How are you at recycling?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Western Leader

Hi neighbours. Our bad recycling habits have seen 32,300 tonnes of rubbish find its way into recycling bins. This then had to be diverted to landfill, costing us half a million dollars over the last two financial years. How are you at recycling? What rubbish items have you mistakenly thrown in the recycling bin?

One man's special volunteer job at Auckland Airport

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Meet the man who has considered Auckland Airport his second home for over 20 years.

Twice a week, 86-year-old Les Featherstone takes a taxi to the International Terminal where he volunteers for four-and-a-half hours as an airport ambassador, or Bluecoat.

Twenty-four years is a long time to hold down one job, especially as a volunteer, but Featherstone says signing up was the best thing he's ever done.

In recent times, the airport has taken on a new meaning for him following the death of his wife last month.

Do you plan to volunteer once you retire? What would be your dream role?

Mauri o te Kauri Film Screening Saturday 27 July 2019

Vanessa from Titirangi

LOPDELL THEATRE - TITIRANGI
TWO SCREENINGS 5.30pm & 8.00 pm
MEET THE FILMMAKER JAMES MUIR

Kauri are one of the largest and oldest living organisms on earth and they may vanish forever with the onset of the Dieback disease. The last of our greatest natural treasures are rapidly disappearing. Te Mauri o te Kauri ‘The Life-force of the Kauri’ is an exploration of Kauri ecology and the role this giant tree plays in forest ecosystems. The film explores natural history and cultural perceptions, expressing the life-force of this magnificent tree so that people can understand it better and see the forest in a different way.

Weaving stories from Māori and Pakeha Scientists, mingling the concepts of cultures to show how they complement each other and shape our understanding of the environment, this film takes us on a journey through the Kauri lifecycle and exposes the imminent threat from the rampant disease that is wiping out the last remaining forest giants.
