Poll: Will a price hike stop you from using the Downtown carpark?

Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

Do you use the city's Downtown car park daily? Prices are going up.

Auckland Transport has confirmed the capped daily rate at its Downtown car park is going from $24 to $40 from January 21. A spokesman says it is trying to encourage short-term parking there and get people to use public transport into the city centre. How will this effect your daily commute? Would you consider alternative transport? Is this price hike too much?

Please put NFP in your post if it is not for publication.

2AM Helicopter

Nick from Mount Eden

We’ve been woken 3 times this week around 2AM by a circling low flying helicopter. I assume it’s the police. Does anybody know what’s going on?

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?
