Swimming warnings at Auckland beaches

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Auckland Council has alerted beach-goers to 39 city spots that have a "high risk" of illness from swimming.

The warnings come after yesterday's deluge of rain that overloaded parts of the storm and wastewater networks. A black alert indicating a very high risk of illness from swimming was issued for Castor Bay just after 3pm yesterday.

It's recommended that people do not enter the water while the warnings are in place.
Check here to see where's safe to swim.

Hazy weekend for New Zealand.. again

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!

Who can install safety gate (deck)

Nancy from Botany Downs

While Im still on neighbourly for East Auckland, was wanting to check if does anyone know to install a safety gate on a deck. Its just to put a barrier throughout the deck to prevent my dog from jumping out as the front gate is not yet fixed. Attached is the photo of the deck. I'm not a tradie so this is kinda hard for me to do myself. This is a rental property so something that can be removed for future. Pretty much just really to put an enclosure throughout the deck. If you have any other alternative option please feel free to let me know on 02108768677. I will be moving to Greenlane looking if this can be done before I move.in will be great depending on the cost it will take. Appreciate all your responses👍 Thank you😊
