While the city sleeps, Auckland's urban forest will welcome home the first of seven mature pohutukawa in Quay St.

The dual-crane operation will take a painstaking nine hours from 7.30 pm Wednesday night to return the majestic tree from Teal Park to its original home.

The 40-year-old pohutukawa will take pride of place in the city's new Te Wananga waterfront space about midnight, weather permitting.

Reuniting the city centre with the sea, Te Wānanga will open for Aucklanders in June.

Mayor Phil Goff said he was pleased to see the first tree returning to bring shade and much-needed greenery to Auckland's CBD.

Studies showed trees had a positive effect on the community's health and well-being, he said.

The pohutukawa were moved to Teal Park a year ago and tended by Auckland Council arborists.

Hi Auckland,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.

One of our most popular projects for our Level 4 Advanced Cookery students is to design a three-course menu, costed to a budget and then prepared for a friend to savour.

The three-course menu includes a fish dish, involving the filleting of a fish, freshly made ribbon pasta and dessert - all with a Mediterranean theme. Take a look at this week's impressive efforts enjoyed by the Advanced students. They then serve the meal for their own guest and also get to sit down and eat with them.

Here are some photos of the creative dishes prepared for the Mediterranean Luncheon.

A trial cycle way is being rolled out in Auckland's CBD.

Construction has started on the bike path which winds its way through the inner city's Viaduct area, connecting the Nelson St and Quay St cycle ways.

More loading zones, pedestrian crossing points and a one-way system will also form part of the trial which encompasses Market Place, part of Customs St West and lower Hobson St.

The bike path will open in stages and is expected to be fully open by the middle of May.

It is among more than 20 designs planned for Auckland through Project WAVE, funded by Waka Kotahi NZTA's Innovating Streets for People pilot fund, to boost people-friendly spaces.

Waitemata Local Board chairman Richard Northey said Project WAVE would provide a key missing link for people on bikes.

"It will now be possible for people on bikes and scooters to get from Karangahape Rd and the Northwestern Cycleway directly, all the way down to Quay St, the Viaduct and Britomart on a protected cycleway," he said.

"That is a huge positive and will encourage more people to jump on a bike, knowing their journey will be a safe one."

Auckland Transport will monitor the project during the trial and call for community feedback.

Go to AT.govt.nz/projectwave for more information.
