Vegan fish and chips - would you try them?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, Grey Lynn's newest vegan joint Wise Boys is serving vegan 'fish' and chips, with beer-battered banana blossoms in place of snapper.

We took them down to the beach to see how they held up. Are you tempted to try them this summer?

Auckland bus strike: What you need to know

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

More than 70,000 daily bus trips could be affected by a suspension dealt to hundreds of NZ Bus drivers across Auckland. The suspension comes after tensions between NZ Bus and union members as they tried to settle on a new collective agreement regarding pay and work hours. Union members had been declining bus fares from passengers, and planned to do so until Christmas before the suspension began. Now drivers will go without pay until Christmas Eve.
NZ Bus' biggest area is central Auckland, all of the Link services, and those serving the main isthmus arterials to eastern suburbs and along Mt Eden, Dominion and Sandringham Roads, as well as some to the outer west and northwest, and on the North Shore.
How has the bus driver suspension affected you? Let us know in the comments.

Crash Corner Update

Denise Lee from Denise Lee MP

Hi neighbours,

Construction at Crash Corner (Church and Victoria Street intersection, Onehunga) is well underway!

As we gear up for the busy part of Christmas, construction will halt from Monday 9th December (today) and will re-commence on Thursday 26th December.

During this second phase of construction, the intersection will be fully closed. From the 26th December to the 15th January, detours will be in place but access to properties around the intersection will be maintained.

I hope you are keeping sane during the silly season. Please remember to drive safe on our local roads, particularly as road layouts change.

For any project related questions, please contact site manager Gareth Jones on 027 403 1551 or my office on 0800 DENISEMP.
