What's your message to Auckland's newly elected councillors?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from Eastern Courier

Hi neighbours, As Phil Goff is elected as Auckland mayor for a second three year term, a North Shore couple have a message for the incoming council and local board: invest in infrastructure over cutting rates. What issues would you like to see the council take action on this term in your community? Please write NFP if you don't want your comment used in stories.

Sending Love To Those Who Are Alone At Christmas.

Lindsay Upton from Manukau East Council of Social Services (MECOSS)

Christmas embodies a real and inclusive generosity that no other time of the year can match. Yes, there is stress, but there is also kindness – to those alone and in need.
If you'd like to help spread some Christmas cheer and put a smile on someone's face, MECOSS welcomes contributions of hand-made or shop-bought Christmas cards crafted with hand written messages, for distribution to elderly people confined at home or an age-care facility this festive season.
A collection box has been placed in the foyer of the All Saints’ Community Centre, 30 Cook Street, Howick. Christmas cards can dropped in the box, Monday to Friday between 8:00am and 4:00pm until 13 December.
Tips: Have fun being creative, fill your message with love, make sure your writing is legible, and please keep the envelope unsealed.
