Hi neighbours,

An exciting way to stay active during the Covid-19 lockdown, explore Auckland and win prizes has arrived in the form of the Street Art Bike Challenge.

To participate people simple need to snap a photo of themselves, their bike, a piece of street art, and share the photo with the hashtag #streetartbikechallenge.

The event will run throughout October and aims to encourage people to cycle around the city and stay active throughout the Covid-19 lockdown.

It is being hosted by EcoMatters Bike Hubs, who have compiled a map of over 200 street art pieces around Auckland to get people started.

Over $1000 worth in prizes are up for grabs. Will you be participating in the Street Art Bike Challenge?

LOCKDOWN

Linda from Henderson

UNBELIEVABLE!!. When is this ever going to end? Come November 1st, no doubt there will still be ongoing restrictions to our freedom.
What I resent so much, is that those of us who have been vacccinated for months, played the game, did every thing we were meant to, and still we are locked down.

UNBELIEVABLE!!. When is this ever going to end? Come November 1st, no doubt there will still be ongoing restrictions to our freedom.
What I resent so much, is that those of us who have been vacccinated for months, played the game, did every thing we were meant to, and still we are locked down.
All these Govt. promises that when Auckland reaches 90% vaccination we will have more freedom. What a joke. 89% vacccinated, how can it take until 1st November to vaccinate 1%.
I am so angry at all these months of being dictated to as to how I can live my life. Or not live it, might be more accurate!

😀💉Covid-19: Auckland hits 90 per cent first doses, 75 per cent fully vaccinated💉😀

Fiona from Henderson

If the above headline found on Stuff's website is accurate, then allowing for the 5-8 weeks between vaccines, we should have some sort of freedom by Christmas - fingers crossed😉

Halloween trick or treaters

Jayde from Henderson

Hey I was just wondering what everyone was doing for Halloween this year.

I’ve bought a whole bunch of lollies and was planning on setting up a table outside with chocolates in in ziplock bags and some hand sanitiser for any kids passing by.

What’s everyone else’s plans for Halloween?

A man suffered a heart attack while shopping in a store.
The store manager called for an ambulance when they saw him collapse to the floor.
The paramedics rushed the man to the nearest hospital, where he had emergency open-heart bypass surgery.

He awakened from the surgery to find himself in the care of nuns at the Catholic Hospital.

A nun was seated next to his bed holding a clipboard, a pen, and a collection of forms. She asked him how he was going to pay for his treatment.

She asked, "Do you have health insurance?"
He replied in a weak raspy voice, "No health insurance."

The nun asked, "Do you have money in the bank?"
He replied, "No money in the bank."

The irritated nun continued, “Do you have a relative who could help you with the payments?"
He replied, "I have only a spinster sister and she is a nun."

The nun became agitated and announced, "Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God!"
The patient replied, “Perfect. Send the bill to my brother-in-law.”

😷😷Please wear your mask😷😷

Sadly, we've reached a new high of positive Covid results today, absolutely shocking and so very disappointing.
We've all read the posters telling us to wear our mask (and social distance) since way back when all of this Covid stuff started.
We've all heard the various Government departments and media platforms telling us the exact same message, hell even our leader has told us to do this almost on a daily message as so many people just haven't got the message yet.
And yet ... so many people won't because they can't be bothered or they will refuse to do so spouting this, that or the other.
Now, unless they are medically signed off proving that they can't wear a mask for medial reasons, there is absolute no reason whatsoever for them to not be wearing a mask
Also, if they are wearing a mask - there are those who are wearing it incorrectly which is in effect a waste of time wearing one then.
We are all clever enough to know that wearing a mask will not stop the virus, but it sure as hell will slow down the transmission of it between each other.
The masks are to protect each other, your family, my family, everyone's family.
I have included a couple of pics to remind all of us how to wear the mask correctly, even one for the cat lovers - lol
While I'm here, when you dispose of the masks, please, PLEASE dispose of them correctly.
I'm fed up seeing them disposed of all over the place now e.g. gutters, people's gardens, thrown out of the car windows etc ... replacing the takeaways rubbish we used to see before lockdown.
Those poor people who have to come up behind you and pick them up, putting their lives at risk, all because you were too lazy to put your mask in the rubbish bin.
PLEASE dispose of them correctly in the rubbish bins and don't forget to sanitise your hands afterwards.

Kia ora neighbours. It’s still easy to get a Covid-19 test or vaccination, even over Labour Weekend.

On Friday, the Government announced the Auckland, Waitematā and Counties Manukau DHBs would need to have vaccinated 90 per cent of their eligible populations before the Auckland region can leave lockdown.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is asking residents in New Lynn, Bayswater, Rosedale and Redvale to get tested if they are unwell, due to a concerning number of cases in those areas.

We’ve put together a list of all the vaccine and testing centres that are open for all or part of the long Labour Weekend. Click 'read more' for the list.

Kia ora! G here from Team Supergenerous, a Kiwi social enterprise helping to make your donations to charitable organisations go a little bit further.

Did you know that nearly $250 million of donation rebates go unclaimed every year? Imagine the good some of that money could do in our local community? That's why we exist, to make the rebate claiming process easy and help you regift donation rebates to your favourite charities and schools.

All you have to do is sign up and tell us who you've donated to over the past four years. We then gather the receipts, lodge them with the IRD, manage the claims process and regift your rebates to the charitable organisations you care about.

Here's a bit more about us, otherwise we hope you'll join us on our mission to Help Good Go Further!
