Cyclists will have additional spots to lock up their bikes with new facilities installed as part of a cycleway trial.

Project WAVE is a $1 million cycleway trial in the Viaduct Harbour to connect the Quay and Nelson Street cycleways that could have over a thousand daily users.

Auckland Transport (AT) confirmed two new bike parking facilities able to accommodate 16 bikes have been installed as part of the trial, taking the total number of bike parks along the cycleway to 56.

The project is opposed by a group of residents and business owners.

The two new bike parking facilities are located on Customs Street West between Market Place and Lower Hobson Street. One is located near the Tepid Baths, and one is near O’Hagan’s bar.

The area now has enough space for around 56 bikes, as there were already existing facilities to accommodate 40 bikes before Project WAVE was implemented.

AT spokeswoman Natalie Polley said there are also numerous new bike parking facilities on Quay Street and in the new square as part of the Downtown project.

"That doesn’t even take into account bike parking at the ferry terminal, the AT Downtown Carpark and at many other locations on the Viaduct,” she said.

Did you use to belong to the 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit?

If so, the brigade wants to hear from you!

The 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit turns 100 in July and is still seeking old girls to join the celebrations.

One of the first girl guide units to be formed in Auckland, the group is gearing up to commemorate its centenary.

A social afternoon is planned for July 3, kicking off at 2pm with historic guiding activities such as knot tying and making arm slings.

Guests will be treated to afternoon tea and a birthday cake before photographs are taken of the girls.

The day will end with a singalong around the campfire.

The next day, a church parade will march through St Andrews Church, Epsom, where the unit has been meeting since 1921.

Parishioners are invited to a morning tea after the procession.

The unit, initially known as the St Andrew's Peace Scout Group, is believed to be the first guide company which has kept going since it was launched.

It all started when eighteen-year-old Mona Burgin wrote to the Dominion chief scout Colonel Cosgrove, a New Zealand Boer War veteran, asking about Girl Peace Scouts.

He arranged to meet her in Queen St, Auckland and wrote she would recognize him by the red flower in his buttonhole.

Soon after the meeting Burgin formed the troop on July 6.

Girl Peace Scouts wore khaki uniforms and the St Andrews troop wore a red open-ended tie.

In 1923, the Dominion Council became affiliated with the original Girls Guides Association in London.

*Former unit members can email cavellgirlguidesnz@gmail.com for details of the centenary.

Hi everyone, I want to open up a discussion...

A year ago, my mate Nathan and I were talking about our passions. Mine was climbing and his was home brewing. He recounted his struggles when he first started brewing - The lack of guidance and scattered information was overwhelming and he almost quit after a few failed attempts. As a designer and a person passionate about helping others find their passions, I wanted home brewing to be the first community I help grow based on what I've heard.

Since then, I've personally created a few brews! With Nathan by my side, my now business partner, none have failed (Yaay!). Perhaps I should have done them myself to understand the pain beginners feel... but what it taught me was how straightforward brewing could be. Yet, during the course of my brewing journey, 2 of my friends failed their first batch and gave up.

Nathan and I have created Brewers Clan - A digital platform that helps beginner home brewers brew right the first time. We’re currently in the discovery phase and have built a few features to further discover pains points.

If you’re a beginner home brewer, what are you struggling with?

For established home brewers, what are the most common beginner mistakes you all run into?

Kitchen renovation cost NZ wide can differ based on the company you choose or if you are doing a DIY job. You will save money if you are doing a DIY job but they can be risky if you are not a trained professional. Costs to renovate a kitchen depend on various factors. The intention to renovate or your reason to renovate the kitchen is one of the major factors that will determine your budget.

If you are renovating to sell then we recommend you to renovate using standard mid range materials and not customise your renovation too much. If you are renovating to add comfort or increase the functionality of your kitchen then we recommend our clients to go for more quality products so that you can enjoy your kitchen for a much longer time.

We have created a comprehensive guide for cost of kitchen renovation in New Zealand which list all the factors that contribute to the overall cost for your kitchen. Whether you are doing a DIY job or doing a luxury kitchen renovation, this guide will help you on your research before you renovate your kitchen.
