Poll: Do you support a sugar tax?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from North Harbour News

Hi neighbours, an international report has ranked NZ's child obesity rate second-worst in the OECD with 39 per cent of Kiwi kids overweight or obese. Unicef is now calling for the Government to introduce a sugar tax to curb the problem. Would you support this? What do you think needs to be done about child obesity?

Attention: Bird Lovers and people with building skills.

Chris from Mairangi Bay

We'll be rescuing now-retired local legend "The Bird Lady" Sylvia Durrant's handmade aviaries and transporting them to the park we are making at Mairangi Arts Centre to bring them back to life and use in a self-learning programme about (among other things) DIY bird first aid.

I really need help/advice on how to dismantle and re-assemble the aviaries.

I would be super grateful if anyone can help in any way.
