How much control does your boss have over your life?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is investigating the increasing creep of control your boss might have over you life outside work. This might include having to send photos of your remote working space (or having it personally checked off), having to abide by a social media policy, not being able to express political views in social settings, or not being able to have a secondary income. Does this sound familiar? Have you got a story to tell? Email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Have you signed up for Neighbours Day 2021 yet? There's lots of ways you can join in...check out our website to register today:

Northcote Point wharf back in business Monday

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Northcote Point wharf will reopen to the public on Monday and the ferry will be running again for the first time in two years.

The wharf has been renamed to Te Onewa Northcote Point, making it the first dual-named wharf on Auckland's ferry network.

It was closed in 2018 due to structural deterioration- the wooden structure under the deck had to be either repaired or replaced.

The $2.6 million work to renew the 60-year-old pier started in July and finished at the end of the year under budget despite the disruption caused by Covid-19.

Auckland Transport also upgraded the shelter for ferry users, installed new seating, improved security and lighting at the quay.
