Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Neighbours,

To help more people get home safely on the last day of the work year for many, Auckland Transport is making all travel on buses and trains free from 4pm on Friday, December 21.

AT’s Group Manager Metro Service Delivery Stacey Van Der Putten said you can a have a drink after work, and you don’t even have to think about the car, just get the bus or the train.

“Also, if you’ve never used public transport in Auckland, this is a great opportunity to give it a go.”

What do you think about this offer? Will you use the offer?

One man's special volunteer job at Auckland Airport

Sarah Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Meet the man who has considered Auckland Airport his second home for over 20 years.

Twice a week, 86-year-old Les Featherstone takes a taxi to the International Terminal where he volunteers for four-and-a-half hours as an airport ambassador, or Bluecoat.

Twenty-four years is a long time to hold down one job, especially as a volunteer, but Featherstone says signing up was the best thing he's ever done.

In recent times, the airport has taken on a new meaning for him following the death of his wife last month.

Do you plan to volunteer once you retire? What would be your dream role?

Fresh garden vegetables needed for 24 y.o. post-op cancer patient

James from Remuera

Dear Neighbours, I am looking for fresh (preferably organic) vegetables for a 24 y.o. Sikh immigrant lad in Papatoetoe who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumour. He is now post-op and needs excellent nutrition of the kind that only uber-fresh vegetables can provide. If you have any surplus in your gardens right now (carrots, spinach, silver beet, broccoli/cabbage/cauliflower, lettuce etc) you'd be doing this kid a massive favour. If you know of any keen vegetable gardeners please spread the news. I can collect from you and deliver to him. Please call or txt to my mobile 021 277 45 77 if you can help. Many thanks in advance, Jim.
