Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, If Auckland Transport, and maybe SkyCity had their way, the long-haul bus terminal would be re-located by this year. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei had no idea that their land was wanted. Does the terminal need a new downtown home? Read the story below:

Uplands Kindergarten is 50 years young this Sunday 1 March.

Head Teacher from Uplands Kindergarten

Past and present families and friends, please come along, if you find you are able to at the last minute, on Sunday between 10am and 1pm.
Our service at 10am in Somervell Church will be family friendly and we will cut the cake during the service and sing our favourite songs - plus Happy Birthday. Alumni, please join us for Tu tira mai and Great Big God – we are sure you will remember the words!

After the service we have refreshments, cake, BBQ sausages and the compulsory asparagus rolls and fairy bread downstairs in the kindergarten. We have facepainters and a pirate, a photo booth and a memory book for you to write in.

We look forward to seeing you.

What creative ways are you saving water?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours. Our water use is "skyrocketing" according to Watercare, breaking previous water records three times last week. The water company says if we continue to use more and more water on hot days, restrictions may be introduced. What creative ways are you trying to save water? Do you have a timer in your shower? Have you replaced your herbs with cacti so you don't have to water them? Let us know, we'd love to hear your stories.
