The Great Auckland Virtual Duck Race

Resene

Due to Covid-19, The Great Auckland Duck Race this year is going VIRTUAL. Instead of cheering on your duck by the white-water rapids at Vector Wero Whitewater Park, do it from the comfort of your couch! On October 18th go to ‘The Great Auckland Duck Race’ Facebook page.

Can I attend the event on the day?
Unfortunately not. Due to the uncertainty of which alert level Auckland will be in, the physical event is sadly not taking place but you can view the races virtually as detailed above.

Can I still buy a duck?
Yes! Business ducks and Everybody tickets through our website. Business ducks will need to be returned by October 7th. Everybody duck tickets will be available to buy until October 13th

What prizes can I win?
We have fantastic prizes for each race:
● School Race: 1st, 2nd & 3rd
● Businesses Race: 1st, 2nd & 3rd
● Everybody’s Race: 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th
● Best-Dressed School Duck
● Best-Dressed Business Duck

How can I still support the event?
You can still support the event by;
● Being interactive on our Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn
● Buying a Business duck on our website
● Buying a $2 Everybody ticket on our website.

All of us here at Life Education Trust Counties Manukau are incredibly grateful for all the support we have received thus far! Thank you to all our supporters and helpers! All profits raised will go directly towards delivering Life Education’s health & well-being programme in local schools.

Let’s Recycle Right, Auckland

The Team from Auckland Council

There are three simple things we can do to help improve the quality of recycling that’s being collected.
1. Completely empty out containers, especially ones with liquid or drink.
2. Rinse out all containers. The cleaner the better is the rule of thumb.
3. Sort your waste carefully to make sure only the right recyclable containers from the kitchen, bathroom and laundry go in the recycling bin

Are you are recycling legend? Play the game now to improve your kerbside recycling. See if you know what can and what can’t go into your kerbside recycling bin.

Traffic congestion on Kohimarama - St Johns roads

Jan from Kohimarama

Does anyone else find that the Felton Matthew lights have caused chaos on Kohimarama / St Johns roads? It now takes up to 20 minutes to make what should be a 6 minute journey to Glen Innes or Stonefields. The lights took long enough to be set up but now there is a constant logjam from St Heliers Bay Road through to Felton Matthew Ave. It is particularly exacerbated by location of the bus stops and by cars parked on the side of the road. Should we as a group be asking/telling the Council to get it sorted ?
