HELP!! 2nd hand smoke from neighbours!

Carol from Northcote

Hi everyone

is there anything we can do to stop or reduce second hand smoke coming from our neighbours please? We have a newborn and the smell of smoking is floating through our house... my baby seems to be coughing a bit more recently and i’m worry it is due to their smoking from balcony.. Even i feel terrible from the smell so poor baby must be worse 😰Or if there is nothing we can do to stop it would getting an air purifier works? Thank you all

Support a Kiwi dad this Father's Day

Julia de Ruiter from The Salvation Army NZ

Father's Day is just around the corner and for many Kiwi dads, getting a treat isn't an option due to the family's limited disposable income or being a solo dad. You can make Father's Day go further by donating a Father's Bundle to a Kiwi family for only $19.

At this time of year, we want to acknowledge all the dads in New Zealand who work hard to provide for their families - particularly the families who can't make ends meet. So, we created a bundle of goodies that these Kiwi dads will love! The bundle has some chicken, a chunky soup, an apple pie for the family to share, plus a chocolate bar (just for Dad)!

The new Kauri Glen Reserve track and boardwalk is now open!

John Gillon from John Gillon - Kaipatiki Local Board Member

The Shore Action team visited Kauri Glen Reserve today to check out the new Section 18 track and boardwalk! The realigned track is the first bush track to reopen after being upgraded to prevent kauri dieback disease, and part of the Kaipātiki Local Board's efforts to provide new and alternative tracks away from kauri trees in our parks.
A report is coming to the September Local Board meeting seeking approval for a number of other track changes in our parks. For Kauri Glen Reserve, this will include several other realignments, including a 16m high elevated treetop boardwalk! It will also include a proposal to temporarily close the paths to/from Raymond Tce and Tui Glen Rd until those tracks can be brought up to dieback-preventative standard.
