Only 31 per cent of people in New Zealand's biggest city have voted in the Local Body Elections, with polls set to close at midday.

As of Saturday morning, Auckland voter turnout was sitting at 31.48 per cent, which is 3.7 per cent lower than in 2016 and 1.7 per cent below 2013, which had the lowest ever turnout for an Auckland Council election.

Usually the last day of voting will add between two and three per cent, meaning this years election could fall short of the 2013 low of 35.2 per cent.

⭕Can you draw a perfect cirlce?⭕

Fiona from Henderson

It seems like a geeky thing to say, but everyone in school probably secretly looked up to that one artsy student who could draw near-perfect circles with their pencil.

It seems like a geeky thing to say, but everyone in school probably secretly looked up to that one artsy student who could draw near-perfect circles with their pencil.
Some might have convinced themselves they’d be able to snap up the talent once they were grownups, but if adulting has taught you anything, skills don’t come naturally with age.
This game proves drawing a perfect circle is just as tricky as it was when you were a child.
This is a perfect game to wind down on a Friday while preparing for the weekend.
A warning though, it is addictive to try and beat your 'best score'😉
Have fun😉

Should council agency staff get big pay bonuses ? - Reply

My own response is this. That is a huge lot of money to be giving as bonuses to this particular council agency. Look, at any work place, there should be some work incentive for working so many work hours at any job or workplace for the employees or the job at general I understand that. I used to work at Spotlight, I used to get a christmas bonus with my pay once every year. This was with all Spotlight stores in NZ and in Australia. This was our little perk once every year we employees and the employers get towards December. I don't know what other stores get here in NZ, but I am sure everyone would get the same, not sure though.

Instead of taking bonuses away from work places or any agencies, look at what the MP's at Wellington earn and see if what they earn is actually much more than what the average worker is earning in the way of bonuses.

What do others think?

While out on my walkabouts I have found a few plants that I either have forgotten the name of don't know it. I have tried to find the exact names of the following plants using various apps to no avail, so I thought I would ask the very helpful & knowledgeable people out here in Neighbourly land.
The first post is a beautiful tree/bush I came across with what looks like two colours for flowers. I know that it was two plants right next to one another. The flowers are bell like, waxy and very pretty.
One red and one white - both with yellow centres
