Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

Some supernatural help has been hired in the hope customers and staff at the Resene shop in Cambridge will one day be able to see their favourite furry face again.

Timmy, a handsome 4-year-old tabby, disappeared one weekend in August from his cat house at the rear of the premises. Customer Paul Norfolk and wife Gloria had looked all over town for their favourite store cat, along with the shop’s manager, Kerry Mason, and her staff.

Everything makes a difference for some people - and the nice thing is, other people are now adding their surplus so it has turned itself into a small Pataka Kai. And I get to pick the odd avocado somebody puts in there as a win-win.
Just take a minute a d think whether you have extra.

Home Reserve Playground on the corner of Home Street and King Street in Grey Lynn will be temporarily closed from 1st October 2020 to mid December 2020 while upgrade works are being undertaken.

Waitematā Local Board is proud to be delivering the Home Reserve Upgrade Project. During this time, we encourage you to visit nearby playgrounds, including: Grey Lynn Park, Nixon Park and Western Park.

From the week beginning 28th September 2020, there will be no access into the park from either Home Street or King Street entrances, whilst the works are underway.

The construction works are scheduled to commence Thursday 1st October 2020 and are expected to be complete by mid December 2020 or earlier if practical. The contractor engaged to undertake the works on behalf of Auckland Council is Ventia.

The works will include removal of the existing playground, earthworks, installation of furniture, playground edging and surface, pathway renewal and half court line marking. The existing overgrown vegetation will be replaced with a mix of low growing native species designed to attract birds and insects.

During the works, the contractors will be using digging equipment and transporting material into the Reserve from Home Street entrance. There may be some noise during working hours (7.30am – 5pm, Monday – Friday), but the contractors will aim to keep this to a minimum.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and will make all effort to minimise disruption.

If you have any questions about these planned works, please contact waitematalocalboard@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

Enter a magical world of drama and dress-ups! Children will improve their confidence as they learn acting, public speaking and social skills...

Through drama, movement, improvisation and voice, children will develop their dance, acting and speaking skills and be involved in a host of spring-themed activities to promote problem-solving, participation and imagination.

Children will use their voices, enjoy music and dancing (building rhythm, musicality, following, balance and co-ordination). They will also use role-play and storytelling to build an imaginary spring fantasy-land!

Children will work towards a performance on the final day, which parents are welcome to attend.

5-6 October
9am-3pm
$120 for 2 days
For ages 5-7
