Being clear on this is a first step in knowing what you want your local councillors to support or who to vote for. What are the issues you want your next local council to focus on?

Our Urban Forage Mahinga Kai started at Auckland Domain with a walk through the lower tracks with Riki Bennett to discover a range of edible and not so edible plants, trees and berries.

The forage was then followed by a gourmet luncheon and some of the menu items were prepared using the Kai cooker.

The main highlight was the Kahikatea Berry Jelly which consisted of berries foraged from a year ago.

How to deal with neighbourhood disputes

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, most of us are lucky enough to get on with the people we live next door to, but what can you do if you don't?

We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because … View more

We asked some experts how to stop minor irritations turning into something more serious, and who you can you turn to if things start to get out of hand - because being better neighbours can only have a positive impact on the quality of our communities, and who wouldn't want that :)

This is to all people who live down in Stephen Ave, Kona Cres, Poinsettia Place, and the Upper Half of Lincoln Road, from the start Kingdale Rd, and passed Pomaria Rd upwards (you know I am meaning)

I do apologise to all who have received their newspapers quite late last week. I was quite sick on Monday and Tuesday and came down with a horrible cold and quite chesty. Still not 100% but will be able to do normal deliveries this week as best as I can. I have been able to drink a lot of lemon drink like Lift or when I get the chance, I will mix some Raro juice sachets (put for eg two lemonade raro sachets in a 3 litre bottle) with some actual squeezed lemons with water to fill up the bottle, to mix the juice together and drink when ready.

Kia Ora to all the parents out west,

This Saturday, The Re-Creators will be hosting our first Wooden Toy Making Workshop at Kelston Community Centre from 1pm - 3pm.

This workshop is a wonderful woodworking and bonding activity for parents and kids. You will be drilling, sanding pre-cut wood, assembling the parts together, and painting/staining for the finishing touch.

Give your kids the skills to create and handle power tools responsibly from a young age. We help kids grow their confidence in creating and hope to steer them away from the consumption of plastic-covered toys.

Suited for ages 7+, boys and girls, and children must be accompanied by a parent.

Limited spaces so book early: therecreators.co.nz...
