What do you think of the Hamilton-Auckland commuter train's name?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

It's Te Huia, and was unanimously endorsed by Hamilton City councillors.

However, it still needs final approval from a governance group. Read more here.

Police update on lockdown

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hello Neighbours

Senior Sergeant Kris Clarke in the Waikato DCC tells us police are getting a lot of calls from people concerned that others are flouting lockdown rules.

At this stage, police are informing people and encouraging them to comply - and meeting "very little resistance", Clarke said.

Overall, the streets are much quieter than usual, she said.

Hamilton Press cancelled during lockdown

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi neighbours,
as some of you may have heard, the government last week advised that non-daily publications, such as community newspapers, are not considered essential services under the news and media designation during the Alert Level 4 lockdown. Unfortunately That means that we wonโ€™t be able to print and deliver our your paper over the remaining period of the lockdown. However, we will be putting all important local news/updates on our Neighbourly page during the period.
