Morning neighbours,

A number of significant infrastructure projects in and around Hamilton are aligning to deliver a massive boost to the city and region.

Hamilton East list MP Jamie Strange even predicted the city will overtake both Wellington and Christchurch to become the country's second biggest city in 30 years.

Dallas Fisher, chair of regional economic development agency Te Waka, said he knew of one major Waikato construction company that had 37 projects in the works.

The region is "ready to pop".

Hi Neighbours, could you imagine cows floating down the Waikato River?

These cows are floating on Europe's largest port, in another effort to make cattle farming more sustainable. The owners call it the world's first 'floating farm'. It's in Rotterdam and they want it to minimize waste and land use, and also bring food production closer to the city.

Morning neighbours,

Hamilton City Council staff have been treated to a $19k mass team talk at Claudelands Event Centre. It featured motivational speakers and a 25-minute acrobatic performance from circus company The Dust Palace.

Chief executive Richard Briggs defended the spend.

"Old school thinking is you don't spend any money on your staff and you expect them to just show up to work and go hard," he said after the event.

"New school thinking is you've got to give them some purpose for being here, and today was all about understanding that purpose and improving the wellbeing of the community."

"Kia ora – Heidi Brittenden from New World Te Kuiti here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?

My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Allan Scott Rosé 2019. It was personally quite hard to pick one standout wine from the list, but this rosé is so delicious, and I usually don’t even like rosé! It’s a well- balanced dry wine that is also refreshing and fruity with hints of strawberry. If you’re new to rosé, this is a perfect drink to enjoy with friends on a sunny afternoon outdoors.”
