Harcourts Helensville

17 Karaka Street, Helensville - NOW $619,000

Character is the primary feature of this wonderful circa 1880 old dame – all grace and cosy charm, yet furnished with modern conveniences. Helensville is known for its historic architecture so there are a few of these in the town, but none like this 3 bedroom beauty. Refurbishments were carried out some years ago, including kitchen, bathroom, wiring, plumbing and insulation, but there is now some maintenance to do and the owners have revised their price to accommodate this need. Outside, the spacious property is ideal for energetic youngsters and pets. Check this truly lovely old girl out. With the price revised downwards, now would be a good time to make an offer.

Further details can be found on the link below.

Bakers back SPCA

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland bakers are being called to roll up their sleeves to help vulnerable animals.

The SPCA is appealing for keen cooks to take part in its annual Cupcake Day fundraiser on November 2.

The event has raised nearly $3.2 million over the years, helping tens of thousands of animals that come through SPCA's doors each year in need of care, shelter and veterinary treatment.

Budding chefs are invited to whip up a batch of cupcakes before selling them at work, school and to family and friends.

Last year saw 1092 home bakers and 641 businesses get involved.

SPCA CEO Andrea Midgen said recent events had taken a big bite out of the charity but here was something tangible supporters could do to help.

Funds raised will be used to aid in rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing animals in need around the country.

Poll: Are you confident Auckland's light rail project will go ahead?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland mayor Phil Goff says an announcement could be made soon on Auckland's light rail.

The $6 billion project to revive a tram network in Auckland was one of Labour's initial election promises in 2017.

After Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's big victory on October 17, the light rail system connecting the airport to Auckland's central city may finally get off the ground.

But Transport Minister Phil Twyford alluded key decisions are still to be made.

Twyford said in June the governing parties could not agree on a preferred proposal and the future of the project would be decided by the new Government following the election.
