New Plymouth Riding for the Disabled finally achieved their goal of a covered arena in January this year. It is a huge asset to our organisation, and we haven’t had to cancel a session due to bad weather since.
This all came to fruition through funding applications, sponsorship, fundraising, and a lot of hard work from individuals and volunteers.
It was disappointing and disheartening to arrive at our grounds on Tuesday to find parts of the arena had been senselessly vandalised sometime overnight.

The pictures are of slashes made in a wall, and a wooden gate in the arena fenceline was wrenched off its hinges and thrown in the nearby creek.

If you saw or heard anything suspicious at our venue at Barrett's Domain on Tuesday please contact our President - Kevin Neilson 0272737534

Thank you.

Formatting issue on Firefox browser

Tony from Inglewood

Hopefully the organisation that runs Neighbourly monitors their message boards as there doesn't appear to be any other way to contact them via their website.

I have noticed that over the past few days Neighbourly displays in a large (mobile version) display when veiwed on desktop using Firefox. The problem doesn't exist when viewed via Edge so I suspect Neighbourly have an incompatibility issue with the Firefox browser. Time for the IT boys to earn their keep!

The up sides are that I can view Neighbourly without needing my reading glasses, and all those pesky adverts down the sides have disappeared.

Picked in the morning, on your plate for lunch

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours,

Read about this Dunedin cafe where vegetables from the kitchen has been grown by the owner. The staples of pumpkins, beetroot, cabbage and carrots do well here, he says, with a wide variety of other crops including spring onions, kohlrabi, celery, fennel, kale, potatoes, silverbeet, leek, mint and herbs. Yummy!
