Kia ora Hutt City, Neighbours Day Aotearoa 2022 will be encouraging people to connect through kai. This could be sharing a cuppa, fresh produce, a recipe or hosting a picnic or BBQ.

We thought we would kick things off now by encouraging people to share a favourite recipe.

This could be a whānau favourite, your aunty’s special chutney, a secret (or potentially not!) curry dish, or your most-loved cake.

We’ll then share your recipe throughout the land for people to try, share, and enjoy within their communities.

Either email your recipe to kiaora@neighboursday.org.nz or submit it here - www.neighboursday.org.nz...

Hi Neighbour,

We’re all pretty well-versed in securing our homes when we head out the door to work, the shops, or a walk around the block. Locking the doors and setting the house alarm is second nature to many of us. But sometimes we aren’t quite so cautious when it comes to our online security, which protects many of our personal and business assets.

Although no one is immune - don't waste another minute worrying that your business might become a target. Instead, get clued up on a few easy steps you can take to keep yourself and your business safe.

Why not give your business a cyber security risk assessment or ensure you have secured your website - it’s simple and we can help.

Digital Boost is here to guide you through protecting yourself online - doing so may save you a lot of time and stress in the future. We've got simple-to-follow videos on everything from software updates to password authentication and phishing.

Safeguarding your business is time well spent, so arm yourself with the knowledge today!

The first look at the proposed design for the Naenae Pool and Fitness suite is here!

Before we get into detailed design and begin construction, we want to check in with everyone who will be using the pool to make sure we're delivering the best facility possible – for Naenae and Te Awakairangi.
In this draft design, you'll notice features that reflect what the community and aquatic sports users told us they wanted. We're;

🏊‍♂️ Keeping the 50-metre pool;

🎉 making sure the facility is a place for birthdays, special occasions, and the building is accessible; and

🌴 moving the site position in Walter Mildenhall park to better connect it with Hillary Court.

This is your chance to give feedback so we can ensure this plan for the pool reflects your needs! Let us know what you think 👇

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Chewie

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Chewie the rabbit.
"I came into SPCA with a damaged eye beyond repair. The wonderful vet team couldn't save it, so I had an operation to have it removed. It hasn't slowed me down at all, you just have to be aware that I can’t see you approaching me so please don't startle me.… View more

"I came into SPCA with a damaged eye beyond repair. The wonderful vet team couldn't save it, so I had an operation to have it removed. It hasn't slowed me down at all, you just have to be aware that I can’t see you approaching me so please don't startle me.
I would love to be a single indoor bunny where I get all the human attention. I am a clean boy and will go into my large litter tray for toileting. I love gentle pats on my head and sometimes come up to you for treats. I regularly binkie around super fast, and when I'm tired I do bunny flops as I am a happy boy.
I love space and the outdoors so I will need a large grassy area with a weatherproof hutch for outside during the day. My indoor area must be big enough for me to spend the day and night comfortably. My caregivers ask that rabbits always come inside at night, to be part of the family and to keep me safe. I could go to a home with friendly cats as I've met some before."
