Hi neighbours, my name is Caroline and I'm going to be covering news in the Rodney area temporarily while our other reporter works on another project.
A bit about me: I moved to Auckland from Palmerston North to report for Stuff in 2018. I've spent most of my time at Stuff covering breaking news but also spent six months reporting solely for the Rodney Times.
I live in Albany and will split my time between there, Stuff's Ponsonby and Takapuna offices. I enjoy writing about crime, social issues and anything funny, weird or wacky.
If there is anything you think Stuff should be reporting on or investigating, I'd love to hear from you. Feel free to message me via Neighbourly, Facebook (link below) or flick me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Act now to beat the water shortage:
• Install a rainwater tank (resource consent fees waived).
• Maintain your tank (check guttering is clear).
• Install water saving devices (shower head/taps).
• Install a water sensor to monitor your usage.
Due to the long weekend, the council's kerbside collections will be one day later from 26 – 31 October.
Kia ora neighbours, if you’ve ever dreamed of having an image of New Zealand First leader Winston Peters wearing a cowboy hat, proudly hanging in your living room, now’s your chance to make it a reality. An artwork of Peters, created using coffee, red wine and tea is for sale on Trade Me. The current bid is almost $300, would you buy this?
