Update: Blind sisters excel at music after Neighbourly user donates piano

Caroline Williams Reporter from Rodney Times

Kia ora neighbours.

In 2019 I wrote about sisters Daelani and Tayla Marsters, who are both blind. The pair really improved on their piano skills after being gifted a piano from Neighbourly user Christine Collins. You can read all about that by clicking 'read more' below.

I'm thrilled to share that Tayla has since put together her own composition, and it's very impressive. You can listen here: www.youtube.com...

There must be more Neighbourly kindness and success stories out there - if so, I'd love to hear from you, email me at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

This year Kiwis are being encouraged to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.

Backyard and communal edible gardens not only provide healthy, sustainable and tasty kai, they also create greater food resiliency within our hapori.

Poll: Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.

Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.

Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.

AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.

Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

If so, please share your experience!
