PNCC, Palmy Rocks and Friends of Waitoetoe park invite the community to a family picnic and an opportunity to say what you would like to see developed in the park. There will be a sausage sizzle, as well as fruit and water, with maybe a surprise as well. The rock painting is for families to create some treasures to then hide, and to find other treasures for yourselves. There will be a nature treasure hunt and an list of neat things to do and see in the park. If you have a kite or want to kick a ball,, or even set up a game of rounders that can be arranged, but come and have your say on what you want to see as development of a true City asset.
Last night I found a duck at the Lagoon that needed to be helped. I bought it home and I am wondering if there is anyone out there or anyone who knows who could look after this duck to health. I don’t know anything about them. It couldn’t be left as another animal could easily have attacked it. Any suggestions?
Neighbours Day Aotearoa is back and has even more ways you can get involved next year with their theme: The Great Plant Swap 🌻
The first 200 to register their event, whether your usual BBQ, street party or something new like a plant swap, will be sent a packet of seeds to help you get started!
You can also write something nice (in 30 words or less) about your neighbours, community or acts of neighbourliness you've experienced with their new 'Notes for Neighbours' - any sort of note goes including poems! These will be shared on their Facebook, Instagram and website and 5 will be specially chosen to be featured on posters across Aotearoa.
Register your event, big or small, here today:
Now that summer's finally here and the holidays are just around the corner for many, we'd love to hear about your favourite summer holiday memories. Has there been a trip that you continue to think about years later? Where did you go, with who and what did you get up to? What made it such a stand-out experience? As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it included in a travel article. Cheers.
