Hi neighbours,

An exciting way to stay active during the Covid-19 lockdown, explore Auckland and win prizes has arrived in the form of the Street Art Bike Challenge.

To participate people simple need to snap a photo of themselves, their bike, a piece of street art, and share the photo with the hashtag #streetartbikechallenge.

The event will run throughout October and aims to encourage people to cycle around the city and stay active throughout the Covid-19 lockdown.

It is being hosted by EcoMatters Bike Hubs, who have compiled a map of over 200 street art pieces around Auckland to get people started.

Over $1000 worth in prizes are up for grabs. Will you be participating in the Street Art Bike Challenge?

Hi Neighbour,

Kia ora neighbours. It’s still easy to get a Covid-19 test or vaccination, even over Labour Weekend.

On Friday, the Government announced the Auckland, Waitematā and Counties Manukau DHBs would need to have vaccinated 90 per cent of their eligible populations before the Auckland region can leave lockdown.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health is asking residents in New Lynn, Bayswater, Rosedale and Redvale to get tested if they are unwell, due to a concerning number of cases in those areas.

We’ve put together a list of all the vaccine and testing centres that are open for all or part of the long Labour Weekend. Click 'read more' for the list.

Kia ora! G here from Team Supergenerous, a Kiwi social enterprise helping to make your donations to charitable organisations go a little bit further.

Did you know that nearly $250 million of donation rebates go unclaimed every year? Imagine the good some of that money could do in our local community? That's why we exist, to make the rebate claiming process easy and help you regift donation rebates to your favourite charities and schools.

All you have to do is sign up and tell us who you've donated to over the past four years. We then gather the receipts, lodge them with the IRD, manage the claims process and regift your rebates to the charitable organisations you care about.

Here's a bit more about us, otherwise we hope you'll join us on our mission to Help Good Go Further!

A new on-demand public transport service is set to be trialled in south Auckland.

AT Local will begin on October 31 with vans operating in Conifer Grove, Takanini, and Papakura for 12 months.

Auckland mayor Phil Goff said AT Local will provide safe, flexible access to key bus and train routes.

“AT Local vehicles are fully electric and if the trial of this service is successful it will enable more people to leave their cars at home, helping to reduce carbon emissions and traffic congestion on our roads,” he said.

As a rideshare service, people will share the vehicle with other passengers going to the same place.

There will be close to 400 pick up and drop off points located throughout the service zone, and customers can pay using an AT HOP card.

Bookings can be made through an AT Local app or the AT customer call centre.

The service will run weekdays from 5.30am 9.30pm, and on weekends and public holidays from 6.30am to 8.30pm.

“During Alert Level 2, 3 and 4 only 10-seater vans will be used and a maximum of three customers will be able to use the service at a time, to ensure physical distancing,” an Auckland Transport (AT) spokeswoman said.

Will you be using the new AT on-demand vans in south Auckland? Comment and explain why!
