Kia ora neighbours,
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced a $37 million recovery fund for Auckland businesses this morning, which will include 100,000 free vouchers to visit Auckland Council facilities, attractions, and venues.
The goal is to encourage Aucklanders to "rediscover the best of local businesses and visitor attractions" by visiting places like the zoo and museums, or attend summer events organised by community and cultural groups.
What business or attraction would you spend your voucher on this summer? Share your thoughts below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the conversations section of the Papakura Courier.

When I got my original vaccination, I had pains in the top of my feet within days that made it hard to walk and lasted for months. Last Wednesday I had the booster and the foot pain just returned Monday night. Any doctors out there with some insight?
