The Bible - Where Do I Start?

Ole from Takanini

In order to fully understand the power of prophecy, poetry, biography, or letters, we first need to understand how to read them! Join Jesse Hereford as we discover that Scripture - though it all points to Jesus - nonetheless is made up of many different literary genres.

Play Streets to Roll out in Takanini

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Playing on the street with neighbours once proved a common sight in South Auckland.

Children would ride their bikes and compete in cricket matches.

Healthy Families South Auckland is launching a Play Streets initiative to revive this childhood tradition and encourage neighbours to socialise more.

On April 24, the pilot event will see cars banned temporarily from Cunningham Place in Takanini to pave the way for fun seeking residents.

Healthy Families South Auckland Lead Systems Innovator Fila Fuamatu said when streets were safe, neighbours and whanau could connect.

"The residents of Te Mahia are very concerned about their tamariki who spend a lot of time indoors using technology devices but not getting physically active or connecting with others in the neighbourhood."

Fuamatu said she hoped the event would empower members of the community to create opportunities for their own play and future social events.

“The residents, many of whom are elderly or have health issues, love having the opportunity to work together and give back. They’re a real creative bunch so I’m excited to see what they come up with."

Part of Waka Kotahi's Innovating Streets programme, Play Streets is managed by Auckland Council, Healthy Families South Auckland and Healthy Families Waitakere.

What are some of your early memories of street games?

I remember the old elastics game, skipping and hopscotch.

Which games would you like to see making a comeback in your streets?
