Immigration NZ issue

Sheryn from Pukekohe

Full disclosure : the Lauren in this situation is my first cousin.


I was at her wedding in January, in Reporoa, NZ.

Her Australian husband returned to the UK to finish up his affairs (of the non-adulterous kind), booked to return to NZ later in March, and resume life as part of our family, and start their own family.

Then along came Covid, and now he is stuck in England and INZ will not allow him to return as he does not have a partnership visa, which Australian partners have never needed before, but now suddenly do. By the time you work out that you need one, you can't get one. There was a time in NZ where being legally married meant something, apparently not anymore.

If you think INZ is being a dick, please consider signing this petition by Oct 4 to support Lauren, our family, and anyone else who may be in this dire situation:


Thank you for listening.

Concrete Vehicle Crossing - Quotes Needed

Cecily from Pukekohe

Construction of a Concrete Vehicle Crossing
St Andrews Church, Pukekohe, is seeking quotations for the construction of a replacement vehicle crossing in Queen St near the roundabout with Wesley St.
The design has been completed and a permit obtained from Auckland Transport. The crossing is to be constructed to AT's current standard GD017A-1C. It is approximately 4m by 3.5m. Due to the location there are significant Traffic Control requirements.

If you are interested in providing a quotation please contact Richard for copies of the permit and engineer's drawings via e-mail at richard@gibbonsconsulting.co.nz
