PET STAY NOTE - We will accept cancellations to pre booked peak times due to forced covid lockdown - so don't delay book today to avoid disappointment for busy October and December school holidays. Reservations for out of season periods can be made at shorter notice.

A BIT ABOUT US
We're the most affordable and serene Pet Stay in Auckland, offering a number of affordable solutions, whether you are looking at a day stay or for long term boarding when you are away.

Fairfield Pet Lodge (FPL) is family owned and operated and has been in the Taljaard family (Anton, Crisna and Ashlee) ownership for the past six years, but the facility was established in approximately 1978! FPL is situated on a lifestyle block of 5 stunning hectares including lush paddocks, large gardens and mature trees, located about 7.5km from Clevdon and just under 40km from Auckland airport.

Anton has an abundance of experience with animals, serving 12 years as a dog handler in the South African Police Service, shortly after arriving to NZ he volunteered his services at the SPCA in Mangere. He also holds severage degrees in business and management. Therefore, it's no surprise that managing FPL is based on modern and sustainable practises. hence the slogan "We do not follow we lead" holds true for FPL

Did you know 1 in 4 New Zealand adults will suffer from a mental disorder or distress at some point in their lives? When they do, let’s make sure they don’t have to go it alone. To create safer, more caring communities we need to not only look after ourselves but those around us as well.

For the month of September, we want to come together to share ways to boost mental health and well-being. For example, you could host an online catch up or quiz, call a neighbour who lives alone, challenge your family and friends to try a new hobby or move your body more to improve your own well-being. If you or someone you know is going through a rough patch, don’t forget you can call or text 1737 anytime for free support from a trained counsellor.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re looking out for your well-being and helping others with theirs this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz

Dear neighbours,

We're looking for lockdown gardening ideas! With New Zealanders stuck at home everyone is keen to get into their gardens, but they can't get to the shops to buy plants and seeds. So we want to hear from you some suggestions for crops you can start or sow from what you have on hand or useful gardening hacks using just what you have at home already without going to the shops.

It doesn't have to be a big idea - just something like growing spring onions from the base or sprouting avocado seeds to make a houseplant. Send your tips and ideas to mailbox@nzgardener.co.nz and we'll publish the best ideas in NZ Gardener.

Make sure you include your full name and address - only your name and the region you live in will be published but if we use your tip we will send you a free copy of the magazine.

Hi Neighbour,

How is lockdown treating you all?

Yes, a lot is on hold right now - but there are still plenty of ways you can keep moving forward and focus on your business potential.

Having an online presence is essential within the confines of lockdown and is an astute investment for the future. Getting eCommerce up and running really isn’t that hard, we promise! Here at Digital Boost we can help you get started.

Waikato business Bear and Moo went from a single person working out of a spare bedroom to growing tenfold within a year. Founder Hannah Porter attributes the success to schooling up on simple digital tools. Shopify, email marketing and social media were all pivotal in helping the business grow so quickly. Get inspired by Bear and Moo's story below.

All regions outside of the Auckland and Northland region will move to Alert Level 3 11.59pm Tuesday August 31.

In a press conference Friday afternoon, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed that Auckland and Northland will likely need to complete a further full two weeks at level 4 in order to keep the Delta variant from spreading further in the regions.

Here's what you need to know
- There will be regional boundaries, there will be no travel allowed between regions unless required for essential services.
- Boundaries maintained in the last February lockdown will be reinstated.
- Around 500 locations of interest have been identified.
- The exposure site in Warkworth is a large workplace. Ardern hoped the people of Northland will understand why they're moving with caution. Northland won't always be grouped in with Auckland.
