My Kind Neighbour nomination

Mandy from Te Aroha

I nominate Angela Thompson.
She has dropped feijoas off to many doorsteps several times. Angela phones people who live on their own every week. Offering shopping etc. Angela has organised lawns to be mowed for single parents. Angela has organised small outside jobs for others and has collected items from out of town when attending hospital appointments and just before lock down was announced, she organised the Love Grace handbag appeal with over 150 bags full of goodies collected.1 day before Lockdown Angela delivered them to the project in Auckland. Angela is also very good at keeping in touch with neighbours on the site.
Truly a neighbour to be cherished.

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Un-bear-lievable! Check out the awesome set up that won the AMI Kind Neighbour a couple of weeks ago. Have you got a neighbour you'd like to recognise? Nominate them here!

“I would like to nominate and THANK our great neighbour's living at Viv Davie Martin Drive for their creativity and huge effort during lock down. They lifted all our spirits with their daily Teddy bear reenactment on how to keep busy. Each day people came to see what Teddy bear was up to. With keen interest kids in our neighbourhood even gave Teddy a proper name...meet Vincent LOL! It's through times like this that such acts of goodness should be acknowledged and the memories they hold forever treasured. A selected few photos of Vincent's daily lockdown activities "thanks Vincent :)"
