LIT: 50 shades in trees is coming up shortly

Alison from Frankton

The Crochet Crew began in 2017 with 45 members sourced from Facebook and Neighbourly who knitted and crocheted a 10 metre by 2.7metre shade sail which hung in the tall pine trees at Hamilton Lake Domain for 5 months.
Later that year, the Pavlova Tree was entered into the Trees at the Meteor,

This year, 7 of the group have crocheted and knitted 50 light shades from acrylic yarn to suspend in the trees in Garden Place during the Fringe Festival, 26 October - 9 November

The light shades will be illuminated at night, and will be for sale at the end of the festival.

Livy from Glenview

Hi neighbours, just wanted to inform everyone there has been a burglary in Glenview & a attempted break in. The only things that were stolen were Christmas presents, keep an extra eye on your home. Hopefully the low lifes are caught.

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.

Are you a recent home buyer? or a retiree in your own home?

The team Reporter from Sunday Star Times

Hi Neighbourly - we're looking for a first-home buyer to talk about why it was their goal to buy a house and the reasons behind it (need to be willing to be pictured with it). We're also looking for a few people 50 years or older to talk about how important owning their own home is to their retirement goals
