Hey neighbours,

Restaurant Month is back for another year, set to bolster the Auckland culinary scene by offering discounted dishes and unique events for the entire month of August.

Gastronomes can expect 31 days of specially curated menus at the value-for-money price points of $25, $40 or $55+.

Restaurants included span those from the waterfront to the CBD, and from stalwarts such as Euro, Botswana Butchery and Odettes​ Eatery, to the newcomers and the underdogs.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City chief executive, said this year’s lineup is “more world-class than ever” thanks to the “inspiring lineup of chefs”, some of whom have recently returned to Auckland from stints overseas.

For the full story, see below.

Two areas of significant interest for our community will be the high and medium density residential zones. We’re proposing to dramatically increase the level of intensification across the city.

Waikanae Recycling Centre Closure
Dear Supporters,
We invite you to join us on Thursday 29th July at the Kapiti Coast District Council meeting, starting at 9.30. in the council chambers. At this meeting the petition asking for the Waikanae recycling centre to be retained will be presented. Now close to 1000 signatures, this is a strong indicator of the depth of feeling regarding the closure within the district. If you haven’t yet signed there is still time to do so. There is a link to the petition on Neighbourly. I will also speak to the council at this meeting, highlighting three key areas of concern. We believe a strong presence in the gallery at this council meeting is needed, to send a message to council that we do not accept this closure. We hope to see you there.
In addition, we will be staging a protest against the closure outside the council building at 10.00 am on Friday 30th July. Please come along, bring a placard and a good strong voice. We hope to have the media there also.

Claims that Covid Vacs are associated with Prion Disease Debunked

USA today investigated this and called on a number of reputable agencies and specialists to comment. They all said the same thing. There are no reports of prion disease following vaccination and the claims are false. They added that Classen simply has not provided any standard of proof and the paper was criticised for its lack of rigor, not peer reviewed and published in a journal that does not have a high degree of scientific credibility. To the non-specialist however, his paper looks credible, so here's the reference to the USA today article and references you can check out.
