We also chat with Dr Doug Wilson, 2021 Senior New Zealander of the Year Te Mātāpuputu o te Tau, and Andrea Gaskin, Director and Founder of charity organisation Connect the Dots, about how she’s making the art scene in Auckland accessible to seniors.

There’s advice on how to eat healthy, how to get tech savvy, and updated laws for renters and landlords.

Another Unnecessary closure

Noel from South Taranaki District

Taranaki Star June 10. AA to close Hawera Office. Business to be transferred to the i-site run by the Council.

What was NOT printed in the newspaper was that the HO of AA are making 4 staff redundant. Closing the current office because they claim the building is not fit for purpose. Hold on - they have used the building since 1950's. Something clearly is wrong here. How many more corporate businesses are going to carry out the same thing and reduce country towns to ghost towns. Banks make huge profits but dont give a s--- about staff or customers. The Council staff endeavour to attract new business and end up getting a church owned business which will be registered as a non profit organisation so pay NO TAX. People we have to speak up loudly and stop the rot.

NZTA licence renewal scam circulating

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

A new email scam impersonating the NZTA is being sent around telling vehicle owners their licences are due.

The email directs the recipient to renew the funds through clicking a 'Renew Now' button at the bottom corner of the email. It then takes the individual to fake website that gets them to fill in personal details.

CERT NZ, the government authority responsible for cyber security said in a tweet, that anyone who receives this email should report it directly to Waka Kotahi (NZTA).

How to spot a phishing scam:
- NZTA will only send an email through if an individual has contacted them first.
- Email addresses will always end in @nzta.govt.nz, @enews.nzta.govt.nz or @reply.nzta.govt.nz.
- The email may be missing specific details that the NZTA will have on file: such as your plate number, the date your vehicle license is due and vehicle make and model.
- Hover over buttons and links to see if the pop-up will take you to a genuine government (.govt.nz) website

Neighbourly will update this message as further information comes to hand.

An appallingy bad decision for a film to be made on the effects of the Christchurch Shooting.

Vernon Neighbourly Lead from Whanganui

The Muslim community did not want the "commemoration" in 2020 of that event to occur as it was not their way, yet that happened.

The Muslim community did not want the "commemoration" in 2020 of that event to occur as it was not their way, yet that happened.
Again it happened in a smaller way this year.
Now there is an intention to make a film about the effects , which again the Muslim Community have clearly said they do not want to happen.
Here is a link and your opportunity to sign a petition showing your support for the Muslim Community in defeating the intentions of those who would profit from making such a film.
