Some of us also go to the Senior's Sneak Peak Movies on Wednesday morning at Brooklyn Penthouse, meeting for a coffee before we see the movie. There is also the occasional outing etc. This is not a "formalised " club but just a way of meeting and connecting with other women in the community with a view to making "closer" friendships. We keep in touch by email on a weekly basis and welcome those who would like to join us. Please contact Miriam, initially through neighbourly if you are interested in joining us.

The front passenger window was smashed with a rock that was found on the set of the car. A bank debit card and a packet of tobacco were taken from the middle console. A silver Holden Equinox stationwagon parked overnight in the driveway of a house had its front passenger window smashed to gain entry. A wallet was taken from the centre console. The wallet contained a driver’s licence and a bank card. The card was used fraudulently seven times to make purchases from service stations and on-line purchases. A silver Toyota Corolla stationwagon was entered during the early afternoon while left briefly unlocked outside a shop in Johnsonville Road. The driver was in the process of loading and unloading equipment at a work site. A power tool was stolen from the boot.

In Newlands a house under renovation in was broken into overnight while the owners were away. All window frames bear jemmy marks and significant damage was done in an attempt to force an entry. The burglar finally succeeded in gaining entry by forcing a rear wooden door. A search had been made throughout the interior and a list of property stolen is being compiled. Another forced entry was made at this house within 48 hours. The intruder forced open the rear door that had been patched up following the first forced entry.

CCTV footage has recorded that a white Honda Odyssey drove up and a hooded male passenger got out and walked up the house and took the packages. The footage has been passed to Police.

In Karori a house under construction was entered during the night when burglars applied considerable force to break in the front door which is now beyond repair. Power tools were stolen.

Our can collection initiative 'Cans for Good' with Wattie's is back for 2019 and we'd love you to get involved! The campaign will run for two weeks between Monday 5th and Friday 16th August and registration is open to all schools from kindergarten to high schools.

Our can collection initiative 'Cans for Good' with Wattie's is back for 2019 and we'd love you to get involved! The campaign will run for two weeks between Monday 5th and Friday 16th August and registration is open to all schools from kindergarten to high schools.

*What is Cans for Good?*
Cans for Good is an exciting national education and can collection campaign. Last year, Cans for Good was a huge success - more than 240 schools took part, collecting more than 70,000 cans to fill Salvation Army foodbanks.
The campaign brings together a charitable can collection drive and creative competition. It's supported by a set of teacher resources designed to engage children in fun, team-based learning experiences. The resources are available to download for free when you register online.

*Prizes*
As well as doing good in your community, having fun and learning, your school can also win some great prizes! Along with a competition for the best can creation, we have introduced a fun new campaign where your students can show or tell us how they think Wattie’s Spaghetti is made. We'll pick the most creative entry from each category: Kindergarten, Primary/Intermediate and Secondary School. The overall winner will receive a Wattie’s lunch shout for their school!

*Register today!*
Since the Watties partnership began in 1994, more than 1.4 million cans have been donated and this year through the support of New Zealand schools participating in Cans for Good we hope to achieve our target of 1.5 million cans!
Cans from each school will be given to the local Salvation Army or community foodbanks. These will help refill the shelves after the high winter demand period and enable schools around New Zealand to make a real difference to those in need in their community. To take part, register online by 31st July.

Mandala Art Prints

Hi Everyone,

Here are just a few of the many art prints I have for sale. These are sized 8" by 10" (or 8" by 8" if preferred). The original art work is on the right, edited prints on the left. Right now I am selling my pencil art prints for $30 via Neighbourly ($40 for the … View more
Hi Everyone,

Here are just a few of the many art prints I have for sale. These are sized 8" by 10" (or 8" by 8" if preferred). The original art work is on the right, edited prints on the left. Right now I am selling my pencil art prints for $30 via Neighbourly ($40 for the last one which was acrylic on canvas). Prices may go up to $35 ($45 for the painting) in the near future.

Please note that I have reduced the quality of these images in order to help protect my work. The prints will come out better in real life 🙂. I can shrink the mandalas to leave a white border around the edges if you prefer. I will be shrinking the blue mandala regardless to ensure that the edges aren't cut off as much (unless you'd rather I don't). I can also make your print less vibrant to make it a closer match to the original if you prefer.

11" by 14" (or 11" by 11") costs $40 per print ($50 for the painting). If you would like to see more of my mandalas feel free to DM me. I will add a new listing of my latest works every month. Mandala cards with home made envelopes are coming soon!

Commissioned work is available on request. Please contact me to discuss further.

Kind Regards,

Heidi
