Finally a reason to visit Whangārei's CBD

Oliver Neighbourly Lead from One Tree Point

I admit that I'm not a big fan of Whangārei's CBD. There are way, way too many cars around, particularly on the Bank St - Walton St - Dent St triangle, and it's no fun sitting under the canopy and watching on average four cars per minute crawling and dieseling through the Laneway in search of a car park. But now there's a good reason that trumps all that, and that's Bocky Boo Gelato. Finally a gelateria with home-made ice cream in town, no need to drive to Matakana anymore. And they're located at the corner of Quality Street, which is kind of what the whole CBD should look like - pedestrian-friendly and car-free.
Please, neighbours, eat more really good ice cream and visit Bocky Boo Gelato. They must not go bust!

Saving a bird

Glen from Central Whangarei

Just a nice story yesterday I was putting my car away into my double garage, it was hot in the garage I reversed in got out of the car and saw a baby thrush at the rear window of the garage.

So started a ten-minute struggle to try to save the thrush as it flies from window to window, I talked to it good boy I was saying. after ten minutes it flew straight at me.

It landed on my shoulder I walked or hobbled outside the bird stayed on my shoulder I picked it off my shoulder gave it a bowl of water. It drank water and after another ten minutes, it flew off. So good😁

What did you do with your Christmas tree?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

The big cats at Kamo Wildlife Sanctuary have been rubbing against, chewing up and lying on old Christmas trees donated to the park. Is there a better way to use Christmas trees after the big day? What did you do with your Christmas tree?
