This month is all about bringing your community together and having a great time! We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.
A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 20 - 30th March. This year’s theme is ‘The Great Plant Swap’ - as an easy way for our neighbourhoods to grow stronger together. If you’re hosting an event, make sure to register it on their website: neighboursday.org.nz/join-in
Show us how you’re celebrating community this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: firstname.lastname@example.org

MetService has lifted the warning for Bay of Plenty and widespread heavy rain for much of the North Island has passed.
There is the potential for flash flooding and damage to property tonight as a severe weather system passes through the Bay of Plenty region.
In a statement, MetService said that there was a chance of peak rates of 20mm to 30mm of rainfall per hour with thunderstorms possible from the deep low-pressure system.
Motorists are asked to exercise caution and drive to the conditions as visibility may be reduced.
The remainder of the North Island should be covered by heavy falls by early Wednesday as the low moves southeast over New Zealand.
