Poll: Are you in favour of water bills possibly rising across Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Aucklanders' water bills could more than double over the next decade, rising $1200.

The likely price hike has been linked to the financial impact of Covid-19 and the region’s drought.

Weeded out a lot of moth plant and woolly nightshade this morning. Do you know of any other sites? Help conquer these noxious weeds.

We helped them remove lots of moth plant and woolly nightshade and started on some privet. Hopefully those people prone to asthma and privet allergies will sleep a bit better. We also cleared wild ginger and other weeds from the reserve behind Taurus Cres.
But there's still a lot of moth plant and woolly nightshade - some behind a locked gate. Please email PestPlants@pestfreekaipatiki.org.nz if we missed yours and you need help with it. Get rid of them before the seed mature and spread.
Please email us too if you know of moth plant flowers coming out now - help us control the vines before the nasty pods form.

There's a lot of privet trees around Taurus Cres - we are wondering about a community working bee one weekend in 2021. If you'd be interested please let us know (same email as above). Privet blossom makes some people really miserable - so even if you don't suffer yourself, please get in touch.

For more info about controlling pest plants in your street or your local park, go to www.pestfreekaipatiki.org.nz... - click on the link below to the Forest & Bird Weed Control Guide. Next Monday will be the last hit squad for 2020 - if you can see any big moth plant sites in flower, please email the location to us or report it on the EcoTrack app.

Firefighters rescue kitten from drain in Fairview Heights

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours, a wee kitten stuck down a drain was rescued thanks to efforts by the SPCA and firefighters last week.

It took more than three hours to retrieve the 7-week-old kitten from the drain, which proved tricky to access due to it sloping beneath the curb. Firefighters couldn't get into the drain, so had to create a platform for the kitten, which was eventually coaxed out with some food. The male kitten is now being cared for by the SPCA where he will be desexed and put up for adoption.
