Having had it tough in this level 3/4 lockdown, it would be amazing if you could support this local business. I highly recommend their seeded loaf, although their pizza bases and seeded rolls are fantastic too! gluffie.co.nz

Found cat

Heather from Mount Eden

Hi everyone. Does anyone know this cat or know of someone who owns one like him/her? We are in Prospect Terrace, Mount Eden and he's made himself at home in our garden and I've been feeding him (much to the disgust of our own cat). We think he's quite young, but he/she's … View moreHi everyone. Does anyone know this cat or know of someone who owns one like him/her? We are in Prospect Terrace, Mount Eden and he's made himself at home in our garden and I've been feeding him (much to the disgust of our own cat). We think he's quite young, but he/she's pretty big and friendly so we don't think he's a stray. Sex is undetermined and there's no collar. I'd quite like to stop encouraging him by feeding him as our elderly cat is not happy at all but I don't want to stop this if this is the only food he gets. If you think you know of this cat, please either reply here or text me on 027 329 6699. Thanks, Heather

Hi neighbours,

An exciting way to stay active during the Covid-19 lockdown, explore Auckland and win prizes has arrived in the form of the Street Art Bike Challenge.

To participate people simple need to snap a photo of themselves, their bike, a piece of street art, and share the photo with the hashtag #streetartbikechallenge.

The event will run throughout October and aims to encourage people to cycle around the city and stay active throughout the Covid-19 lockdown.

It is being hosted by EcoMatters Bike Hubs, who have compiled a map of over 200 street art pieces around Auckland to get people started.

Over $1000 worth in prizes are up for grabs. Will you be participating in the Street Art Bike Challenge?
