Dear neighbours,

Please meet Alyce Read of Nelson, who uses her houseplant collection to connect with others and help them overcome mental health challenges. "You wouldn’t take a plant and put it in a dark corner and fail to water it and expect it to thrive. So we should look at ourselves that way," she says. "If we are not thriving in the way that we would wish, it might not be any fault of ours, it might be the conditions that we are under."

Random Acts of Kindness – August 1st to 31st 💐

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From giving flowers to a neighbour ‘just because’ to paying it forward in line at a cafe - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From giving flowers to a neighbour ‘just because’ to paying it forward in line at a cafe - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, build a free community library for your street, buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food bank, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re spreading kindness this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to:

Oceania has always believed in better and so does Meadowbank’s new Care Manager, Suzette Vorster.

Having worked in Aged Care for several years, Suzette’s favourite thing about her work has remained the same – giving back to those who’ve done so much for Aotearoa.

“Our residents have a lifetime of knowledge and have worked hard in often difficult times. I see it as such a privilege to be in a position to lead a team of people who are passionate about caring for them.”

Suzette’s recipe for great care is simple. “Great care means meeting a resident’s daily needs with empathy and warmth – to deliver the kind of care that anyone would want their Mum or Dad to have.”

She’s excited to take on a new challenge in our vibrant village beside Orakei Basin.

“Meadowbank is a beautiful site– it’s a place anyone would feel proud to live in and a place families enjoy visiting. Our Care Suites provide a feeling of independence within the comfort and security of exceptional 24/7, round-the-clock care.” And her vision for Meadowbank goes beyond brick and mortar.

“The heart of it is the people – staff who provide empathy and love, and residents who live their years to the fullest.”

To learn more about our Care Suites with Rest Home and Hospital level care, get in touch with Suzette today.

Kia ora koutou.

Almost 4700 people received a Covid-19 vaccine at New Zealand’s first mass vaccination event on Friday.

At least 11,500 people are expected to get their first doses of the Pfizer vaccine at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau over the weekend.

The events centre is set up with 242 vaccination booths which are tended to by 12 vaccinators each day of the event.

The event will run from 9am to 7.30pm on Saturday and 9am to 8pm on Sunday and is by appointment only.

People are asked to arrive at the time of their appointment, so they can register quickly to help manage demand.

People cannot go directly to the Vodafone Events Centre on the day, unless they have a disability parking sticker. Everyone else should go to the Manukau Institute of Technology campus and travel to the events centre via the shuttle buses provided.

Another mass vaccination event will be held in six weeks for second doses.

Hey neighbours,

Restaurant Month is back for another year, set to bolster the Auckland culinary scene by offering discounted dishes and unique events for the entire month of August.

Gastronomes can expect 31 days of specially curated menus at the value-for-money price points of $25, $40 or $55+.

Restaurants included span those from the waterfront to the CBD, and from stalwarts such as Euro, Botswana Butchery and Odettes​ Eatery, to the newcomers and the underdogs.

Viv Beck, Heart of the City chief executive, said this year’s lineup is “more world-class than ever” thanks to the “inspiring lineup of chefs”, some of whom have recently returned to Auckland from stints overseas.
