Hi Auckland neighbours,

Check out this story by Ripu Bhatia:

Police are seeking an alcohol ban in a bid to prevent possible incidents of disorder near an upcoming music festival featuring Benee and Fat Freddy's Drop.

Waitematā Local Board will vote next Tuesday on whether to adopt a temporary alcohol ban for the Outerfields 2021 festival held at Western Springs Stadium on March 6.

Auckland City District Police senior sergeant Geoff Medland wrote to Auckland Council chief executive officer Jim Stabback on January 21 requesting the ban, which would apply to areas surrounding the venue, rather than at the venue itself.

Where did all the waterbeds go?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Did you have - or do you still have - a Waterbed? I hunted high and low for someone who still used one of the originals, but couldn't find a soul who'd own up to it.
What do you think about these wonderfully kitsch pieces of retro bedroom decor?

Hi neighbours,

Are you worried about suspicious moles on your skin?

You can have them checked for free at Melanoma New Zealand's new spot check van.

The vehicle will park at five of The Warehouse stores in Auckland later this month.

A qualified melanoma nurse educator will be there.

Melanoma New Zealand chief executive Andrea Newland said New Zealand had the worst rate of melanoma in the world.

More than 4000 Kiwis are diagnosed each year with melanoma and more than 300 will die from it, she said.

"More people are dying from skin cancer in New Zealand than on our roads," she said.

"Melanoma is the most dangerous skin cancer but the good news is that if it is caught and treated early enough, it is almost always curable."

If you want to have a spot check, you need to fill out a registration form on the day for limited spaces.

Melanoma New Zealand also recommends getting thorough and regular full body skin examinations rather than relying on spot checks alone.

This month, The Warehouse stores are fundraising for Melanoma New Zealand by selling reusable bags at checkouts.

All proceeds from the sacks will go towards the organisation's work.

Free spot checks will be held at:

The Warehouse in Lunn Ave, Mount Wellington on February 20 from 10am to 3pm, at The Warehouse Silverdale on February 21 from 10am to 12pm, The Warehouse Snells Beach on February 21 from 2 pm to 5pm, The Warehouse Royal Oak on February 27 from 10am to 12 pm and The Warehouse Mt Roskill on February 27 from 1.30 pm to 3.30 pm.

Are you going to get a free spot check?

Do you have bunions and think that surgery is the only answer?

Corrective Foot Solutions

Bunions affect 1 in 3 New Zealanders they can lead to pain and discomfort, which affects mobility, balance and quality of life. That’s not to mention the look of them and the difficulty of fitting shoes.

Bunions affect 1 in 3 New Zealanders they can lead to pain and discomfort, which affects mobility, balance and quality of life. That’s not to mention the look of them and the difficulty of fitting shoes.

We’ve decided to run a special offer for people with bunions - “Bunion Evaluation” for only $33 (worth $85). Offer valid 12/02/21 - 12/03/21

Many doctors and podiatrists believe that surgery is the only way to fix a bunion. This is not true. Bunion surgery is painful and doesn’t address the underlying cause of a bunion, which is generally the way we walk and stand. Ideally, surgery should be considered as the last treatment option for bunions.

At Corrective Foot Solutions, we use a gentle, hands-on technique to effectively treat and correct bunions – which means there’s no need for surgery or orthotics. We use Foot Mobilisation Therapy to correct the underlying cause of your bunion by working on the misalignments in the foot, as well as strengthening the weakened muscles around the joints.

Pop in and see us at 272 level 3b Parnell Rd, Parnell, Auckland or give us a call on 092129250.

Hi Auckland,

What do you think about the newly announced festival on Motutapu?

Island Time on Motutapu is a festival to be held over the last weekend in February and is set to feature a smorgasbord of food and drink vendors and music artists.

Festival-goers will be treated to a day long festival on either February 27 or 28 on the island. Tickets range from between $65 to $85, with a portion of ticket sales going towards to wildlife conservation.

Billy Brown, the deputy chairman of Ngāi Tai Ki Tamaki, said that it is an excellent opportunity to showcase the culture of the island and for them to educate visitors about volunteer opportunities on Motutapu.
“In the end, we want a calendar of events on the island, covering sports, arts, food – all of it," he said.
