Hi neighbours,
We just joined the Neighbourly community and we would like to introduce ourselves…

We are Paul and Lee Brumby and we are the Exceed we fix windows & doors franchise owners for Takapuna, Waitakere North and surrounding areas.

We offer reliable and guaranteed window & door repairs and we can help you fix:

- Stiff, jamming sliding doors and rollers that are heavy and don't like to slide.
- Windows that swing fully open and cannot be reached to close again.
- Broken window latches, handles.
- Draughty homes where heat escapes from gaps around doors and windows.
- Old locks on windows or doors that stick and jam.

As well as helping you keep your home in good shape by fixing problem doors & windows, we can install retractable insect screens and security doors to keep your home and family safe.

When you book a visit with us, we’ll arrive on time (or phone you if we are unavoidably delayed). Our vans are fully-equipped, so we won’t need to rush off to get parts. We’ll take care in your home, wear protective shoe covers and promise to clean up before we leave. We wear photographic ID and have been security profiled for your peace of mind.

Poll: Are you in favour of the new cycleway being trialled in Auckland's CBD?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Cyclists will have additional spots to lock up their bikes with new facilities installed as part of a cycleway trial.

Project WAVE is a $1 million cycleway trial in the Viaduct Harbour to connect the Quay and Nelson Street cycleways that could have over a thousand daily users.

Auckland Transport (AT) confirmed two new bike parking facilities able to accommodate 16 bikes have been installed as part of the trial, taking the total number of bike parks along the cycleway to 56.

The project is opposed by a group of residents and business owners.

The two new bike parking facilities are located on Customs Street West between Market Place and Lower Hobson Street. One is located near the Tepid Baths, and one is near O’Hagan’s bar.

The area now has enough space for around 56 bikes, as there were already existing facilities to accommodate 40 bikes before Project WAVE was implemented.

AT spokeswoman Natalie Polley said there are also numerous new bike parking facilities on Quay Street and in the new square as part of the Downtown project.

"That doesn’t even take into account bike parking at the ferry terminal, the AT Downtown Carpark and at many other locations on the Viaduct,” she said.

1st Auckland Cavell Guide Unit Set to Celebrate Centenary

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Did you use to belong to the 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit?

If so, the brigade wants to hear from you!

The 1st Auckland Cavell Girl Guide Unit turns 100 in July and is still seeking old girls to join the celebrations.

One of the first girl guide units to be formed in Auckland, the group is gearing up to commemorate its centenary.

A social afternoon is planned for July 3, kicking off at 2pm with historic guiding activities such as knot tying and making arm slings.

Guests will be treated to afternoon tea and a birthday cake before photographs are taken of the girls.

The day will end with a singalong around the campfire.

The next day, a church parade will march through St Andrews Church, Epsom, where the unit has been meeting since 1921.

Parishioners are invited to a morning tea after the procession.

The unit, initially known as the St Andrew's Peace Scout Group, is believed to be the first guide company which has kept going since it was launched.

It all started when eighteen-year-old Mona Burgin wrote to the Dominion chief scout Colonel Cosgrove, a New Zealand Boer War veteran, asking about Girl Peace Scouts.

He arranged to meet her in Queen St, Auckland and wrote she would recognize him by the red flower in his buttonhole.

Soon after the meeting Burgin formed the troop on July 6.

Girl Peace Scouts wore khaki uniforms and the St Andrews troop wore a red open-ended tie.

In 1923, the Dominion Council became affiliated with the original Girls Guides Association in London.

*Former unit members can email cavellgirlguidesnz@gmail.com for details of the centenary.
