Mobile vaccination buses will be rolled out in Auckland from Thursday, in the style of Mr Whippy ice cream vans.

A similar initiative was launched in Australia at the start of the month, and buses became known as “Jabba the Bus”.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has challenged the public to come up with a better name, but has ruled out “Busey McBusface”.

What do you think the vaccination buses should be called?

On Tuesday, it welcomed three young lionesses from Australia.
The zoo said twin sisters Aziza and Kibibi and half-sister Ilola – all four years old – have come from Werribee Open Range Zoo in Melbourne, Victoria.
Auckland Zoo is currently closed because of Covid-19 alert level 4, but once it reopens, the lions will be ready and waiting to see visitors.
Will you be booking in a visit to the zoo to see these new lions once restrictions ease?

Auckland’s city business district has lost $80 million over the latest lockdown.

Heart of the City chief executive Viv Beck is calling on the government to consider ‘Covid Loans’.

“We’re keen to see innovative ideas to support businesses and not load the country up with more debt than necessary,” she said.

“Many people have told us they have not had good access to capital and ‘Covid Loans’ could be a solution that could be implemented using existing arrangements.”

’Covid Loans’ would allow businesses to access funding with much more manageable repayment options, similar to student loans,

Do you support ‘Covid Loans’ for businesses impacted by the lockdown?

I put this up a couple of weeks ago, I hope no one minds if I post it again

Colleen Ellis from Onehunga

As we've been walking/driving around our neighbourhood there are a number of citrus ( oranges, lemons & grapefruit) laden trees shedding all over the ground. This of course occurs every year but we're mainly home at the moment. How about if you have a tree , especially the oranges, you could pick and either bag them "free fruit help yourself" outside your front fence or maybe contact a local food bank to drop them off at their base. Perhaps if your neighbour has a tree you could ask if you could carefully pick and bag them etc for those who would welcome them. As we know some people are doing it hard and it just seems a terrible shame to watch the fruit rot on the ground.
