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?

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

Waitematā Local Board member Sarah Trotman last week resigned her position on the board, providing her resignation in a letter to Chief Executive Jim Stabback on 9 October 2021.

Board chair Richard Northey acknowledges Ms Trotman’s resignation and her contribution to the board for the last two years.

“Sarah did some great work with local businesses in her economic development portfolio, particularly in helping them access mentoring and advice during the first COVID-19 lockdown last year.

“She has also represented her constituency with passion throughout our board’s planning and decision-making processes.

“We respect Sarah’s decision to resign from the board and wish her well in her future endeavours.”

The implications of Ms Trotman’s departure, including whether the vacancy left by her departure will be filled, will be decided by the board at its meeting on Tuesday 19 October.
