Time to Celebrate Neighbours

Takapuna Methodist Church from Takapuna Methodist Church

Takapuna Methodist Church is celebrating 10 years of Neighbours Day by holding two free Neighbourhood Sausage Sizzles from 8:30 till 12:30, Sunday 24th and 31st March. 427 Lake Road, Takapuna.
About Neighbour's Day ( neighboursday.org.nz... ):

Tasked by Lifewise and Takapuna Methodist Church to find new and innovative ways to support local neighbourhoods, Rebecca Harrington – passionate community advocate – came across the following finding: many people today recognise they are isolated from their neighbours, yet are unsure what to do about it. After hearing that planned neighbourhood celebrations were becoming commonplace worldwide, Rebecca sought to establish a similar annual campaign in New Zealand, now celebrated annually as Neighbours Day Aotearoa. Initially launched by Lifewise in Auckland in 2009, Neighbours Day Aotearoa became a nationwide initiative and campaign in 2011.

Missing French teen Eloi Rolland: Friends and family still have no answers a year on

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

In 2019, French teenager Eloi Rolland arrived in New Zealand to study. He partied, got a job and made friends. But six months later he disappeared without a trace. A year on, police say “his fate remains unknown” and his case looks set to be referred to the coroner. Caroline Williams reports.

During his time in Auckland, Rolland went to the zoo, enjoyed nights out, worked at a popular bar, dabbled in modelling and, with friends, visited Piha on the rugged west coast.

Before his disappearance, Rolland expressed to his family that he wished to visit Piha again, and on March 6 last year, he did just that.

He has not been seen or heard from since.

“Each day we feel more and more worried and more helpless," his father Thierry Rolland tells Stuff.
