Justine from The Brook


For the last few weeks we have reverted back to the smaller van style ebus in our narrow winding Brook Valley. I cannot stress enough what a difference it has made to no longer have the huge 30 seater giants trundling up and down our peaceful valley.
No longer does my home shake and shudder as they go past half hourly. No longer is the narrow winding road up the valley congested by these buses immense size and their inability to manoeuvre round tight corners, bridges, etc. No longer do I shake my head as I see yet another huge empty bus go past and know that my hard earned rates are propping up this folly,
Surely these last weeks are proof in itself- the smaller style van bus serves out community perfectly well and does not (and never did) need changing! If a 12 seater Is not being filled to capacity then why waste money on running a 30 seater ? Surely this is not just financial sense but also common sense? I would love to hear your thoughts 😊

Do you volunteer or know someone who does?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

It's NZ Volunteer Week (16-22 June) and we know there are real good sorts in your community.

Often these kind acts and regular volunteering efforts go unnoticed but let's put a stop to that.

Let us know below who is making a difference in your neighbourhood so we can all appreciate them for the great work that they do!
