Sections in Donegal Glen offer purchasers a special opportunity to investment in a family focused neighbourhood, only a short drive to Auckland International Airport.

On Friday 6th September the Acacia Cove residents were spoilt with a visit from the Manukau Youth Jazz Orchestra. What a treat it was!

These kids, aged between 13 and 15, are talented beyond belief and it was amazing to see them in action. Not only are they very good at playing various instruments, there were a few amazing vocal performances too.

Both our Residents and our Manager, Bruce Cullington was very impressed. Well done to Musical Director Joseph Allan and thank you for bringing the kids to Acacia Cove.

We would love to see them again.

From 1st October 2019, the Manukau East Patient Transport Service (provided by MECOSS and Howick and Pakuranga Shuttles), will no longer provide transport services for patients.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

1). St John Health Shuttle service
The St John Health Shuttle is expected to commence from early 2020 to provide a similar service in this area. The service will be free (koha/donations are welcome) and staffed with reliable, fully-trained drivers that will pick patients up, take them to their appointment, and drop them home safely again. For more information about the St John Health Shuttle, call toll free on 0800 9252 672 (0800 WAKA ORA).

3. Private Providers
There are a number of private transport providers operating in East Auckland, such as Driving Miss Daisy (0800 948 432) and Freedom Drivers (0800 956 956). These services are ACC registered vendors and price is quoted on the requirements of each individual journey.
Dependent on your individual circumstances, you may be eligible for additional support:
a). Total Mobility Scheme
The Total Mobility scheme operated by Auckland Transport, helps people with serious mobility constraints access subsidised door-to-door transport service. The scheme offers eligible registered individuals a 50% discount (up to a maximum of $40), on fares charged by contracted taxi providers in the Auckland region. For more information, please call Auckland Transport on 09 366 6400 or visit at.govt.nz...…/accessible-trav…/total-mobility-scheme/.
