Auckland Transport suffered a 30 minute train suspension across the network due to a KiwiRail signalling fault yesterday. It was the second time in a week that trains were non-operational, network wide. Auckland Mayor Phil Goff said the delays were "not good enough". He asked KiwiRail if its infrastructure was fit for purpose. KiwiRail has promised an independent review into the recent signal faults.

Around the world, communities, schools, businesses, groups and people from all walks of life are taking big and small steps in solidarity with refugees. This World Refugee Day, we challenge everyone in New Zealand to join together and take a step to make a difference.

You can take part in the #StepWithRefugees campaign, where participants will collectively walk, run and cycle 1 billion miles - the distance refugees cover each year to reach safety, by adding your steps here: stepwithrefugees.org...

Another option is to volunteer with the New Zealand Red Cross as a Refugee Support Volunteer. Volunteers help families start again, while teaching them about New Zealand culture and connecting them with people from the community.

For anyone based in the Wairarapa, Masterton Neighbourhood Support has a programme called 'WeConnect' that matches new residents from diverse backgrounds including refugees to a local buddy. If you're interested in volunteering or supporting the programme in other ways you can email Masterton Neighbourhood Support Area Coordinator, Cathy Cameron, at: cathy@connectingcommunities.org.nz

It's fantastic that the long-awaited new toilet being installed at Monarch Park in Hillcrest, and the new entrance sign and directional bollards :)
It wasn't long ago that this was a hidden park, and I remember stumbling upon it when I was a kid and not being able to find it again! But work over the last couple of years has widened and enhanced the main Moore Street entrance, and the new sign with map will ensure that this park is no longer hidden!
This park has a lot to offer and is treasured by the local Monarch Park Place Making Project group, who have worked with the Kaipatiki Local Board on ideas and improvements for the park. There are lots of things for children to find in this park, including a natural play area, resident fairy, little library, mosaic tiles, ornaments, and there are future plans for a nature trail.
A big thanks to Project Manager Julie Crabb for pushing the toilet and signage through for the Local Board. And also thanks also to contractors Zac and Dave who have been out installing these and the new signs at Shepherds Park.

Note: Photos from 10 May.
