Pest Free Auckland

The Team from Auckland Council

Across the months of May and June, we have been asking Aucklanders to create a Pest-Free haven in their backyard through placing traps, pulling weeds, and planting natives.

To help further support Aucklanders we ran a Q&A session with our Pest Free Auckland experts on Instagram and thought we’d share a summary of the great questions and useful answers to get everyone started on their Pest Free Auckland journey.

Police end physical search for missing French teen Eloi Rolland

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours.
Police say they have exhausted all leads for finding Eloi Rolland, 18, who has been missing from Auckland for almost four months.
The teen, who has limited English, has not been seen since he was captured on CCTV at the Britomart train station on March 7, where he caught a train to New Lynn's Fruitvale Rd station. It's understood he was in the vicinity of Piha Rd and Scenic Drive at 9.18am, but this is where the trail ends.
After more than 1600 hours searching for Rolland, police ended the physical search in May, pending reports of new information or evidence.
Rolland's sister, Aurore Rolland, told Stuff the family were "really sad" the search had been suspended.
"We [are at] the point where we are waiting for a miracle. We believe [he] is not dead in the sea at Piha Beach. Things need to be done, even if we have to search during our entire life."

Nannying Service, Ukulele and Beginner Piano Lessons

Kate from Epsom

Hi there!

My name is Katie and I am the eldest of three kids in a hectic household. I have a current full drivers license and have spent the last twelve months working as an Insurance Specialist. I am very organised and thrive in a high pressure environment - typically working for families with children from ages 2-14.

I was diagnosed with dyslexia when I was in secondary school - so I am compassionate and patient with children who have learning difficulties.
I have been nannying and babysitting since I was fifteen years old, and have taught piano and ukulele to young primary school students. I also volunteered at a primary school in a year 1-2 composite class for one term in 2018.

I am a very patient young woman and feel I have a soft-spot for children who feel as if the world is working against them. Feel free to reach out if you'd like a lending hand or a fun introduction to the world of music.
