Are you giving up something for Lent?

Josephine Franks Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Kia ora neighbours, Stuff is looking to speak with Aucklanders who are giving up something for Lent.

Perhaps you quit chocolate for 40 days every year, or you've decided to give up plastic for environmental reasons. If you'd be willing to talk to a reporter, please email josephine.franks@stuff.co.nz

Please add NFP if you don't want your comments published.

Join us for lunch and some new ideas

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how are you finding life in lockdown? If you're looking for new ways to mix things up at home and in the garden, we can help!

Join us for a virtual lunch from 12.30 today (8 April), when NZ House & Garden and NZ Gardener editors Naomi Larkin and Jo McCarroll will be live on Homed to answer your questions, share their expertise and chat about your latest projects.

From repurposing items you already have to create a stylish new interior, to getting a steer on what you can sow and grow in the garden right now, here's your chance to get help and advice from those in the know.

And if you've already finished some home and garden projects during lockdown, don't be shy... show us what you've done. We'd love to see them! Click here and get in early to submit your questions and join in the fun. You can also email photos of your projects to: homed@stuff.co.nz.

Noise - be considerate

Penelope from Three Kings

Hello Neighbours,

Majority of the workforce like us who are still trying to operate are working from home, and are struggling to do so. Just a humble request to all. Let’s be considerate about the noise we make. People are trying to get work done, and it does not help if you mow the lawns, use your leaf blower, play the flute or other instrument, or generally make a lot of noise.

Let’s all avoid doing this during office hours please.

Thank you! Stay safe and Be kind.

Regards,
Your neighbours will thank you for this.

Where to find your favourite Hot Cross Buns in lockdown?

Catrin Owen Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Who loves Hot Cross Buns? Nothing beats the smell of a freshly toasted hot cross bun, but as Easter this year will be spent in coronavirus lockdown and your favourite bakery or cafe is closed, we've put together a list of some of the best spices buns you can find or if you're feeling adventurous why not make them.
My personal favourites are from Daily Bread. What's your favourite thing about Easter?
