Should Auckland Council pay $1.6m for an elephant?

Mandy Te Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours, in 2015 Auckland Council paid $1.6 million to transport an elephant from Sri Lanka to Auckland Zoo. It is now budgeting $1.6m for a second elephant to come to New Zealand. Do we need another elephant? Do you think Council should be spending $1.6m on an elephant?

Or should the money go somewhere else? What are your thoughts on this?

Hi neighbours!
I am a responsible, reliable and very trustworthy nanny/ babysitter. I would love to be of help to any family in need of a babysitter, nanny or mothers helper.
I have a friendly, kind and caring nature and love children! I'm currently Enrolled for a bachelor of social work at the University of Auckland starting next year. The area I'm most interested in is child welfare which is why I feel babysitting/ nanny roles are perfect for me as it gives me a chance to strengthen my knowledge by working with children.
I hold experience in childcare and babysitting and can provide references from families on request. I have a very flexiable schedule, so can be available to work most hours needed (short or long) including additional hours in the school holidays or if children are home sick. I have experience working with busy family's with multiple children, from general supervision, doing homework, making dinner and putting the kids to bed.
I've worked with children from babies to school age and can also be a mothers helper for new or busy mums. I can drive myself, I have my own car and a clean restricted licence. Happy to chat more if you think I could be a good fit for your family.

It’s very disappointing to find out one of my flatmate start working at our local supermarket (NEW WORLD) as checkout operator , they (checkout operator) are not allowed to drink water while they working,
They allowed to drink water only in their breaks .
As I worked in supermarket more than 5 years
And sometimes if it’s busy we can’t take our breaks up to more than 3 hours .
And the more disappointing to hear if anybody keep water bottles with them on checkout the senior staff throw water bottles in rubbish.

I am interested to know your views on the people who serve and assist with your grocery shopping, if they drink few sip of water on checkout would you mind ?
Especially if the work required so much talking
And grocery lifting would you able to perform while you thirsty ?
There argument to stop allowing drink water on checkout is purely stupid I don’t want to go down that path if anybody interested I can provide more details
Thanks

Morning Neighbours,

I know a family that is in need of household items urgently - A family of five - two parents and three children.

Due to personal circumstances they have had to move with literally their clothes on their backs.They are in an emergency house temporarily. The emergency house only has a double mattress so beds are a desperate need!

At the moment I want to focus on the necessities:

-Beds (Mattresses too)
-Fridge/Freezer
-Draws
-Couches
-Dining Table and Chairs
-Linen
-Towels

If anyone has anything to donate it would be much appreciated! They can't afford much, they are barely scraping through to afford food. It breaks my heart seeing families suffer especially when they don't deserve to be in the situation that they are in.

Warm Regards,
Che

Hey neighbours,
Beaches, outdoor dining areas and urban centres will be stamped smokefree from November, under the city's Smokefree Policy.
Auckland Council approved the policy on Tuesday to increase the number of smokefree outdoor spaces.
What do you think? Has this been a long time coming? Are you a smoker who enjoys having a cigarette on the beach or while you're dining outside? Or do you think smoking in the city should be banned altogether?
