One way to take part is by joining or setting up a Neighbourhood Support group on your street.

Our Coordinator at Hastings District Council recently sent us this snap from a get together with residents from a new suburb who are keen to get Neighbourhood Support up and running.

To gauge interest, he hosted a free barbecue at a park with the support of their local New Zealand Police to bring neighbours together to discuss setting it up. Every group is different in how it chooses to operate. Our policy is whatever works best for your area!

Wayne jack: Where do I start, salary package of 360K per annum, millions of dollars rate payers funds on your "Think Big" projects that have failed. Spying on your councillors that opposed your new pool complex plan.
Elected in by our council in 2013, then 2017 your 5 year contract ended and due to any competition you were appointed for another 5 year contract and now I read in the media you are being proposed a $1000,000 payout to terminate your contract early.
It has been a win win for you at our expense and what an absolute joke you should be entitled to any such payout. I don't care about the clauses in your contract, and if any clauses should be considered what about the clause of "Serious misconduct".
The council is holding a closed meeting tomorrow to discuss this matter and apparently it is a closed meeting due to the fact it is an "Employer-Employee" matter. As ratepayers surely we are the "EMPLOYER" are we not? Why are we not entitled to know what will be discussed and what monetary figure it is going to cost us to get rid of you?
I will be glad to see the back of you to be honest as you stated in 2013...… "I look forward to working for my community". Also a joke.
Dirty Water, Infrastructure failures and nose in the public funded trough for way to long .
I will be following this with great interest as once again, decisions will be made, ratepayers funds will be paid to you Mr Jack with out any consultation apart from what goes on behind closed doors and the real funny part is.. we teach our kids, its ok to make mistakes so long as lessons are learnt along the way but in this case nothing will be learnt and we will make the same mistakes all over again. I don't mean to come across negative but one thing I have learnt is whether it be local or central governments … Its a free for all.

Yee Ha,
Finally, at last our Napier City Council CEO , Wayne Jack has resigned , who cares at what cost at least this idiot is out the door. What a fantastic way to start the week off . I am ecstatic. The best news I have heard in a while. Good luck to his next employers as they will need it, they better make sure they hide their Facebook posts from this "JOKER".
Hide their open cheque books and monitor him closely as these were failures of the previous Napier City council.
I am jumping for joy and just really cant believe it.
A big thank you to you Wayne Jack for actually resigning as a rate payer I really appreciate it.
Hopefully the "NCC", will be a bit more cautious before employing our next CEO.

We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.

A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 27 March - 5 April. This year’s theme is ‘Small Things Make a Big Difference’ - we couldn’t agree more!

Let us know how you’re celebrating by email or tag us online and include the following hashtag:

We are helping a 17 yr old young man get his feet under him. He has enrolled at EIT in a diesel mechanic's course and needs safety boots. We are covering his board for now but are looking for some generous soles (Dad joke attempt at humour) to help in other areas like this.

If you have a pair in good shape, own/manage a safety store that would sponsor/support youth education by donating a pair (or several for other kids in the same situation), or have contacts that could help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
