Auckland's long-haul bus terminal: should it stay or go?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, If Auckland Transport, and maybe SkyCity had their way, the long-haul bus terminal would be re-located by this year. Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei had no idea that their land was wanted. Does the terminal need a new downtown home? Read the story below:

Have you ever wanted to give Cardmaking/papercrafts a try but don't know where to start?
I cater for experienced or beginners, and we have a lot of fun along the way:-)
My classes are such that you work at your own pace and take home two projects that you will be so impressed that you made yourself!

Your first class is a gold coin donation and you don't need to bring anything but yourself, thereafter it is only $15.00 a class and you bring your own adhesives and snips.

My next class is 7pm Thursday 5th March (a great beginners class)
and
10 am Friday 6th march
in Puhoi.
If you are interested please RSVP before 02 March or even if you have any questions.
I will at that time give you the address etc
My website is www.stampingbess.co.nz......

Harmony Circle – Guest Presenter Sunday 8th March
Lyn Schofield – Bowen Therapist

Venue; Community Hall, 2 Alnwick St (next door to Town Hall), Warkworth.
Open at 6.45pm for a 7pm start. $5 contribution at the door – Harmony Circle is non-profit.

Lyn is passionate about making a difference to people's health and wellbeing. Having experienced the benefits of Bowen Therapy personally, Lyn believes this therapy can help people be the best they can be, in all aspects of their life.

When people feedback to Lyn that they have had the best night's sleep for ages, or smile and move around freer with less pain, that's proof this technique works!
And it's not just for injuries and aliments, a session can re-align the body to lift your sports game, prepare you for a holiday, release that winter sluggishness and help you be all you can be.
What Bowen has taught Lyn is to make time and take care of her wellness - otherwise she realises she would be forced to make time for her illness!
Lyn looks forward to sharing how Bowen Therapy can help you take care of your wellness too.

Attendees will go into a FREE draw on the night for a 1 hour Bowen Therapy Session with Lyn at her home clinic.

Lyn can be contacted on 027 320 1775

Everyone welcome, this is an open group, come along if you can, look forward to seeing you there!

The Team Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours, warm waters around Auckland are attracting tiny jellyfish towards our shores, causing some people to break out in a rash. Have you been affected by these jellyfish this summer?
