What do you like best about liv­ing in Mt Roskill?

The di­ver­sity of the people and the ac­cess to any­where else in greater Auck­land. How long have you lived here and where are you orig­i­nally from?

I’ve lived in Mt Roskill for 17 years.

I came to Auck­land from Whanganui in 1966. What do you like least and how can we fix it? The traf­fic. We can fix it by get­ting people out of cars and onto pub­lic trans­port.

Be­lieve it or not, I like to go and help some­one who can’t do a lot for them­selves.

I’m a nurse so I do a lot of work with el­derly res­i­dents. The spot in Cen­tral Auck­land I’d rec­om­mend to tourists is...

The Do­main. It’s beau­ti­ful in there – just lovely.
