Eastern Courier - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

This year’s Neigh­bours Day Aotearoa takes place this week­end, with a lo­cal event be­ing at St An­drews How­ick Pres­by­te­rian Church, cor­ner Vin­cent Street and Ridge Road, from 11am to 1pm on Sun­day, with ac­tiv­i­ties such as face­paint­ing, a bouncy cas­tle, can­dyfloss, and sausage siz­zle. Fol­low­ing this month’s wild weather, Auck­land coun­cil­lor Sharon Ste­wart says Neigh­bours Day is a great chance to get to know other lo­cal res­i­dents, and in case of an emer­gency. ’’When dis­as­ters hap­pen, neigh­bour­hoods can get cut off and you may find your­self hav­ing to rely on the peo­ple around you to sur­vive. The last fort­night has driven this home for us all.’’
