Neighbours Day is this weekend

This weekend, thousands of people all around New Zealand will be celebrating Neighbours Day Aotearoa.

From community brunches in Point Chevalier to picnics at marae in Wellington, Kiwis are getting creative in uniting communities and turning strangers into neighbours.

In Hamilton, people can enter a competition to win a meal cooked for them by the Chiefs on Sunday night. In Glen Innes, neighbours are organising food swaps and having street barbeques.

Neighbours Day Aotearoa is a joint initiative from Lifewise, Inspiring Communities, The Mental Health Foundation, and Neighbourhood Support.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
