Would you like to build your confidence using rat or possum traps? This casual drop-in session on Saturday 22 July from 2.00pm to 4.00pm in the Foyer is for you. Hosted by the Maungawhau Ecological Halo, you will receive a quick refresher, tips for success and some free peanut butter for trapping if you bring a jar! If you reside within the Halo area you can also pick up a free rat trap. The Halo project protects and enhances native biodiversity around Maungawhau Mt Eden and we would love you to join us in intensifying this community predator suppression effort.

Those marvellous volunteer technicians from the Chinese Conservation Education Trust Auckland bring their Repair Café to the Village Centre again on Sunday 23 July from 3.00pm to 6.00pm. They aim to repair your small electrical appliances, furniture, clothing, general items, sewing machine, and computer hardware and software to prevent them going to landfill. The items must be small enough to carry in your hands and one item is accepted first to allow everyone to register. The service is Free (Koha welcome) and please bring your face mask. Like the for regular updates.

We have a Pātaka Kai here outside by the Lounge on Ngāuruhoe Street. A Pātaka Kai is a shared Pantry and Book Exchange – everyone is welcome to take what you need and leave what you can – fresh fruit and vegetables only please.
