Grey Lynn News - Auckland water shortage

Beating the water shortage

So, it’s official. Another summer drought faces Auckland and already a ban on watering our gardens is in place.

What to do? Fortunately Auckland Council has recently made it much easier for householders to capture rain from their roofs and store it in tanks for garden and other outside use.

We discover what you need to know.

Grey Lynn News - Grey Lynn Festival

It’s back! Grey Lynn Park Festival returns

After a winter of hibernation, our fingers will be crossed the rain stays away for at least one day when Grey Lynn’s favourite festival returns on Saturday 21 November 2020.

The organisers tell us we can expect all the usual fun and family entertainment with a range of local music acts and roving artists, crafty vendors and delicious food.

New for 2020 is a series of curated Tent Talks on topics like urban agriculture and sustainable living.

Get biking, get free stuff

Pedal to Grey Lynn Farmers Market on any Sunday in October, and if you’re one of the first 70 people to arrive, you could receive a $5 voucher redeemable that day from any market stall.

Leave your bike secure in the care of Bike Auckland’s free valet service while you shop.

The Bike to the Market event is part of the month-long Biketober celebration, thanks to a collaboration between the market, Bike Grey Lynn and Bike Auckland, and the support of Auckland Transport Community Bike Fund.
