I have lived in Birkenhead for just over three years. I amoriginally a Southlander who has arrived in Birkenhead via several years in Japan and Korea. Describe your neighbourhood. Birkenhead is great as it is so close to the centre of Auckland but has a cool village vibe. It has great localwalks and eateries, and running errands is more like a series of friendly chatswith local business owners such as Chris and Liz atOtt Patisserie and Grant at Highbury Butchery. What is your earliestmemory of the Shore? Myearliest memory of the Shore wasmy first date at Takapuna Beach withmynowwife, Kate! Kate grewup in Birkenhead andmoved back to the area after living overseas. What are the greatest advantages to living here? Location – convenience to the CBD yet totally different in terms of lifestyle, community, outdoor space, people who care about where they live.

Rather than a single person I really admire all the volunteers who look after the localwalking tracks such as the ones through Le Roys Bush or around Chelsea Sugar Works. What do you like least about the Shore and howcanwefix it? I suppose the biggest annoyance about Birkenhead in particular is the access to the motorways in the mornings, then again this isn’t something unique to just this area. Where is the best place to have ameal? For brunch – Bungalo. For dinner – Blitza Pizza. What are you doing this weekend? Our regular visit to the Sunday markets in Takapuna for fruit, vegies and flowers, and then thinking about heading to the jazz at the Auckland Domain Band Rotunda.
