Arch Hill, Auckland Central

About Arch Hill:

Arch Hill is a tiny suburb of Auckland, New Zealand under the Auckland Council’s local government. The area is known as Arch Hill because of its topography.

Interesting Historical Facts

The ridge that became Arch Hill may have been the location of the famous Battle of 1730, the Broken Calabash Attack. This battle between the two warring Maori tribes probably took place around this ridge, likely in the area of Arch Hill.

In 1880s, Arch Hill was part of an 80-acre farm that extended from what is now Great North Road, down the gulley where the North West Motorway passes, and up the Morningside area. It was owned by Joseph and Jane Young, who had settled in Auckland in 1842, and the farm was renamed 'Arch Hill,' after Joseph had been raised near Strabane, Londonderry County, Ireland.

Outdoor Recreation

Arch Hill Reserve is a strip of lawn and hillside scrub extending along the North West Motorway. It's less than 4km from the centre of downtown Auckland.

There's more than 3km of very neat singletrack, appealing to most skills. There is an easy trail named "Training Wheels" between the trees on the motorway’s flat side. The other tracks are situated on the hillside and need at least advanced riding skills.

Local Schools

The local secondary schools that serve Arch Hill are Western Springs College, Mount Albert Grammar School, St Paul's College and St Mary's College.

Rain or shine, joy and love are always in style; brighten everyone’s mood with a Brolly by Bass

Celebrated New Zealand artist Emma Bass, renowned for her sumptuous floral artworks, has brought her joyful compositions to life by combining them with the ever-useful umbrella.

Emma recently exhibited in the UK and decided that London would be the perfect place to trial her prototype brolly:

t rained every day that I was there, but every time I put up my umbrella it brought a smile to myself and others. In a sea of black city brollies, why not stand out?

Emma loves using her brolly as a parasol for UV protection from the harsh New Zealand sun. No more hats!

With an artful natural bamboo handle and tip, the 23" waterproof umbrella has been constructed with quality materials and is unbreakable in windspeeds of up to 120 km/hr. The brolly’s shaft and ribs have been made from durable steel and fiberglass making it ideal for New Zealand’s changable weather conditions.

I love the process of working within an unusual format, it’s very satisfying to be able to design something that is both beautiful and functional. I’m so excited to share this creation and I have more wonderful ideas up my sleeve.

FACES @ GREY LYNN FARMERS MARKET
Terry Phillips is the driving force behind Real Dog Food at the market.

How did you get involved in making dog food?
I had a very sick dog. I was spending lots of time and dollars at the vet, and trying everything that I could. Then someone suggested that I try this food. Two weeks later, my dog was much better and lived a long and healthy life. I believe that all dogs deserve a healthy life.

So dog health is important to you?
I love dogs, and dogs are getting a raft of health problems at an alarming rate. I’m sure that the preservatives and other fillers that go into large-scale commercial products aren’t good for dogs, just as they aren’t good for us. Preservatives kill a lot of the beneficial microbes in the gut that are needed to properly digest food.

And this mirrors your own health journey?
Yes - I was very sick myself. I needed a break so we booked a bach and found out that we had booked in the middle of a healing retreat. I received a lot of advice and support to dramatically improve my own diet. Now our whole family has become vegan and we feel much better for it.

How is your dog food different?
It is locally made in West Auckland using locally-sourced, human-grade ingredients. We sell direct to customers so they get very fresh dog food and we don’t need to add preservatives. This food was developed for the genuine love of dogs. A lot of thought has gone into our recipes to make sure that we provide a complete and balanced food for dogs.

That sounds expensive.
Not at all. We think that all dogs deserve good food, just as people do. Part of that is making the food affordable. Selling direct to customers, at markets and online, cuts out a lot of cost. I was shocked when I investigated the costs of selling through vets and supermarkets.

So markets work well for you?
We love the market because a lot of customers bring their dogs with them - they can try it there or take samples. Owners know immediately whether or not their dogs will eat it. We love talking about dogs and the specific challenges they are facing.

“This is now urgent. The targeted support is great, but we can’t expect that forever. We need tourists to back it up.
