Measles

Sandra Alexander from Upper Hutt: Wider Community Connectivity

I have a burning question!
Am truly saddened by the many reports relating to deaths from Measles.
Anyone able to help me get my head around this?
: Has the Measles Virus (or whatever) morphed over the decades?
If so ... why or how?
: Is it only unimmunised children effected?

Will stop there in the hope someone can point me to a reliable source of information in an attempt to better understand what is going on.

Christmas Pressure is coming ....

Sandra Alexander from Upper Hutt: Wider Community Connectivity

Somewhere recently, I noted a great suggestion ......
At this time of year .... Instead of filling our Noticeboards with "FREE STUFF" .....
Wrap, label (eg age / gender) and give to / place under the tree of your favourite charity for distribution to those who would appreciate / cherish

Wrap, label (eg age / gender) and give to / place under the tree of your favourite charity for distribution to those who would appreciate / cherish
such a gift.
I know I will definitely be taking this approach this year, so would like to know what agencies within our community would like some support.
Please can we gather information to enable satisfactory results for all
using this Community Connection page.
Charities: Let us know what would be useful and give a drop off point.
Neighbours: Let us know what you have available so it can be directed to the appropriate destination.
"Waste not; want not."
Sure hope others feel similarly to self.

WOW! Memorable. Picturesque setting. Novel layout. Easy access.

Mustn't forget .... very reasonable prices too.
Oh .... and the cherry blossoms are a picture at the moment.
'Tis almost the weekend, so pop up and see for yourself.

This evening I have noted some new names appearing on our pages.
Must be Local Body Election time...
I truly wish to THANK the acknowledgement that there is life beyond the other social media platform.
Please feel free to create an 'Election Group' here on Neighbourly to share your aspirations for our city.
That way you can access all the Upper Hutt communities beyond your 'Neighbours' and 'Nearby Neighbours'.
OR: one can use this page which was set up so we can reach North, South, West and East members in one hit.
Another benefit is that aspirants will only have to answer a question once!
Seems to myself that there are several important issues around this election, so everyone having the same info will be helpful.

Following a request for a picture of the former Maoribank Service Station, I have several people to thank for their help and knowledge.
Unable to find any reference via the 'UH Library Recollections' site I sought the help from other 'history buffs'.
Thanks to Brian Pearce and Paul Lloyd-Jones, I am now able to share this photo.
Once on the corner of Fergusson Drive and Mangaroa Hill Road, it was demolished; (maybe) in the early 1970's, to link the motorway with Fergusson Drive.
Thanks to all those who commented to my earlier post to ease my search. The topic has been of much interest to many, so I attach a photo we think may have been taken around the 1950's.
Any other knowledge will be gratefully accepted.
Sandra
