Hi Auckland neighbours,

A leading coronavirus expert is urging the Government to make scanning mandatory at such potential "super-spreader" venues as bars and nightclubs.

The pleas follow figures revealing daily use of the Covid Tracer app has plummeted to a fifth of its peak.

Last Monday, a total of 515,759 scans were recorded nationwide, down from the high of 2.5 million on September 4.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.

Hi,
I am urgently looking for more people or pets to practice on. Treatments are painless, safe, gentle and take about an hour. I've had some great results so far with adults, children, dogs and horses, ranging from less pain, improved movement and better posture to less anxiety. I've just attended the second part of my training and want to put it into use straight away, so that I don't forget what I've learned at the course. I don't have a treatment room yet, but I do have a (very comfortable) massage table. Please DM me if you, or someone you know, would be up for a relaxing session in the comfort of your own home. Thank you!

"Know your wetlands"

World Wetlands Day on February 2 is being promoted as a great opportunity for Kiwis to get to know their local wetlands – often described as “the kidneys of the country”.
Wetlands filter, absorb and transform water contaminants, particularly run-off and shallow groundwater from farms, and help reduce the amount of undesirable elements reaching streams, rivers and lakes. However, over 90 per cent of the country's wetlands have been drained in the past 200 years, with North Island regions most affected.
“Wetland areas are also good at capturing carbon, it's a nature-based solution to climate change that is even more effective than tree planting. All up, wetlands have a disproportionately high benefit compared to other ecosystems.
“But New Zealand's wetlands need restoration and looking after; we urge councils to beef up their efforts to support and promote the great work being done by landowners and increase funding for restoration projects.”

Are you looking for a fun, family activity this summer?

Gather your whanau and head to Devonport for the Staycation Scavenger Hunt!

Up until 31 March, New Zealand Red Cross are running a shop-window scavenger hunt on Victoria Road, Devonport for families to enjoy!

The scavenger hunt is based on the not-so-true story of Kanoa the clumsy Kākāpō, who has lost 10 holiday items in 10 different shop windows. Kanoa needs your help to find her missing items so she can enjoy her kiwi summer staycation to Devonport! Find all 10 and you can enter the prize draw to win some amazing prizes too!

Purchase your scavenger hunt map for $4 from Devonport library or from the New Zealand Red Cross website - 100% of the proceeds of the shop-window scavenger Hunt will go to New Zealand Red Cross!

A perfect activity for the school holidays or a sunny Saturday afternoon!

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
