Hi neighbours,

Sir John Key’s recent media blitz was full of suggestions for how the Covid-19 response could have been done better. Some have been found to be false (such as his claim we could have paid Pfizer for preferential supply), and some seem to have lit a fire under the Government to get things moving (such as the suggestion of home quarantining).

How do you feel about Key’s contribution?

Kia ora! G here from Team Supergenerous, a Kiwi social enterprise helping to make your donations to charitable organisations go a little bit further.

Did you know that nearly $250 million of donation rebates go unclaimed every year? Imagine the good some of that money could do in our local community? That's why we exist, to make the rebate claiming process easy and help you regift donation rebates to your favourite charities and schools.

All you have to do is sign up and tell us who you've donated to over the past four years. We then gather the receipts, lodge them with the IRD, manage the claims process and regift your rebates to the charitable organisations you care about.

Here's a bit more about us, otherwise we hope you'll join us on our mission to Help Good Go Further!

From Wednesday, she said people will be able to travel across the Auckland boundary and into a level 2 environment if they are:
==================================================
***relocating permanently, either to move into a new property that they've purchased or rented, to start a new job, or to travel to a tertiary education residence

***if they have shared caregiving arrangements, for instance joint custody of a child

***if they're returning home from alert level 3 to an alert level 2 environment

There are rules.
=============
"If you're leaving Auckland and not returning, you need to get a negative test within 72 hours before your departure. That's the same requirement as those who are already permitted to move across the border," Ardern said.

"For those who are crossing the boundary for shared caregiving arrangements, because this involves more back and forth travel, they'll need to have a test within seven days of each crossing, the same requirement for those moving freight or part of essential work."

All must carry proof of the need to travel and cannot be sick.

Ardern said travel for funerals and tangi will still only be considered on a case-by-case basis, because they are considered risky in terms of potential transmission of COVID-19.

I. Hate. RATS. 🐀

Markus from Green Bay

I had started my first compost last year, but had a feeling it was getting smaller lately. Today there could be no doubt: the heap was really disturbed, and a deep tunnel was visible (see picture).

Today there could be no doubt: the heap was really disturbed, and a deep tunnel was visible (see picture). So I guess rats had tunnelled in from underneath. I googled how to make my compost rodent proof, but of course the wire mesh I would need is not an essential item that Mitre 10 or Bunnings could sell. But maybe anyone has some leftover galvanised wire mesh (holes no bigger than about 1.25 cm, as mice and baby rats can squeeze through anything bigger) from their own rodent proofing, approximately 1.25 m x 1.25 m square?
Thanks
Markus
