My Kind Neighbour nomination

Martha-Louise from Newmarket

Yesterday I used Neighbourly for the first time seeking recommendations to clean the gutter on my workplace. Ì had previously requested a quote from a company, and I thought they were actually having me on when I saw the figure. As i was unable to pay that, i turned to neighbourly for recommendations. This morning, enter Dianne Nortcott and her son, Theo, who had been "volunteered" for the task. 45 minutes later, they arrive with ladder, bucket, gloves and other utensils. The gutter was cleared of large amounts of turf - home to my pigeons - and then rinsed out. Dianne and Theo, i cant tell you how much I appreciate your kindness. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Martha-Louise Asmus.

Coronavirus: Auckland remaining at alert level 3 until August 26

The Team Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Have you heard the news? Auckland will remain in level 3, while the rest of the country will remain at level 2 until midnight Wednesday, August 26 – an additional 12 days.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the approach is “short, but precautionary”. Extending the restrictions for an additional 12 days is the same length of the virus’ incubation period, director-general of health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said.

Wearing masks

Annie from Remuera

Have just returned from a busy local dairy . I observed for about 20 minutes approximately 30 people coming and going into the dairy .
I was alarmed only 2 people scanned the QR code, and only a handful were wearing masks.
I am unsure if it is a vanity thing not wearing a mask , or people thinking the Covid is not in our area.
Have a reality check everybody , it is the responsibility of all to take this situation very seriously.
