QR COVID Scanning.

Mark from Stonefields

Please can everyone turn on their Bluetooth Covid App and scan the code when out and about. It’s back in our community, this was always going to happen.

Scanning into Sylvia Park the other day I was shouted at by some person that I didn’t need to do that, as there was “no Covid in there”. The stats are about only 13% use the app, my observation is this is correct. People who don’t, where it’s easily accessible are either, far too laid back, lazy, or misinformed. I know for some people they can’t access the code, or use the tech for a variety of very valid reasons but these aren’t the people I observe not scanning in. I have heard that some shops don’t display it in an easy to find or use place, while out and about lately I haven’t found one of these, I presume they exist somewhere.

If it gets back into our community again which is probable it could cost the country $1000,000,000 per day, we need to pull together here to make sure it can be quickly shut down.

For all our sakes to value what we have please scan in and out and turn on your Bluetooth option on the app.

Ever noticed the empty buses ? What's the answer ?

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, If buses are running near empty, maybe the traditional way of providing public transport needs a rethink. Read the story below on the empty buses of Hobsonville Point. What's the answer ?

We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.
