Lockdown cans sculpture garden for Women’s Refuge

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from North Shore Times

A sculpture exhibition to raise money for the Women’s Refuge has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

NZ Sculpture OnShore was set to take place at Fort Takapuna in late October, after already being delayed by a year.

But a digital exhibition and fundraising campaign is set to go ahead in its place.

NZ Sculpture OnShore Dee Paranihi said with the current lockdown and uncertainty around alert levels, the risk of continuing with the live exhibition was too great.

“Having already postponed the event by a year due to COVID-19, this is a huge disappointment for our team and sad news I’m sure, to you, too,” she said.
 
“However, all is not lost! With many of the stunning sculptures completed, or close to it, we are now focussing on bringing you the artworks via other platforms and galvanising our supporter base to raise money for Woman’s Refuge.”

More details on the digital exhibition will be released soon.

Covid-19: Concern over number of positive cases on North Shore

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

Kia ora neighbours. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is urging North Shore residents to get a Covid-19 test if they are unwell, as concern grows over cases in the area.

“If you are on the North Shore and experiencing any symptoms, even if you have been vaccinated, please do go and get a test."

She added Auckland’s cases were not confined to one part of the region.

“They are across 124 suburbs,” she said, adding that this should pay as a reminder that the Covid-19 restrictions “matter for everyone”.

Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.

- Green is for I'm OK

- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in

- Red is for an emergency

This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
