Bronwyn Reader from Cat Rescue Christchurch

We have a Speed Dating fundraiser being put on by Catnap Cafe in Columbo Street as a fundraiser for Cat Rescue Christchurch.

See photo's for details or go onto facebook and look at the event under the Catnap Cafe page.

We need you all to get your diaries out and become match makers for all of your single family and friends and persuade them to come along to a singles night at catnap cafe. You just have to be an animal lover not just a cat lover.

We need more men in the 40-50 group. Room for 8 and we have 3 woman booked and only one man so far. We need to get the numbers matched at the very least or to help Cat Rescue, fully booked.

In the 30-40 age group we have 2 men to 6 woman booked so come on guys. Give those woman a chance to get to know you.

In the 20-30 age group we have 3 men to 1 woman booked so need to up the anty with getting more woman involved.

Even is 2 weeks away so lets get those persuasion skills working and see if we can find some match's.

Christchurch recycling temporarily halted during Covid-19 crisis

Anna Williams Reporter from The Press

Mixed paper, plastic and glass from Christchurch and Banks Peninsula households will go to landfill, instead of being recycled. If people are struggling to fit all their general rubbish in their red wheelie bin during the lockdown, they can put excess in the yellow wheelie bin - temporarily.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.
