Bad start for Walnut season.

Ian from Papanui

Things aren’t looking good for this year’s walnuts. Plenty on the tree but they seem to be having problems releasing from the husks. Another unusual problem is that someone is eating them on the tree. A count this morning found 40% had been gnawed, presumably by mice, judging by the size of … View moreThings aren’t looking good for this year’s walnuts. Plenty on the tree but they seem to be having problems releasing from the husks. Another unusual problem is that someone is eating them on the tree. A count this morning found 40% had been gnawed, presumably by mice, judging by the size of some of the holes in the shells and the successful hollowing out of the meat inside.
Anyone else finding the same?

Christchurch City Council’s draft 10-year budget outlines an intention to increase on-street parking from July from $3.10 an hour to $4.50 – a 45 per cent increase.

The cost to park at the council’s Lichfield St car park building could also rise from $2.80 an hour to $4 – a 43 per cent increase. The rate at the Art Gallery car park could double from $2 an hour to $4.

In a bid to cut operating costs the council is also proposing to reduce library hours, permanently shut the mobile library and close the Akaroa and Lyttelton service centres, as well as the Riccarton Rd bus lounges.

I know how dissapointing it is to see level changes again especially after a weekend of big concerts like Electric Avenue which saw people from all over the country. We really appreciate our Governments attempts at trying to keep covid limited especially knowing the vaccine is around the cnr.

Here at Elusion we take our responsibility under all levels importantly. All members of our household are expected to use covid app at all times and we will let you know if anyone in our house is not 100% and reschedule if this was the case. Please in turn let us know if you are unwell and we can change appointment.

Both Shan and Patrick have been using covid app religiously since it came in even when there has been no cases in country because we want to be responsible for our children and clients. While we obviously cannot swipe into your homes our appointments are all digitally saved into our calendar so can me merged into tracker if needed and a complex report of 100% of Elusions movement could be provided to officials at any time should it be required. While our teens haven't always been so great they know its is now our expectation they play their part as well in protecting our customers.

Again we still cary sterigel and masks at all times and should you wish for Patrick to wear a mask just ask.

Best wishes
Shan and Patrick

We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.

A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 20 - 30th March. This year’s theme is ‘The Great Plant Swap’ - as an easy way for our neighbourhoods to grow stronger together. If you’re hosting an event, make sure to register it on their website: neighboursday.org.nz/join-in

Show us how you’re celebrating community this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz

**UPDATED:** 1.22pm Sunday 28 February

The Prime Minister and the Director-General of Health are currently providing an update to media in the Beehive.

Ardern has confirmed that health authorities have found a possible person to person link for how Case M and N picked up Covid-19. This could eliminate concern that there are other chains of transmission to identify.

Ashley Bloomfield asked people to keep an eye out for atypical symptoms
"This new variant of the virus, the B117, does seem to be presenting with symptoms that are not the typical respiratory symptoms," he said.

If you have muscle aches, do consider this might be a Covid-19 symptom.
_____________________________________________________

Auckland is now at Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country will move to Alert Level 2 until at least 6 March.

Here's what you need to know:
- Case M, the latest Covid-19 case, is a 21-year-old male, the older sibling of a Papatoetoe High School student.
- If you have symptoms of concern, call the NZ Covid-19 Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or call your GP.
- Find your closest Covid-19 testing location on the Healthpoint website
- Essential services such as supermarkets and pharmacies will remain open.
- Customer-facing businesses will need to move to non-contact methods of payment and collection.
- See the full list of guidelines under Alert Level 3 and Alert Level 2
- Keep up-to-date with the latest by following the Stuff live blog

Neighbourly will be updating this message as further information comes to hand.
