Cooking For Dogs - Saturday, 29th August

Principal Therapist from The Balanced Dog Ltd

Many owners are seeking ways to add fresh ingredients to their dog’s diet. In this very special cooking class, you will make several recipes for your dog using human-grade ingredients that you can use as a ‘topper’ for their regular dog food; we’ll make dog treats, too. You’ll come home with everything you’ve made plus the recipes and other resource notes.

We’ll discuss diets in general, my support for the semi-homemade diet, and the challenges of feeding a truly balanced diet when relying on home cooking alone. $89 per person for the class including all ingredients and containers, except meats of approximately $30 (a list of meat ingredients will be issued to you before the class). Bring an apron (optional) and a carry bag is recommended to take your items home. Sorry, your dog needs to stay home for this workshop as dogs are not allowed on school property.

Venue is Papanui High School.Saturday, 29th August 2020 from 9 am to 12:30 pm Bookings required.

What moving to level 2 means for the rest of NZ

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

On Tuesday night, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced there were four new Covid-19 cases in the community.

Auckland moved into level 3 at midday on Wednesday, and the rest of the country into level 2.

Kiwis outside of Auckland can still continue to go to work and school, with physical distancing, and are advised to wear masks in public.

Businesses can open to the public if they are following public health guidance, which includes physical distancing and record keeping.

In terms of gatherings, New Zealanders must not travel to events with more than 100 people. This includes weddings, birthdays, funerals and tangihanga.

The Government advises all Kiwis to practise good hygiene and stay home if sick.

Tracking for COVID

Don from Parklands - Marshlands

I was thanked by several of those who have to take the details of people entering premises such as libraries when instead of answering the details they could just enter them on the keyboard screen she had.
With my hearing difficulty I have found it is much easier to just present my card with the relevant details for whoever is taking down the details, People with 'obscure' spelt names, foreign accents, can do likewise and make the transfer of details so much easier and with: Name, phone, address, all entered neatly and less time transferring bugs. My friend g g suggested all on neighbourly might appreciate this, I did one for him by pasting the letters from his animal soup onto a small card so he didn't feel so excluded. Cheers all and try to humour up, rather than putting down.
