Tobi from Aranui

So this morning at about 9am whilst enjoying my morning coffee on the porch I spent 10 minutes putting together my daily joke post being very careful not to post anything "offensive" or "UN-neighbourly" (like a picture of a thumb or something) and to post in the Lockdown Jokes group not on the Noticeboard as requested.

Anyway about a minute later my post disappears. I wait about an hour and its still gone! so I email helpdesk@neighbourly.co.nz to see what the problem could possibly be today.

Shortly afterwards my post reappears but now it is on the Noticeboard (where I have been previously told not to post jokes) So I move it back to Lockdown Jokes (where I posted it) (I know sounds like a setup!).

anyway I will post a transcript of the email communications in replys.

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Are you OK?

The Team from Canterbury Police

Your emotional and mental wellbeing is important. It is normal to feel stressed or lonely when self-isolating, but there are some things you can do to feel better.

Even if you are not sick you may be feeling anxious about COVID-19. This is normal.

Reach out to your family and whānau, friends and workmates. Sharing how we feel and offering support to others is important.

We want to remind you that if you or someone you know is struggling right now, there is free help available.

Kia Kaha Aotearoa.
