Future secured for Kawakawa pool

Catherine Langford from Far North District Council

The future of the Far North’s only Council-funded heated public swimming pool is more secure thanks to an agreement between the Far North District Council, Sport Northland, Bay of Islands College and the Ministry of Education. For news about other Far North District Council projects and services that make the District a great place to live and visit, go to our website and read our latest Creating Great Places newsletter.

Te Papawai Community Pool is a 25-metre, six-lane pool located at the Bay of Islands Recreation Centre at Bay of Islands College, Kawakawa. The pool is open to the general public seven days a week (Monday to Friday 6am-7:30pm and Saturday/Sunday 8am-2pm). Please phone the pool on (09) 404 0127 before visiting, because it is sometimes used by swimming clubs.

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.

Look our for others

The Team from Northland Police

We know some of you are facing threatening and potentially harmful times at home right now. Police will be there for you if you call us.

If you are in immediate danger and can’t call 111, leave your house and get out of harm’s way. Get to a safe distance and then ask a neighbour over a fence, or a passer-by, to call 111 for you. Your safety comes first.

It’s everybody’s responsibility to speak out and keep each other safe right now. If you think something is not ok with a friend, neighbour, or colleague, it’s okay to call Police on their behalf. The person you’re worried about may not be able to speak up for themselves. You could be saving a life.

Stay HOME and save lives this Easter; North leaders urge

Alison Shrigley Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Northland’s leaders and police are urging would-be holidaymakers not to travel to – or within – Northland for what would have been their traditional Easter break. Police say they will be out in force, to ensure people are sticking to the coronavirus lockdown rules. The Northland Mayoral Forum (pictured) says extra visitors will not only increase the potential of Covid-19 transmission, it will also put pressure on Northland's drinking water resources and healthcare.
If you are looking for fun activities this Easter, there are plenty of fun things to do at home.
