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.

What do you think of NorthTec coming to Whangārei's CBD?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

NorthTec is launching a new city centre learning hub in the former Mallets shop. It will be a digital learning hub for students and a spot for potential students to make inquiries. The hub will open early June. What do you think of this move to the CBD? Do you have any other ideas for some of the empty shops in the area?
