Wayne Purdon, 57, can remember the crash that killed nurse Jodee-Anne Redmond and injured builder David Dell but he was seen swerving over the road for about 12km before he crashed into their vehicles on SH1 near Mangapai Rd. On Wednesday, he was sentenced to two years and four months in jail for his dangerous driving. What do you think?
We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.
ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

The iconic Ninety Mile Beach/Te Oneroa-a-Tōhe is about to come under a new beach management plan, which includes rules to help turn the tide on damage and neglect. It includes news speed limits on the beach of 60kmh, reducing to 30kmh within 200m of entrances. What do you think?

How consistent are you with the COVID Tracer App?
Several businesses and other industries have asked consumers to continue using the Ministry of Health's COVID Tracer App as the number of QR code scans drops off over the summer months.
The Ministry of Health reported that national scans on January 19 were down to around 640,400. Scans peaked between September 4 and 5 where over 2.5 million scans were registered.
With more contagious strains of Covid-19 being detected in managed isolation facilities, District Health Boards across the country are encouraging business owners to get their patrons to sign in in order to maintain their ability to contract trace in the event of a community outbreak.
