Politics

Maxine Jacobs Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Ata mārie kiritata,

The seat for Palmerston North's MP is in for a battle its never seen before. National's candidate William Wood, 18, has launched campaign for the city today. Labour incumbent Iain Lees-Galloway, 41, said he will be campaigning on his record of action of the city.

Can a recent high school graduate match - and beat - a seasoned politician for the people's vote?

What do you think?

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

Beside myself with worry

Annie from Milson

Hi
My Dad lives in Hamilton and I live in Palmy he has Alzheimers but manages to still live at home with carers help. For the last 14 months I have done his groceries on line but of course now with this happening I am having problems. He has run out of food and although I have rung the supermarket 3 times now emailed a list, given them my credit card etc, they still haven't delivered his food. Does anyone know who else I could contact, I can't seem to find anything on the covid-19 website.
