How often do you check or even take your till receipt?
Today at New World in Havelock North I was charged for 11 Capsicum @ $1.99 each instead of 1!!!! and 2 boxes of tea bags @ $2.99 Instead of 1. A total of $22.89 over charged !!! How many times does this happen one has to wonder. I have found Havelock North New World to be the worst offender of this sort of thing. So check every item.
Excessive flushing of wet wipes caused a blockage at the Clive wastewater plant last night.
Please put your wet wipes in the bin rather than down the toilet. Although many say they are biodegradable, none are suitable to be flushed, and can cause wastewater to get blocked and overflow onto properties and pollute our waterways.
Dealing with blockages during the lockdown also puts our essential workers at risk.
Remember, washing your hands well with soap is still the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Hi there, hope you are all doing ok. What a strange day we are in.
If you are not part of an organised Neighbourhood support it is not too late. Go, knock on a door, keep your distance or watch out for when people are walking past, get each other's contact details so you can stay in touch and be friends and help each other out if need be. Especially for those over 70 or who are vulnerable, maybe don't have car, or with Special Needs.
It might be you can become a co operative.
It might that if you are needing to go to the shop, you check if two or three other need something to limit the number of people going - or if someone becomes unwell, someone else can deliver a meal to their door or someone might have loads of pumpkins or apples or lemons and they are willing to share (obviously, that would need to be under the strictest of hygiene) - or someone might be able to make some pumpkin soup or stewed apples but does not have the freezer space, but someone else does, so you can share the combined efforts.
If someone has a glass house, maybe you can offer to raise other people's seeds if they have them - you will have other cool ideas of how to help too.
My main point is, if you haven't go them, please try to get phone numbers and emails. Form WhatsApp groups etc. We must row this waka together and be there - albeit at a distance for each other.
Stay Well Everyone!
Please do any of these things with the most care possible to stay away from each other - if that makes sense!
