What do you think of freedom campers being rounded up?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Freedom campers around the Whangārei district are being rounded up to two central Whangārei spots so police can keep an eye on them and ensure their needs are met. This comes as the number of cases in Northland hits double-digits, with 11 as of Thursday , with latest information available here. What do you think of the way freedom campers are treated? What alternative would you suggest?

Carl from Kerikeri District

Given that everyone is locked in and unable to earn a crust, then councils throughout NZ must cancel all rate charges until the end of this crisis. I'm sure the PM would provide assistance to councils for this.

And if you've already finished some home and garden projects during lockdown, don't be shy... show us what you've done. We'd love to see them! Click here and get in early to submit your questions and join in the fun. You can also email photos of your projects to: homed@stuff.co.nz.
