Oteramika / Rockdale Rd/ Tweed str Roundabout new.

John from East Invercargill

On my walk this morning trying to take in the last of these beautiful summery days before the onset of winter chills drives us indoors I noticed a sign at the corner where Tweed crosses Rockdale Rd and turns into Oteramika Rd . By standing there I was able to read it , not that anyone in a car might , something about they are soon to start making this corner into a roundabout and to expect delays / detours . Next time I walk / ride past I shall check the expected start times but the heat from the sun forced me to seek shade before I melted. I think it was in a couple of weeks. I was too busy thinking that will make that an interesting corner now seeing as some truck and trailor units , plus other vehicles , are still doing 100 k's when they hit that junction. Of course it may aid those that are fleeing Police that seem to love Tweed as their escape route making it Russian Roulette at that corner. Enjoy the sun while you can .

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Let the games begin

The Team from Resene ColorShop Invercargill

Recreate a classic game in an unconventional format using Resene testpots to paint your own dominoes. Smooth rocks, like those found on the beach or in a river bed, work best for this project.

Take the kids out to search for ones that lay flat and are generally round or oblong in shape. If you don’t live near water, you should be able to get some from your local garden supply store.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Find out how to create your own rock domino set.
