Northland’s leaders and police are urging would-be holidaymakers not to travel to – or within – Northland for what would have been their traditional Easter break. Police say they will be out in force, to ensure people are sticking to the coronavirus lockdown rules. The Northland Mayoral Forum says extra visitors will not only increase the potential of Covid-19 transmission, it will also put pressure on Northland's drinking water resources and healthcare.
If you are looking for fun things to do this Easter, there are plenty of fun things to do at home.
Stuff travel writer Brook Sabin has named Kerikeri as one of the small towns Kiwis should visit, along with the likes of Timaru, Cambridge, Murchison and Cromwell. What do you think of the nomination? And are there any other small towns you think New Zealanders should visit?
Joe Neville has been missing since 2pm yesterday from 39 Darwin road. He is a greyhound cross, black with a grey face as he is quite elderly. Please call Liz or Geoff on 027 848 3162 or 407 3162 if you see him. He is very gentle and friendly. Thanks very much.
Kia ora Northland, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.
