Diwali has different meanings worldwide depending where you live but primarily it celebrates the triumph of good over evil. Whether you are celebrating at home by lighting lamps & eating treats, or you are going to a nearby festival, we'd love to hear about your Diwali celebrations. Feel free to share your photos and best wishes to your community below.
We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.
ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

How consistent are you with the COVID Tracer App?
Several businesses and other industries have asked consumers to continue using the Ministry of Health's COVID Tracer App as the number of QR code scans drops off over the summer months.
The Ministry of Health reported that national scans on January 19 were down to around 640,400. Scans peaked between September 4 and 5 where over 2.5 million scans were registered.
With more contagious strains of Covid-19 being detected in managed isolation facilities, District Health Boards across the country are encouraging business owners to get their patrons to sign in in order to maintain their ability to contract trace in the event of a community outbreak.
