Kia ora neighbours,
What has been some good news in your neighbourhood that's happened during the lockdown?
Kia ora neighbours, we're getting a lot of stories about Covid-19 saturating our newsfeed and the media as of late and we're keen on helping put a damper on that. We'd love for you to tell us some of the more light-hearted stories that you think deserve a shoutout.
Maybe it's a community hero that's been helping out those that are self-isolating, something you discovered while out exercising in your bubble, or something you're doing to help pass the time.
Let us know in the comments below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Hutt News.
This week we feature a picture from Louise Thomas, who has been to Stewart Island.
"You shall not pass!" she said defiantly standing her ground in the middle of the track. "You can however, sidle past while I stand on this stump." How can something so small be so completely unafraid of the world? South Island robin/kakaruwai (Petroica australis), Ulva Island, 7 January. I guess that makes it P. a. rakiura.
Dale Hinkley from is the proud mum of Nell.
"Here is a photo of Nell from Waikanae - playing in the sea here. She is seven. Three quarters miniature poodle and one quarter springer spaniel. She has a wonderful nature - rarely barks, never fusses and adores all humans."
