Meet Harry from the Wellington SPCA.

"I may look like a typical wild rabbit, but I can assure you I am not. My mum was a domestic rabbit and super sweet. I am good with people I know, and am still young and still learning. I have an inquisitive nature and would love a home with people who will have me around them, either as a solely indoor rabbit, or mostly indoors. I will need a large outdoor area with a weatherproof hutch or shelter for days when the weather is nice. I will need to be inside as part of the family at night, so a hutch or area inside with you is important. I would also like a female rabbit for company, so if you have a lonely rabbit maybe we could be friends?"

**UPDATED:** 1.22pm Sunday 28 February

The Prime Minister and the Director-General of Health are currently providing an update to media in the Beehive.

Ardern has confirmed that health authorities have found a possible person to person link for how Case M and N picked up Covid-19. This could eliminate concern that there are other chains of transmission to identify.

Ashley Bloomfield asked people to keep an eye out for atypical symptoms
"This new variant of the virus, the B117, does seem to be presenting with symptoms that are not the typical respiratory symptoms," he said.

If you have muscle aches, do consider this might be a Covid-19 symptom.
_____________________________________________________

Auckland is now at Alert Level 3 and the rest of the country will move to Alert Level 2 until at least 6 March.

Here's what you need to know:
- Case M, the latest Covid-19 case, is a 21-year-old male, the older sibling of a Papatoetoe High School student.
- If you have symptoms of concern, call the NZ Covid-19 Healthline on 0800 358 5453 or call your GP.
- Find your closest Covid-19 testing location on the Healthpoint website
- Essential services such as supermarkets and pharmacies will remain open.
- Customer-facing businesses will need to move to non-contact methods of payment and collection.
- See the full list of guidelines under Alert Level 3 and Alert Level 2
- Keep up-to-date with the latest by following the Stuff live blog

Neighbourly will be updating this message as further information comes to hand.

It's time to prepare your home for winter! Yes, that much in advance

Monica from No. 8 Building Recyclers

Kia ora neighbours!

Kia ora neighbours!
If you ever entered a double glazed house, you noticed how warm and silent it is. Most people start looking for double glazing in April, when the cold is already here. With the increased demand, the time frame to complete the job and prices also increase. So why wait? Get it done now and be prepared for winter!
Of course, given the financial element of any home improvement project is always a concern, you begin to wonder how much energy-efficient windows like these cost. While the initial investment in double glazed windows is higher than the regular single-pane option, the amount you’ll save on your heating and cooling bills over the course of their lifetime will more than make them worth your while. That’s not considering the environmental benefit, either. Decreasing your energy consumption will help reduce your carbon footprint.

Greater Wellington Regional Council will reconsider offering an Airport Flyer service to Lower Hutt when the service returns in 2022.
The regional council is looking to take over the Airport Flyer service after the previous privately-run service was paused during the Covid-19 lockdown and then canned completely last in November.
However, an initial report prepared by council officers did not consider the option of a Lower Hutt service, instead only recommending a line between Wellington Airport and the Wellington Railway Station.
The regional council unanimously passed a motion agreeing to explore the option of a direct service from Lower Hutt to the Airport as part of a consultation on the region’s public transport plan.
