Toilet Rolls since lockdown

Sandra from Normandale

Remember how some of us rushed out and purchased trolley loads of toilet rolls for the big Covid19 lockdown?
Suddenly occurred to me that I still have to one spare large size roll pack waiting, of the two I rushed and bought on the day.
And just wondered how YOUR supplies were?
What of the person who had 18 packs aside.
AND the one who tried to take back [to supplier who refused returns] the thousands of dollars worth they found NO ONE wanted to buy off them on their black market.
Just thinking especially with the 2nd wave in Melbourne and NSW.

Monday Sport Blast From The Past

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Trish Hina could be the greatest sportswoman you have never heard of.
A product of Naenae College, she later settled in Gisborne, where she was a social worker.
Her sporting CV includes representing New Zealand in touch, softball, rugby and rugby league.
Initially, her sporting success came in softball, playing for New Zealand and helping her club and Hutt Valley win numerous titles.
League was however her first love and in 2000 Hina was named MVP at the first women’s World Cup, where New Zealand beat Great Britain 26-4.
She was prominent in the Silver Ferns retaining the World Cup in 2005 and 2008.
In the 2008 defence, Hina was named MVP for a second time. In the final, New Zealand thrashed Australia 34-0, with Hina scoring two tries and kicking three conversions.
In 2010, she achieved arguably her greatest achievement by being selected to play for the Black Ferns at the World Cup.
She became the first female to win rugby and league World Cups.
Towards the end of her career, Hina was diagnosed with kidney disease and she was unable to fulfill her dream of playing Sevens at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
In 2015, she was inducted as a Hutt Valley Sports Awards legend.
