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.
Meet Olive, a three year-old mixed female.
"I am an awesome girl who just needs an awesome family! I can be a bit nervous of new situations, so I am looking for a quiet and predictable home with teenagers or adults that can build my confidence and play with me. I would love to spend my days exploring the garden, going on adventures, and after a day of playing with my doggy friends, have a comfy bed to rest up in with lots of cuddles and treats. I am very strong so an experienced owner would suit me best. I would love to go to training classes and work on loose lead walking. If this sounds like you then please contact the canine team."

Again this should not be too hard working out who this trend setter is?
