Connings food market

Reinhard from Mapua

Hi guys,

I have just signed a petition to get Connings reopened. Connings, a local produce food market was closed by the government. So, instead of driving 12 kilometres to Connings we now have to drive 18 kilometres to the supermarkets in Motueka. There we can buy veges at high prices which were transported from who knows to Motueka, handled by dozens of people.
In the 15 years I am in NZ this is only the second petition I signed because I support this.
Go ahead and sign it here: chng.it...

Support a local business with local products.

How about if we post the best jokes we have heard on a joke post. It would give everyone a bit of a giggle in these strange and stressful times we are going thru. There are a lot of people that could do with cheering up.
