Bubbles within bubbles

Sally Kidson Reporter from The Nelson Mail

One Nelson apartment block has come together, apart, to celebrate community spirit while socially distancing. What's happening in your hood?

Would those people that use the footpath to exercise their horses please stop. These are footpaths for people not horses. The horse shit that is left behind ( pardon the pun)is really not a good look. If you are to lazy to pick it up then leave your horse in the paddock.

Covid-19, kids, and playgrounds.

Kelvin from Richmond

Who are the useless parents allowing their kids to ride their bikes around the neighbourhood, and play in Harriet Reserve (Richmond) area?
I watched a group of kids riding their bikes over the dirt jumps there and another couple of kids came down the road to join them. No 'social distancing' going on.
Come on people...this virus kills and you let your kids out to play with any number of random kids?
