COVID-19 level 4 update

Communications from Tauranga City Council

"The lights will still work, your water will still run, your toilet will still flush, and your calls will still be answered."

That is the message from Tauranga Mayor Tenby Powell, as our city along with the rest of the country prepares to self-isolate to fight the spread of COVID-19.

Our focus is on the public’s long-term welfare and the city’s key infrastructure. Tonight at 11.59pm the nation will move to alert level 4. We will also be moving our focus and workforce to supplying the essential services our communities rely on.

To find out how our services, facilities, venues and events will be impacted by COVID-19 visit our website:

Stay safe and be kind. We'll all get through this together.

Join us for lunch and some new ideas

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how are you finding life in lockdown? If you're looking for new ways to mix things up at home and in the garden, we can help!

Join us for a virtual lunch from 12.30 today (8 April), when NZ House & Garden and NZ Gardener editors Naomi Larkin and Jo McCarroll will be live on Homed to answer your questions, share their expertise and chat about your latest projects.

From repurposing items you already have to create a stylish new interior, to getting a steer on what you can sow and grow in the garden right now, here's your chance to get help and advice from those in the know.

And if you've already finished some home and garden projects during lockdown, don't be shy... show us what you've done. We'd love to see them! Click here and get in early to submit your questions and join in the fun. You can also email photos of your projects to: homed@stuff.co.nz.

A reward for taking the lockdown seriously.

Lyn from Tauranga Tasting Tours & Charters

We're sure that, if we keep on behaving ourselves, we'll be able to flee the coop before too long & that conviviality & cuddles will replace coronavirus.
With that in mind, we have planned our next wonderful winery tour to Hawke's' Bay.
Travel with us through the verdant countryside & treat your palate to that voluptuous Red you have never savoured before, a classy White, a wine style you didn't know existed.
Time to cater to your Epicurean self again & to live "La Vie en Rose". (Maybe that needs an accent.)
And for those who usually travel overseas it's time to spend domestically & to help the economy get back on track quickly.
