Hi Neighbours, I've just taken over the coordinator role for the Food Rescue Tamatea PaknSav. We are in desperate need of volunteers to donate around an hour of their day to help hand out food in the community. We need permanent volunteers for Monday & Tuesday as well as, on call at short notice volunteers to cover our team when needed. If you think you might like to help out please head over to our Facebook & message me or on here for a chat & more details. :)
We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.
Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.
She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.
Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

We know some of you are facing threatening and potentially harmful times at home right now. Police will be there for you if you call us.
If you are in immediate danger and can’t call 111, leave your house and get out of harm’s way. Get to a safe distance and then ask a neighbour over a fence, or a passer-by, to call 111 for you. Your safety comes first.
It’s everybody’s responsibility to speak out and keep each other safe right now. If you think something is not ok with a friend, neighbour, or colleague, it’s okay to call Police on their behalf. The person you’re worried about may not be able to speak up for themselves. You could be saving a life.

Hi I’m looking for a 1-2 bedroom unit to rent for a family member who wishes to return to Hawke’s Bay once the lockdown is over. I realise I won’t be able to visit or view these properties but just wondering please if anyone knows of any such properties possibly coming up in the near future. Thanks in advance. Nicola
