Dog walkers take care: Fur seal pups about

Kathryn from Lynmouth - Moturoa

There are seal pups hanging out on beaches again, so if you're taking your dogs to the beach please keep them close or on a leash. Saw a seal pup being mauled by two dogs on Back Beach yesterday - not a pretty site.
The pups are well camouflaged, often just look like rocks or driftwood until… View more
There are seal pups hanging out on beaches again, so if you're taking your dogs to the beach please keep them close or on a leash. Saw a seal pup being mauled by two dogs on Back Beach yesterday - not a pretty site.
The pups are well camouflaged, often just look like rocks or driftwood until you get quite close. (The photo is of the pup mellowing out before the attack: can you see it?) Even if you do recognise them, you may think they're dead when they're not - they often seem to nap while their mum's are out fishing.
People are also welcome to report sightings here: www.hotspot.org.nz...
Thanks!

Yesterday, I had my first vaccine jab.

I had minor side effects but nothing to worry about. I am in the over 70 age group.
If you have concerns on having jab, don't worry, the support workers will help and support you during your visit at the vaccine clinic.
I have my next appointment on the 8th October for the second vaccine jab.
If you haven't had your jab, just ring the 0800 28 29 26 and make booking.

I like to take this opportunity to thank all support staff who are working at Vaccine Clinic in Powderham Street New Plymouth.

Confused?

NumberWorks'nWords New Plymouth

To is a preposition with several meanings, including “toward” and “until.”
Too is an adverb that can mean “excessively” or “also.”
Two is also pronounced the same as to and too, but it can’t be used instead of either of them because it’s a number.

Did you know 1 in 4 New Zealand adults will suffer from a mental disorder or distress at some point in their lives? When they do, let’s make sure they don’t have to go it alone. To create safer, more caring communities we need to not only look after ourselves but those around us as well.

For the month of September, we want to come together to share ways to boost mental health and well-being. For example, you could host an online catch up or quiz, call a neighbour who lives alone, challenge your family and friends to try a new hobby or move your body more to improve your own well-being. If you or someone you know is going through a rough patch, don’t forget you can call or text 1737 anytime for free support from a trained counsellor.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re looking out for your well-being and helping others with theirs this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to: info@neighbourhoodsupport.co.nz
