COVID-19 response update

Web Secretary from Pukerua Bay Residents' Association

Pukerua Bay’s COVID-19 response group has now met several times. It’s all systems go for activating our network of support. We have 18 street champions covering all of the Bay.

Last year, we also had a layer of volunteers. This became a little too complicated but what did work really well was all the support neighbours gave each other. If you had a local Facebook group or phone tree last time, maybe you could start it again?

For more information, please go to the community website COVID-19 page at www.pukeruabay.org.nz...

To access help, please:

use the “ask for help” link on www.pukeruabay.org.nz...
email us at hello@pkbhub.org.nz
phone Helen on 0211466421.

Stay well, Pukerua Bay!

Harbourview Care Home in Porirua will close next year

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Bupa is closing its Porirua rest home facility, Harvourview. It will close next year and the 54 residents will hav to find new accommodation.
The company said it would work with residents to find alternative care homes. Bupa also owns Bupa Crofton Downs and Bupa Whitby.
Those who will need to find new accommodation include 97 year-old Myra Leggett.
Porirua mayor Anita Baker said earlier this week the closure of the care home would be a “huge blow” for Porirua. She said up to 60 jobs could be lost and Porirua residents would have to travel further to see their relatives.
