Indecent Exposure in Otumoetai

Robyn from Otumoetai

Hi all, I was out for a walk this evening around the estuary down from the Goods Road entrance heading towards McCardles Park/Coach Drive, when I came across a guy exposing himself out in the open along the edge of the gravel walk path. This took place just before 7pm. The guy, Caucasian, in his 20s maybe 30s, didn’t act aggressively towards me when I question him, more dazed, so possibly high. He looked to be unkept with faded baggy black/khaki green clothes (long pants and a hoody) and had a dark coloured back pack. His hair was medium length light brown and he had some facial hair, but not enough to be defining. My husband seems to think that he’s seen him around the area before. Anyway just wanted to let everyone know, maybe keep your eyes peeled and please be cautious. I have informed the police and they have confirmed they are on the look out.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

SCRAPBOOKING CARDSTOCK 12X12 WANTED

Pauline from Brookfield

I know we are in lockdown & I know shops are closed, but if there are any home businesses in my local area I really would appreciate some cardstock to finish off a baby album I'm doing for a friend, that's keeping me busy & occupied during this time. I'm sure we could work around it & keep each other safe somehow
