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.

How considerate are your neighbours?

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, are you seeing and hearing a lot more of your neighbours during the lockdown? Has it helped you get to know them better - from an acceptable social distance - or is the noise of everyone being home together all the time getting to you?

Now more than ever it's up to all of us to try not to annoy our neighbours, and to be more tolerant ourselves, so here are some easy ways to do just that.

And if you're wondering what makes a good neighbour and what makes a bad one, check out the 12 most annoying neighbour types. How many have you lived next to?

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.

Repairs to anything needed ie whiteware, plumbing, etc during lockdown

Elly from Welcome Bay

Trade Staff 0508404040 are an essential service and have a number of trades people to assist during this close down. It is a number worth keeping. One does not know when something is going to break down during this time. They were advertising on the radio this morning.
