Come on Wellingtonians, start scanning!

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Stuff Wellington is launching a campaign to get people to start using the
Covid-19 tracer app.
New Zealand is still exposed to the new, more contagious, strains of Covid-19 despite the Government recently bolstering its border and pre-departure defences.
The number of daily Covid-19 tracer app scans has dropped from one million a day, at its height, to the current low of 300,000.
That means that if the more contagious variants get into the community, it will be hard to trace contacts.
Are you scanning? If not why not?

We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Upper Hutt Leader

Hi Upper Hutt,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used in the Upper Hutt Leader.

Weatherman raises $40,000 for Upper Hutt weather station

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Amateur weatherman Daniel Talbot​ has raised $40,000 for a weather station which he says will show a better meteorological picture of Upper Hutt.
Locals have long complained forecasting services haven't done their city‘s weather justice, either by under-selling the forecast or wrapping it up with neighbours Wellington or Lower Hutt.
