Very frustrated this afternoon, to find out an event I am trying to promote in the "What's On" Column (Chess on the Blue Train), gets no mention.

I am starting to wonder where their allegiances lie!!
A case of Covid-19 picked up in Wellington has turned out to be a false alarm.
Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield on Thursday announced 13 new cases of community transmission in New Zealand – all outside Wellington.

Who's doing fire works at this time of year? Not very fair!
We live in Rimu Road Raumati Beach. Today just after 2pm an older woman with dark hair (possibly of Asian descent) driving a very dark brown - almost black Mazda Demio - registration number GTU 386 walked onto our property and proceeded to take photo's of the house and grounds. When asked by our son what she was doing, she said - "taking photo's" and very quickly got back into her vehicle and drove away. If anyone has more information on who this might be we'd be glad to hear from you as we will be reporting this to police.
