Market closure a big financial hit

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Market gardener Tommy Young is down up to $7000 after the Wellington City Council told fruit and vegetable sellers they could not trade at the Sunday Harbourside Market due to COVID-19 restrictions.
While people could buy hot chips in beef tallow at Wellington’s Harbourside Market on Sunday, lettuce and other vegetables were out of the question.
At Ohau, south of Levin, market gardener Tommy Young received the cancellation call about 9.30pm. His truck was already loaded and ready for the early morning drive to Wellington to sell his wares at the popular market.

Have you seen this amazing garden?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.

A helmet may be one of the best investments you can ever make

Grant Neighbourly Lead from Johnsonville

The attached image is what is left of my sons' helmet after he came off his bike yesterday. It doesn't take much to imagine what would have happened if his head had been unprotected. As it was he walked away with some grazed fingers and a slightly sore neck.
After this incident I can wholeheartedly recommend safety helmets as one of the best investments you can ever make.
