Have you noticed extra Aucklanders in Whangārei?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangārei Leader

Aucklanders who fled the city before this week’s Covid-19 alert level 3 restrictions came into force are already putting pressure on health services in Northland. Northland should be "an island" due to the Auckland restrictions, but both pharmacies and community leaders have noticed an influx of Aucklanders. Have you noticed extra Aucklanders in your neighbourhood? And what do you think about them?

IRD scam

Patricia from Kamo

End of tax year has passed and the scammers are at it again. I just received an email from this address - Do Not Reply <my3IR.online.alert@connect.com.fj> - saying I was due a refund and to clink the link given and it would need my credit card details.
Note the address it has come from, always check the address.
The any emails from IRD will come from - <....ird.govt.nz>
