Hi neighbours - my friends and I have run a free bootcamp (Froot Camp) in Auckland Domain for over three years and I wanted to invite you train with us.

In uncertain times, exercise can be so good for us - it supports both our mental health - and our immunity. Getting out of the house and into fresh air is good at the best of times - but right now, when many of us are housebound and working from home it’s almost necessary!

We naturally practice social distancing (as some of us are faster than others!), are non-contact and have asked all members to be conscious of their water bottle placement (and to use a unique water bottle) and not to spit. We're also asking anyone not to train until they're 100% back to normal.

We have a heap of fun and would love you to join us. Take a look at www.frootcamp.co.nz... - there's no catches. It's just...free.

PS - if you are currently self-isolating, please do the right thing and give it a few more days :)

Mayor Phil Goff today announced the temporary closure of libraries and a number of cultural institutions across the city.

The Museum’s Chief Executive Dr David Gaimster said “Auckland Museum is aligned with the Auckland Councils efforts to limit the transmission of the COVID -19 coronavirus. We will close our doors today at 5pm and will review our position regularly as new information from Health Officials comes to hand.”

“This was not an easy decision,” says Gaimster. “Auckland Museum has a role in the community to provide a sense of trust and continuity in times of uncertainty. However for the health and wellbeing for our visitors, our people and communities it has been necessary to make this difficult decision.”

The Museum will continue to operate behind the scenes undertaking the full range of its non-public facing activities such as caring for collections and taonga, research, digital and online initiatives, preparation of exhibitions and development of public programmes, planning and conservation.

Dr. Gaimster says while the Museum building is closed, it can still be visited online.

“Stay in touch with us at aucklandmuseum.com and we’ll keep you informed. Connect with us on our social media channels where we will bring you inspiring stories of our Museum, its collections and people,” he says.

“We don’t know yet when we will be able to re-open our doors, but we look forward to welcoming visitors back when we can,” says Dr. Gaimster.

Hamilton-based brewery Good George Brewing is switching some of its distillery to make hand sanitiser, in response to shortages across the country.
"We've decided to change lanes this week and put our distillery to a different use," the brewery posted on social media.
"We're kicking off trial batches of hand sanitiser so that more Kiwis can stay safe. Wish us luck, how hard can it be?"
Desperate times call for desperate measures and, experiencing the hand sanitiser shortages firsthand when he tried to buy some for the team, Macklow decided the whiskey was going to have to wait.
Today is day two of the first trial batch of hand sanitiser and, all going to plan, Good George expects to have 1000 litres of this suddenly much sought after commodity ready by Monday.
The first batch will be free of charge and Macklow says it will go to everyone in the team, to the Good George pubs, where customers can use it, and to locals in Hamilton who might be in need of sanitiser.
As for the following batches, he is not sure whether it can stay free but hopes to keep it affordable and accessible to anyone who needs it.
