A heartfelt request

Linda from Northcote

`PLEASE please do NOT stockpile and bulk buy goods. There is absolutely no need to do this. At no time in the forseeable future is the food going to run out.

There is absolutely no need to do this. At no time in the forseeable future is the food going to run out. IF you need to self isolate or quarantine for whatever reason, it is possible to order goods online or via phone through Countdown and New World and have these things delivered to your door. Be mindful that panic buying (a) serves no actual purpose at all (b) is not necessary and (c) is depriving vulnerable people including the elderly of items they need right now, let alone in a time of crisis. Please use your common sense and ask first "do I need all of this now and, if so, why?" If the answer is No, then just shop as you normally would - whether in person, online or via phone.

Free rabbit

Howdy neighbours!

I've ended up having to rescue a rabbit yesterday from a rather complicated (and not great) situation. The owner has now asked that I try to find a home for him as she is in Northland and won't be able to travel down to collect him.

Howdy neighbours!

I've ended up having to rescue a rabbit yesterday from a rather complicated (and not great) situation. The owner has now asked that I try to find a home for him as she is in Northland and won't be able to travel down to collect him.

So I'm wondering if anyone would love a gorgeous 14 week old white male dwarf rabbit. I would keep him if our situation would allow but it's driving one of my dogs crazy and we don't have a suitable outside area.

It would be great isolation entertainment for kids :-) He is also apparently litterbox trained but suspect he may need to be refreshed on this.

My number is 021 847 886

We are truly grateful to all the organisers, volunteers and supporters who have been working tirelessly to make this festival happen. Thank you also to our funders who recognised the importance of such activity.

Now is the time to be kind and look after our well-being as well as the well-being of the planet.

Toddler has rare bowel disease that is 'robbing' him of normal childhood

Danielle Clent Reporter from North Shore Times

Hi neighbours, a two-year-old boy has spent half his life in hospital because of a rare disease that can see him pass up to 40 painful bowel movements a day.
Now, his family is hoping to raise $150,000 to take him to the United States for an operation to eliminate his pain.
