Adult dorm dwellers in coronavirus lockdown with 23 flatmates

Caroline Williams Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours. It sounds almost like a social experiment or an episode of Big Brother – 23 flatmates are locked in a house together for a month.
But the residents of The Coh in Eden Terrace say there's no better place to be during the coronavirus lockdown.

Hi neighbours. It sounds almost like a social experiment or an episode of Big Brother – 23 flatmates are locked in a house together for a month.
But the residents of The Coh in Eden Terrace say there's no better place to be during the coronavirus lockdown.
The Coh is a co-living development with 22 bedrooms, nine bathrooms and a shared kitchen and living areas, including a cinema room.
The group is passing the time by playing board games, watching movies and having cooking competitions.
Fitness classes are being held in one of the living spaces at 7am and 6pm from Monday to Friday.
Is this a lockdown environment you'd like to be in?

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

While our doors are closed, you can still experience some of your favourite parts of Tāmaki Paenga Hira with us here online.

We've pulled together amazing stories, activities, videos and puzzles from our channels and archives into one Museum at Home hub, so you and your family can enjoy the Museum experience outside of our four walls.

Watch how volcanoes are made, make an exotic bird case come alive in a puzzle, read about when The Fiji Times was printed on Masi (bark-cloth) or see some never-before-seen photos of Sir Edmund Hillary and his expeditions.

We have included activities for kids, and for the young at heart, as well as long reads and videos for those who want to deep dive into life at the Museum. We'll be adding new things for you to read, watch and interact with regularly, so make sure to check back in.

This is a difficult time for everyone. However, there are some people who will find this to be a more trying time than it is for most of us. We don’t want to see anyone fall through the cracks and not receive the help they need.

📱We have set up a dedicated phone number - 021 266 3143 - for people who are struggling emotionally and would like someone to talk and pray with. It will be operated by various staff members at different times during the week. If you know or are aware of anyone who needs help, either spiritually or emotionally, then please give them the above number. We care and we’re here to help.

❤️ We also have people who are available to help with shopping and supermarket delivery for those who need assistance. The food bank food parcels are also available for those who need special care. To organise this just contact the Hills Help on the above number. Also if any of you are wanting to help out with this please email Hannah at office@hillschurch.nz (weekdays).

Flick us a private message and we will pass on the number - or if you attend Hills Church then join our family group for more updates.
