Vin Alto Wines Spring Sunday Luncheon (great idea for fathers day)

David Prescott from Wine and More Albany 2

It’s been two LONG years since we visited the Vin Alto winery in Clevedon, so I have organised a start of Spring Luncheon at the Vin Alto Winery for Sunday September 9 and with the winter we have had I think we all deserve the day out. Enzo has designed a special menu and will serve some Vin Alto wines from his cellar to match the food . If for some reason you would prefer something different for any of the courses please call or email me to discuss, Enzo is very accommodating
.
I have organised a bus to take us out there and back again, you can park your car here at Wine and More, bus will leave here 11.00am, and return around 4.00pm. The bus can take 50 so be quick, friends and family are welcome. (R18)

International planes still flying into New Zealand ...WHY??🛫🛬

Fiona from Henderson

Would someone out there be able to tell me why are we (New Zealand) still allowing planes from China, Malaysia, Hong Hong, Honolulu, Santiago, Doha & even Fiji to land here in this lockdown?
I thought that the extended timeframe for these airlines was last Friday.
It is still happening daily.
Before anyone says it's only Air New Zealand flying anywhere or even maybe they are cargo flights, they're not.
The various airlines flying in or out are:
China Eastern Airlines
China Southern Airlines
Shanghai Airlines
Malaysia Airlines
Fiji Airways
Polynesian
Cathay Pacific
LATAM Airlines
Qatar Airways
Qantas
I do know that Swiss Air and Lufthansa (along with Austrian Airlines later in the week) are here for a 'mercy dash' to remove their citizens via Auckland & Christchurch, so they don't count.

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.
