Where to find your favourite Hot Cross Buns in lockdown?

Catrin Owen Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Who loves Hot Cross Buns? Nothing beats the smell of a freshly toasted hot cross bun, but as Easter this year will be spent in coronavirus lockdown and your favourite bakery or cafe is closed, we've put together a list of some of the best spices buns you can find or if you're feeling adventurous why not make them.
My personal favourites are from Daily Bread. What's your favourite thing about Easter?

Shopping for the elderly

Ray from Henderson

Hi there
I'm in my late 60s and my father is 93 and only my wife is able to go out. We are having trouble getting to the supermarkets with large ques waiting to get in. I wish this panic buying would stop. Listen to the experts "We will not run out of stock" By bulk buying these people are depriving the elderly of essential goods. Is there a way that a time slot can be set with ALL the supermarkets for Seniors to do their shopping. How can we introduce something like this. Your help would be very much appreciated

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.
