Dogs on Leads Please... in urban areas Please...

Heather from Brightwater

The TDC state that all dogs in urban areas must be kept on a leash. Dogs may run free in Dog Exercise Areas, but still be under effective control. Therefore: dogs should not be running through private residential sections... unattached... while being exercised...

Are you outraged that the Avatar crew are here?

Jean from Tahunanui

I am outraged that the Minister for Economic Development has used a little-known loophole to allow the 56 movie crew for Avatar to enter New Zealand, while we are all patiently and quietly enduring lockdown to keep us all in New Zealand, safe. Why on earth are there 2 rules here? This is worse than Cummings breaking the lockdown rules in the UK- this is 56 people breaking the lockdown rules! .
And the crew have apparently flown in from LA, one of the current coronavirus hotspots in the US.
And... get this! The producer says, "We're feeling very comfortable coming to the safest place in the world". Well - it WAS the safest place...
Does anyone know of a petition about this please? I have emailed our Prime Minister at jacinda.ardern@parliament.govt.nz

Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.

More than meets the eye

Hannah Cunningham from Volunteer Marlborough

For the second installment of our new Q&A series sharing about community organisations around Marlborough, we caught up with the team at The Blue Door...

What is the The Blue Door's mission/goal? We aim to be a leading reuse organisation that also supports and gives back to the Marlborough community.

What do your volunteers do? Our volunteers help in a variety of ways; providing customer service, sorting and pricing donated items (e.g. books, toys, linen, clothes, kitchenware), placing priced goods in the shop, and manning the checkout counter. We have approximately 40 volunteers and we couldn't do it without them!

How does The Blue Door support and give back to the community? We provide a welcoming, friendly, non-judgemental place for Marlborough people to buy inexpensive clothing, goods and furniture. However, we are so much more than an 'op shop'. We also give the shop profits back to the Marlborough community by way of grants, provide furniture and goods free to those referred to us by other organisations, provide new Christmas gifts annually for children (distributed by MGC Leos), give jars free to the foodbank, and we are a battery and mobile phone recycling depot!

Where can people follow and connect with you? We're on Facebook: www.facebook.com...
