Tobi from Aranui

So this morning at about 9am whilst enjoying my morning coffee on the porch I spent 10 minutes putting together my daily joke post being very careful not to post anything "offensive" or "UN-neighbourly" (like a picture of a thumb or something) and to post in the Lockdown Jokes group not on the Noticeboard as requested.

Anyway about a minute later my post disappears. I wait about an hour and its still gone! so I email helpdesk@neighbourly.co.nz to see what the problem could possibly be today.

Shortly afterwards my post reappears but now it is on the Noticeboard (where I have been previously told not to post jokes) So I move it back to Lockdown Jokes (where I posted it) (I know sounds like a setup!).

anyway I will post a transcript of the email communications in replys.

Survey on pet sitters

Sarah from Waltham

I am currently studying small business studies. I have developed this wee survey looking into pet sitting.
Please if you have a couple of minutes I would appreciate you taking part.
Feel free to share with friends who may or may not currently use pet sitters. Should only take a few minutes.

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.
