Ngā mihi o te ata kiritata,
Some of our neighbours have gone above and beyond with their take on the teddy bear hunt sweeping the nation.
The McKinnon and Walter families have created a giant bear in their paddock, alongside a big dog - I don't think its name is Clifford - and a few side pieces their children jump on to bring joy to passing truckies.
Do you have any teddy bear creations that we haven't seen? Post them here or send them through to firstname.lastname@example.org, we'd love to see them :)
*Sorry about the dad pun, I couldn't help myself

Has anyone else noticed that although the NZ Pension website shows the new increased rates from 1st April 2020, the MSD website says our next payment on 14th April will be ........ which is the old rate? It could be because they have less staff (understandable} but if a mistake I hope a few of you affected will message them.
