Stick to your bubble, not your couch!

The Team from Red Cross - Waikato Service Centre

Eaten too many bunny-shaped chocolates this weekend? Fed up of Netflix asking if your ‘still watching’? Or just looking for a creative way to keep active in your bubble? Well, we have an idea for you! Join the Red Cross virtual tour of Lake Taupo!

You can run, walk, yoga and even garden your way across the length of Lake Taupo (71km) from the comfort of your own bubble.

To join, you just need to make a minimum donation of $25. This donation helps fund the amazing work New Zealand Red Cross does. We are on the frontline of the COVID-19 response, with 190 of our volunteers working in their communities to respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Our Meals on Wheels and migration services have been deemed essential services and are continuing to operate throughout alert level four. And our Restoring Family Links service is supporting families who have lost contact with each other because of the pandemic. Our work supporting people in times of crisis or disasters is more relevant now than ever.

So, whether your rack up steps from running up and down your stairs, or simply walking to-and-from the fridge, have a little fun and join our virtual tour! - www.myvirtualmission.com...

Things that surprise Kiwis returning to NZ

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand.

Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

Humanely dealing with pests this winter.

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Have you ever had a pest problem? I used to have a pet rat. They are smart, affectionate, clever little things.
