If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.

Old Violin

Filomena from Flagstaff

Hello dear neighbours. Over this past lockdown, my little son developed an increased interest in violin - he puts my old ukelele on the cheek and pretends he's playing violin :D I am wondering if anyone has an old violin standing in the garage that would like to get rid of.
Thanks in advance.… View more

I have sent an email to Paula Southgate and other councillors, Jamie Strange, David Bennett plus Martin Chandler and Gemma Brooks from Kaingaora

I urge everyone else do do the same

Would be great if we could get a petition underway but under COVID19 very difficult
