Well now you can - live, in your living room.

The Neighbourly team is super grateful to our friends at Royal New Zealand Ballet for their support over the years - so we're excited to be telling our Neighbourly members about their very special event: Live in your Living Room.

This weekend, grab a cuppa and some gingerbread and venture in to the dark, fantastical realm of Hansel & Gretel. Inspired by the old-fashioned magic of silent movies and music hall vaudeville, this ballet will transport you to a magical world with large-scale cinematic effects, world premiere choreography by Loughlan Prior and a specially commissioned score by Claire Cowan.

Live in your Living Room. This curated series of productions from the RNZB archive will be broadcast weekly on Facebook Premiere.

Enjoy performances at Friday 3 April at 7.30pm; Saturday 4 April at 1.30pm and Sunday 5 April at 10.30am.

Fun Crafts During Lockdown

Clare from Saint Leonards

Here's a fun way to keep kids busy for a while, and also to make a display of family or friends at a stressful time.
You need:
1 large sheet of card
several sheets of paper
scissors
glue
crayons, felt pens, or paint (or a mixture!)

Here's a fun way to keep kids busy for a while, and also to make a display of family or friends at a stressful time.
You need:
1 large sheet of card
several sheets of paper
scissors
glue
crayons, felt pens, or paint (or a mixture!)

On the cardboard, draw the outline of a peacock's body and legs - no tail. Keep it simple, and relatively small. You want most of the page for his tail.

On the sheets of paper, trace around hands - use as many family members and different size hands as possible. Left hands, right hands, big hands and little hands. You want as many hands as you want people on your 'tail', the more the better! Write the name of the person you want to remember on the hand, then colour it in. Be creative!

Cut out the hands, glue them to the sheet of cardboard to make the tail of the peacock.

Display it somewhere that you can all see and enjoy it :)

Post photos of your peacock on here so we can all see it :)

How about another question?

Grant from Raureka

One expert believes it's the only way to get all the facts on the spread and the information that can give us a chance to eradicate the disease. I know the first response will be -"it would cost too much" - but that's not the issue. We have the NZDF able to go street by street, house by house, if necessary as long as we have enough test kits. The result would be able to find those with minor symptoms or those who are just carriers - what do you all reckon?

Rude dog owners

Sorry got to grumble, I am a dog owner myself and fully understand that walking them is important at this unsettling time.

I am only walking my dog very close to home to not be near others and their houses. We just walked around Queen's Square, we in one circuit came across 6 dog poos all fairly fresh, now common dog owners please be responsible and pick that up. You should in my mind never leave the house with your dog without a bag or whatever you use (ours has a container of bags clipped to his lead) to be able to pick it up.

Please keep others who are also wanting to walk/run with or without a dog in mind.
