Something Positive we could all do

Susie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

We (not very far out of Havelock North), have noticed an increasing number of walkers on our roads, and lots with family (bubble) groups. Wouldn't it be great if, when you / we are all out walking, we took some form of receptacle and picked up all the rubbish on the sides of the roads.

Wouldn't that be a great and good thing to do?

If you are worried about contamination, you could wear gloves or use tongs to place in the rubbish container you take.

How is that for a good idea peeps?

We are so happy to be welcoming an incredible new partner to Neighbourly - joining our long-term friends AMI, Resene and Ryman Healthcare.

Pet Direct are the new kids on the pet block and know the industry inside-out; they have over 350 dog years of animal experience within their team. Most importantly right now, they're still delivering all your essential items during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The Pet Direct team do things differently; firstly they ALL have pets of their own. They also personally hand-pick every product they stock; they have over 5,000 items that have been tried and tested (but mostly eaten). They ship daily, from their Auckland-based warehouse, straight to your doorstep (with free delivery over $29), and offer a best price guarantee.

Neighbours - our pets remain a constant source of love and comfort during unsettling times. So show them (and the team at Pet Direct) how special they are. To say thanks for the support (and for being a good neighbour during this tough time), they're offering you 10% off their already awesome prices. Just use the code NEIGHBOURLY10 at checkout.

NZ has been at Alert 4 since Wednesday 25th March. We are currently on day #10 of a Nationwide Lock down.

We currently have 868 case of Covid 19 and 1 death.

Petrol price was $1.79

Schools are cancelled until at least 24th April 2020
Teachers have all taken up the task of teaching online, as well as music, dance, tutoring.

There is a world wide “Going on a Bear hunt” as you get some fresh air in your “bubble” you look for bears sitting in people’s windows, as you walk/bike with barely anyone around.

Self-distancing measures are strictly in place.
People must stay in their family "bubble" and not allow visitors, go visiting or be closer than 2m from other people.

Tape on the floors at grocery stores and others to help distance shoppers (2m) from each other.

Limited number of people inside stores, therefore, lineups outside the store doors.

Special early store hours for the elderly and immune/health compromised people, essential and emergency workers.

Non-essential stores and businesses mandated closed.

Parks, trails, entire cities locked up.

Entire sports seasons cancelled.

Weddings, birthdays gatherings are cancelled.
Funerals can only happen with those in the bubble of the deceased.

Concerts, tours, festivals, entertainment events -
Family celebrations, holiday gatherings - cancelled.

No masses, all religious institutions are close, churches are having their services and kids programmes online.

No gatherings of 2 or more unless from the same household

Virtual doctors visits are now mandatory to limit exposure.

Healthcare professionals video conferencing families of patients on their death beds to say final goodbyes since visitation is not possible.

Children's outdoor playgrounds are closed, as are swimming pools and recreation centres.

Shortage of masks, gowns, gloves for our front-line workers.
Shortage of ventilators for the critically ill in countries all around the world, NZ is ok with these at the moment.

Manufacturers, distilleries and other businesses switch their lines to help make visors, masks, hand sanitizer and PPE.

Government has closed the border to all international travel. Domestic travel only if necessary.

Press conferences daily from the Prime Minister, Police Commissioner and Health Officer.

Daily updates on new cases, recoveries, and deaths.

Barely anyone on the roads.

People wearing masks and gloves outside.

Essential service workers are terrified to go to work.
Medical field workers are afraid to go home to their families.

This is the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, declared March 11th, 2020.

Why, you ask, do I write this status?
One day it will show up in my memory feed, and it will be a yearly reminder that life is precious and not to take the things we dearly love for granted.
We have so much!
Be thankful. Be grateful.
Be kind to each other - love one another - support everyone.
We are all in this together 🖤

Child care for essential workers

Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

I’m being asked if I can go back to work next week. Does anyone know if there is any child care for essential workers in Havelock North?

I don’t have anyone to look after my son. He usually comes to work with me, but can’t while the lockdown is on.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

Our products are some of the best in the world.

Cashiers are in the bathroom bawling because they are getting called names and threatened over limitations
Cashiers are calling out of work because they can't take anymore
Cashiers are quitting because they are not appreciated for putting their health, and their families health in jeopardy to make sure you and your family are fed
Teenage cashiers are watching all of you "adults" panic and they are getting scared
Cashiers are watching you all leave with heaping, hoarded buggy fulls only to find empty shelves when they get off work to do their shopping
Cashiers are working non stop, with back, feet, leg and more pain to cover for the ones that you have already ran off
Cashiers are coming into contact with too many people because you are coming in for nonsense and bringing the whole family with you for a field trip
Cashiers are getting coughed on and people insist on getting too close. They are risking their health to serve you.
What are you going to do when they all stop coming in and the store can't open for you at all?
Will you still scream and cuss at them because you can't clear the shelves?
One man finally apologized after I went to speak to him for screaming at a 17 year old and his excuse was "I'm having a bad day". Guess what, THEY ARE TOO.
YOU NEED THESE PEOPLE RIGHT NOW. Please act like you appreciate what they are doing. What if it was your child getting cussed and yelled at when they went to work?
It's already starting. They are not coming into work because of you. These limitations had to be put into place because people didn't act right. Start acting right before we don't have workers willing to be there to serve you and we can't have anything open at all.
