Are you outraged that the Avatar crew are here?

Jean from Tahunanui

I am outraged that the Minister for Economic Development has used a little-known loophole to allow the 56 movie crew for Avatar to enter New Zealand, while we are all patiently and quietly enduring lockdown to keep us all in New Zealand, safe. Why on earth are there 2 rules here? This is worse than Cummings breaking the lockdown rules in the UK- this is 56 people breaking the lockdown rules! .
And the crew have apparently flown in from LA, one of the current coronavirus hotspots in the US.
And... get this! The producer says, "We're feeling very comfortable coming to the safest place in the world". Well - it WAS the safest place...
Does anyone know of a petition about this please? I have emailed our Prime Minister at jacinda.ardern@parliament.govt.nz

Sewing and repairs

Eva from The Brook

Hi there,

I have been trying to find the posting of the lady who offered to do sewing repairs including for soft furnishings (my poor sofa is to comfy to let go to rack and ruin!).

I think her name may have been Penny.

Can anyone help?
