Budget not stretching the week?

Sharon Neighbourly Lead from Petone

If there are anyone who need food the number to call is (04) 5700273 this is for Salvation Army. I know there are families struggling and with the Petone food distribution closed this is another way to get free fruit, veges and bread so do call.

How is your pet reacting to you being around all the time?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Coco follows her owner round the house all day, Buster has started barking at strangers, and Rover has already been walked by every member of the family today. Twice. Dogs are overjoyed to have humans home 24/7, but they're sensitive, and during times of human stress need special care.

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.

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

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & 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.

It's always OK to ask for help

The team from Hutt City Council

Family violence and sexual violence services are essential and will remain available throughout the lockdown period.

It is okay to ask for help if you or someone else is in danger. If you think someone could be harmed or may harm themselves, call 111 even if you’re not sure.

HELP ME PLEASE….I’M LOST!!!

I I recently moved house from further up Riverside Drive in Waterloo to live in, Naenae and now I’ve lost my bearings and I’m lost!! I'm a Black and White, neutered male and microchipped. I normally wear a blue collar with two bells, but it's a safety collar so if I hook it on something it'll automatically release and fall off. I have a perfectly shaped little white bow-tie moustache, white whiskers and an inverted white triangle over my nose, the rest of my face is black. Black back and white tummy with puss-in-boots, white markings on both back legs and my front paws look like they were dipped in cream. I have a black tail curled like a koru.



I’m a very shy boy and will possibly run away when approached by someone I don’t know…..unless I’m being offered a bowl of cat biscuits!!

If noticed please phone my mum on 020 4104 3557 – Thank you SO MUCH!!
