Hello I Live on Hewer Cres, and want to offer Neighbours on Hewer a supply run.
I’m heading out alone tomorrow, to get our fortnightly shopping, me and my husband always did this together but sadly this is now not possible.

I’m Not out to rip anyone off, i assure you i just want to help.
You will need to have a debit card with payWave, your supplies wont be able to exceed $80 as this requires a PIN number, and i dont want to take your pin.
You’ll need to write your list down, along with your phone number, put this into your shopping bag with your bank card and can leave it by the letter box, ill collect this and return it leaving your stuff at the gate ill call you when I’m back.

I’m aiming to leave 10am tomorrow morning. Message me and ill send your my mobile number.
If you have an elderly neighbour? Ask them if they need something.

Stay safe out there and take care.

Kia ora whānau,
In line with the Government’s directive that we were to escalate to COVID-19 alert level 4 protocol from midnight on 25 March Hutt Valley DHBs’ facilities will be adopting a no-visitors policy with only a few notable exceptions.

The exceptions include a nominated person who is supporting a terminal patient through end of life care, a parent/guardian who is supporting a child, and a birthing partner for women in labour.

The decision about whether exceptional circumstances apply – eg a person with an impairment who has specific needs from a skilled person – is at the discretion of clinical teams.

Thank you for your support as we work to slow the spread of COVID-19 and help save lives.

We’re now at Alert Level 4. Stay home. Save lives.

New Zealand Government

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Dear concerned citizen,

We must now all stay home. Because that’s how we’ll stop the virus.

Level 4 measures will likely be in place for a number of weeks.

Don’t worry. During that time you will still be able to access all the essentials you need, including medicine, food, and other home supplies.

ALL THE TIME, NO EXCEPTIONS
It’s incredibly important that we all follow the Level 4 plan, all the time. No exceptions. Because doing so will save lives.

A CHALLENGE FOR EVERYONE
We realise these are big changes. But these are challenging times.
If we don't all stay home, the whole country will need Level 4 restrictions for longer.

SUPPORT OUR EMERGENCY SERVICE PEOPLE
We owe it to the essential services. Our nurses, doctors and everyone else on the frontline. They’re working tirelessly to save lives. We should all do everything in our power to help them do this.
Thank you to each and every person, for doing their bit.

While you’re staying at home:

STAY CONNECTED
• Don’t let physical distance stop you staying connected. Keep in touch with people using video calls, phone calls, chat and texting.
• If you know people who are living alone, vulnerable, or separated from their loved ones, regularly check-in with them.

STAY WELL
• Continue to practice good hygiene – wash your hands with soap. Then dry.
• Cough or sneeze into your elbow.
• Regularly clean surfaces in your home with disinfectant.
• Keep up regular physical exercise, and get some fresh air when possible. It’s good so long as this is solitary, or only with those you live with.

REACH OUT
If you need advice, support or help, try reaching out to friends, family, whānau or workmates.

WE'RE UPDATING INFORMATION CONSTANTLY
For all the latest advice, including answers to your health and financial questions, go to Covid19.govt.nz.

And remember: what you do now, will help protect all of us.
