Who can and CANNOT SHOP

Norma from Helensville

I would love to have absolute clarity as to who must NOT go to the shops.It is my understanding that if your over 70 you are NOT allowed to go to the supermarket.Some of my friends think that's incorrect.Also shopping with your partner seems to be confusing .My son and his partner went shopping together (he was shopping for me and his partner shopping for her parents)They were not allowed in the shop together so my Son waited in the car before shopping for me.It would seem that some supermarkets aren't complying and I applaud new world for enforcing that rule.Countdown on the other hand have told me I'll be welcome to shop even though I'm in my 80s with already serious underlying health issues.Does anyone know for sure what is 100% correct?
Phew hope someone can help me do the right thing .I've no wish to be arrested lol

The Story of Surfdale

The Team from Auckland Museum

Did you know that Surfdale in Waiheke Island received its name via a competition? The winner was awarded a section of land near the beach...

At 8 pence a day on top of a small deposit, a Surfdale section was also promoted as a sound investment – so close to downtown Auckland that “values must go up and up and up”.

Well, they weren't wrong there.

Today, Waiheke Island brings to mind sunny vineyards and beachy weekend getaways. The image of Waiheke as an “island paradise” has its origins in 1920s marketing, but the island has long been desirable even as its character has changed over the past centuries.

As we go into the long weekend and begin to venture further afield again, why not have a read of how Waiheke came to be the place it is today, in this blog about its recent history by our Project Curator, Jane Groufsky.

Living the dream

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

It's inspirational to meet a family that's taken the plunge to leave the rat race and establish themselves in the country. This couple not only managed to keep their jobs, but also build a stunning house on the Coromandel Peninsula that has caught the eye of NZIA judges.
