Who are the useless parents allowing their kids to ride their bikes around the neighbourhood, and play in Harriet Reserve (Richmond) area?
I watched a group of kids riding their bikes over the dirt jumps there and another couple of kids came down the road to join them. No 'social distancing' going on.

The 'Daily Grind'

Jax from Atawhai

We have all been affected with the Cover-19 lockdown. Our daily routine of work, schools, homes have all been turned upside down.

The most significant businesses that will feel an instant hit, no doubt, is your local cafe or coffee cart. Just a thought. That $4.50 (more for a double shot!) that we rarely think twice about spending, makes a huge difference to our small business cafe owners when you multiply that by the amount of customers they are losing per day. The impact is huge. Why not put your daily coffee money aside, put the kettle on at home, and when this is all over, donate the money, however small, to your local cafe. We all know they are an important part of our Nelson culture...now is an opportunity to pay this back. Places like @jokerespresso with ever smiling Tracy and @bobbyfranks with the gorgeous Kira deserve to be remembered in all this! We will be back!
