I hope you are staying safe and well during lockdown, getting all those little jobs done you kept leaving until next week, that never came, like me
As we are going into level 3 we won’t be having lunch for a few months yet, just think of all the money you are saving not paying for lunches and coffees.
I do miss all the company and smiling faces and chatting we have at our lunches, but hopefully it won’t be too long before we can all get back together again
Stay safe and stay well
Regards Eve

Stories from the ANZACs

ANZAC Day will be marked a little differently this year. We’ll be warm and cosy at home and The Last Post won’t start until you press play. But one thing will be the same – remembrance.

To help us remember those who served and understand what ‘to serve’ meant, Ryman recorded their ANZAC resident’s stories. Some are humorous, others are tragic and eye-opening, but they all offer insight into the courage, bravery, and determination required to serve.

What better way to remember than to read the memories of those who were there?

Stabbing staff with scissors, masturbating, being drunk and having sex are just some of the reasons why 310 people were booted and banned from Auckland Council libraries in the last four years.

The majority of the trespasses were for threatening behaviour (51), abusive behaviour (41), theft (33), graffiti tagging (14) and intoxication (nine).

Five people were trespassed from several libraries for multiple offences or where serious types of offending posed significant risk to staff at other sites. Three people were banned from all libraries for offences listed in the article below.

Despite this, an Auckland Council spokeswoman said its libraries were safe and welcoming for Aucklanders wanting to connect, read and learn, and trespass notices were issued in "rare and isolated cases, with no evident patterns". Library staff were trained in conflict awareness.
