Our Community Pharmacies will be open for essential services only which means they will provide prescriptions, other medicines and advice but won’t be open for browsing and casual shopping.

Just like supermarkets, our Pharmacies will have limited entry. On top of that you will be asked basic health questions before going in. If unwell, you could be asked to wait in your car or outside – better still ask a healthy person to pick up your prescription for you! They may need to bring ID and could be asked some questions by the pharmacy team.

Hi neighbours,
Did you catch up with this latest advice from the Palmerston North City Council's emergency operations centre?
"We’re encouraging people to keep their dogs on-leash whenever they are out in public with them – even on parks where dogs are normally allowed off-leash. This is to ensure the dog doesn’t come into contact with anyone but its owner. Please don’t let other people pat or approach your dog when out walking.”
Fair enough?

www.pncc.govt.nz...

Quick excerpt from the site,

"We’ve developed a registration form so you can contact us no matter what you need – this means that you won’t struggle to find help.

We’re responsible for coordinating access to household goods and services including food, transport assistance, medication collection, and general household goods.
For food parcel provision, Council is working with The Salvation Army, which has already combined its food bank services with Methodist Social Services, Crossroads Church and Just Zilch, and moved into a food delivery-based model.

For welfare needs outside of household goods and services, such as accommodation or financial support, Council will provide information and pathways for people to access the correct support channels."

With everyone staying home, it’s now more important than ever for everyone to be fire-safe. People can find information on our website - fireandemergency.nz...

We’re heading into winter, and with households self-isolating together, there’ll be more cooking at home, and more use of open fires, heaters, and dryers - all things which can increase fire risk.

New Zealanders can be confident that Fire and Emergency is well-prepared and ready to respond to emergencies as usual during the nationwide self- isolation period.

Please call 111 if you have a fire, we will ask you whether anyone at the address is self-isolating or has a confirmed case of COVID-19. Where this is the case, we already have necessary measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety including protective clothing, gloves, masks, safety glasses and mask.

Well now you can - live, in your living room.

The Neighbourly team is super grateful to our friends at Royal New Zealand Ballet for their support over the years - so we're excited to be telling our Neighbourly members about their very special event: Live in your Living Room.

This weekend, grab a cuppa and some gingerbread and venture in to the dark, fantastical realm of Hansel & Gretel. Inspired by the old-fashioned magic of silent movies and music hall vaudeville, this ballet will transport you to a magical world with large-scale cinematic effects, world premiere choreography by Loughlan Prior and a specially commissioned score by Claire Cowan.

Live in your Living Room. This curated series of productions from the RNZB archive will be broadcast weekly on Facebook Premiere.

Enjoy performances at Friday 3 April at 7.30pm; Saturday 4 April at 1.30pm and Sunday 5 April at 10.30am.

The Manawatu District Council is not directly supporting Palmerston North Residents with groceries.

Sorry for the long and blunt title but I have learned that the MDC website www.mdc.govt.nz... this number 06 323 0000 are not for residents of Palmerston North.

After contacting the Manawatu District Council, I was informed that this site and number are for rural places in the Manawatu which do not have a direct council. It is aimed at providing help with groceries or medication but it isn't for Palmerston North residents.

I am currently in communication with the Palmerston North City Council and have been informed that a similar site supporting for Palmerstonians is in progress but cannot accurately say when it will be up but it is hinted "Very Soon". I will keep you posted as soon as I hear anything.

Further to that I have enquired about what has been done with the information already submitted to MDC from Palmerstonians and have been told it was passed on back to the PNCC.

I have also asked PNCC if the info already submitted to MDC was able to be collated together in some way with the PNCC's upcoming support registration system, in any way people won't need to resubmit their applications and I am waiting to hear back on that.

So to recap, For those of us in Palmy,
1. Please do not apply to the MDC Support page
www.mdc.govt.nz... or contact 06 323 0000 this particular service is not for Palmerstonians.

2. Our Council is working on a similar system, it will be up very soon. I'll post here the moment I know.

3. If you have already applied to MDC, they sent your info back to PNCC in the hopes it can be integrated with PNCC support systems. I'm waiitng to hear back if that information can be used or if you need to reapply entirely when the PNCC COVID-19 Support site is up. I'll publish the info here as soon as I hear.
