Atamārie kiritata,

Palmerston North City Councillor Billy Meehan is practicing self-isolation after returning from a trip to Jordan and Italy over the weekend.

Tēnā koutou i tēnei ahiahi kiritata,

The Government has banned events of more than 500 people to halt the spread of the COVID-19 virus, a measure that will hit an already bruised economy after sweeping travel restrictions last week.

Dan Boyd, co-owner of herbs and spices supplier Raptor Naturals, said the business has been rocked by the cancellation of the Central District Field Days and other significant shows.

It relies on sales from big events for 30 per cent of its revenue.

More than 600 stands will also lose out on the benefits of the event.

What businesses in your area are feeling the pinch? Do you think they will survive the outbreak?

Mōrena kiritata,

A 30-year-old woman is the second person in New Zealand to have a confirmed case of Convid-19.

She flew from Italy through Singapore to Auckland, jumped on another plane to Palmerston North on Monday and returned to Auckland on the same day.

She spent 5 hours in Palmerston North carrying the virus.

Some people have said she should have quarantined herself before travelling to the Palmerston North. Would you have done that?

Looking to do large scale pruning jobs

My name is Jack and I am interested in any large scale pruning jobs in the Manawatu area that the average joe bloggs doesn’t have the ability or the equipment to do. I have many years of experience in the horticultural industry, especially when it comes down to pruning and tree care.

I provide following types of pruning:

* Deadwooding
* Crown and canopy thinning
* Crown canopy lifting
* Directional or formative pruning
* Vista pruning
* Crown reduction
* Pollarding

I currently work as a Nursery Technician for the Manawatu District Council, specialising in propagating native plants. I’ve decided to take advantage of my skills and knowledge in horticulture/arboriculture and use that for something to do during my downtime with a bit of extra pocket money on the side, hence me promoting my services.

NOTE: I am not interested in tree removals nor am I qualified or have the experience to do so. Cutting down trees can be very dangerous. I also do not have the equipment to undertake such jobs. I recommend hiring a professional for this type of work.

NOTE: I do have the proper climbing and safety equipment if a job requires me to ascend and work in a tree. I am not a qualified professional or had extensive training in this particular field of work but I do know how to use the equipment safely and confidently with the proper techniques involved. I’m not a risk taker so each job will be considered through a case by case basis.

If you are interested please message or call me and maybe include an image of what you would liked pruned and I can provide a quote. I can also do an onsite visit and provide a quote that way.

Phone: 0274358059
Email: j.felix.mckay@gmail.com

Cheers,

Jack.
