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.

My brothers hooked up Mum's old ironing board to the back of Dad's tractor and drove round and round an empty paddock for hours on end. Of course this was decades before OSH when kids could make their own fun. They had a wonderful time and could only drive the tractor fairy slow or the 'rider; would fall off the ironing board. I never tried it because I was a girl and girls weren't allowed to do things like that.

Looking to do large scale pruning jobs AFTER lockdown

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.

MANAWATU COUNCIL CONTINUE BULLYING INTO LOCKDOWN

Dear Neighbors. As we start our new normal for the next few weeks I wish you all the best.

For those that are following my story I would like to publicly share the latest bullying move from the Manawatu Council.

A supporter of mine, who wrote to try an offer an olive branch to MDC received a response from Michael Ford that they see the issue differently.

Which issue is this?
That a recycling center - a commercial activity was placed on my fence with no resource consents.
That it affected my mental health so badly they had to move the glass (wrote that they would move the lot).
That Building inspector Tony Kellerman jumped over my locked gate went all around my property opening doors and inside a building where I have my personal belongings. This was unlawful according to Building Act S226. When inspecting a home unit, this includes land and group of buildings, the inspector must show his identification and have permission from the home owner or a court order. He had neither.
I was then issued a Notice to Fix (unattainable conditions so basically an eviction notice)

19th of March I wrote to Mayor Helen Worboys and Michael Ford requesting their view of the issue. I received no response from either person.

I did though receive a letter dated 19th of March (the same day) regarding my swimming pool. This is FOUR MONTHS after Tony Kellerman inspected my property, even mentioning the pool. As my pool is over 1.2m high it does not need a fence, the pool ladder was up and there was nothing around the edge to get up on. We are going into winter - swimming time is over!

To receive this letter now, at this time of uncertainty, shows the level of bullying and abuse of power of MDC. While they are not held accountable for their actions, they have plenty of ratepayer $$ to spend on $500 an hour lawyers to try and make me homeless. All I can do is publicly share the ongoing bullying of MDC.

Thank you dear Neighbors for your ongoing support.

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.
