Swim during winter and win!

Hilton Brown Swimming

Swimming lessons during winter are key for your children to be able to enjoy their kiwi summers to the fullest. A break in swimming lessons can cause a student to stagnant or even go backwards with their swimming ability…and we want our students to continue to improve. All of our pools are indoor and the water is heated to a balmy 32 degrees – so it is nice and toasty and no standing in the rain!

At Hilton Brown Swimming we want to reward the families that swim with us during winter. If one person in your family swims and pays for lessons during the months of June, July and August you will go into the draw to win 3 months free swimming lessons (for September, October & November 2019) for your entire immediate family. There is one winner for each of our seven locations and they will be informed in August.

Our sweet pea seeds send out, April issue and Get Growing

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Dear neighbours and NZ Gardener family,

Our April issue should be with our subscribers now and available in supermarkets and service stations (having been distributed prior to the lockdown restrictions). Whether or not it's on the stands yet is a bit patchy ... but then the incredibly brave and hard-working supermarket staff have quite a bit on their plate right now so I understand if there is a delay! Please, please, please everyone ... don't go out to buy it! Normally of course we love you buying NZ Gardener but right now it's far more important that you stay home and stay safe. (You can buy a copy with your online shopping though! That's safe and I think we are all in the market for something uplifting to read right now).

In this issue we offered to send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who sent us a SSAE. Just to reassure you, we will still send out sweet pea seeds to any reader who is keen to participate. We are just not quite sure when! Ignore the dates in the magazine of when you needed to send the envelope in by - that has been indefinitely extended. But we cannot wait to send you the seed and for those flowers to bloom as by then we will be well through this or even have it behind us. And keep letting us know what you are sowing and growing, send in pictures of your harvest, your flowers or what you are sharing.

We always love hearing from NZ Gardener readers but now when we are all staying apart that connection means more than you can imagine. Stay home, stay safe and stay in touch everyone. For the most updated gardening advice, subscribe to our digital e-zine Get Growing, which will be delivered to your inbox completely free.

Who can and CANNOT SHOP

Norma from Helensville

I would love to have absolute clarity as to who must NOT go to the shops.It is my understanding that if your over 70 you are NOT allowed to go to the supermarket.Some of my friends think that's incorrect.Also shopping with your partner seems to be confusing .My son and his partner went shopping together (he was shopping for me and his partner shopping for her parents)They were not allowed in the shop together so my Son waited in the car before shopping for me.It would seem that some supermarkets aren't complying and I applaud new world for enforcing that rule.Countdown on the other hand have told me I'll be welcome to shop even though I'm in my 80s with already serious underlying health issues.Does anyone know for sure what is 100% correct?
Phew hope someone can help me do the right thing .I've no wish to be arrested lol
