The masked investigators

The Team from Wellington Water

200 meters off-road a stormwater sump overflows and makes a public walking track impassable.

A call goes out.

That call is answered. Tools are carried into the hills of Belmont, the sump cleared of blocked silt, and the track made safe again.

The masked investigators strike again.

If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.
