Up and Runing!!

Gina Lawn from Whitby Cleaners Ltd

I imagine it is not very often you have your staff telling you how relieved they are to be able to get back to work! However, the team seem to be more than happy to be back into it, which is great.

However, the team seem to be more than happy to be back into it, which is great. I am taking that as a sign they are happy with their work and that we have done a decent job of looking after them and keeping them informed over the last 7 weeks of lockdown.

We are still in an Alert Level, we have our COVID-19 Safety Plan in place and must continue to be vigilant in keeping to the government guidance provided. Being cautious and respecting other people views is important, not just to continue to keep us all safe but also to show respect to everyone’s differing views about where each person is on their COVID-19 journey. Our team understand what is required to follow the Safety Plan to enable them to do their work and interact with clients.

There will be some catching up to do to bring our clients homes and offices back up to scratch. Some of our clients may notice the smell of burning elbow grease over the next couple of weeks!!

We have reminded the team that delivering a quality service must be at the forefront of their minds for every visit. And, we would like to remind our clients and prospective clients that you deserve a quality service, if you are not satisfied, we insist you communicate that, we stand by our 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you tell us we will put it right.

Be safe, be kind, have a good week.

Wellington's bars will reopen for the first time under alert level 2 on Thursday, and owners are praying for punters to come out in their droves.

Hospitality New Zealand Wellington branch president Matt McLaughlin is fearing for the future of the capital's bars.

"Courtenay Place which, to me, is New Zealand's premier entertainment precinct could be wiped off the face of the Earth in two months, which is really concerning."

There will be strict rules in place, with bar patrons seated, separated by a metre, and served by a single person.

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.

Can New Zealand do more to ensure that past, present and future service people - and their whānau – are recognised and supported?

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.

One Wellington student, Myles Eggers, was so excited he literally dragged his mother towards St Mark's School for his first day back. How has the move back to school and childcare been for you and your children? And was spending weeks stuck in lockdown with your kids a blessing or a curse?
