Trading/swapping/gifting during lockdown.

Gina from Swannanoa - Ohoka

Hi everyone, I hope everyone is staying safe and well in their 'bubbles' during this uncertain time.
Our grandparents and for some of you, parents, endured uncertain and far more dangerous times during WW2. Rationing of everything, the' make do and mend' mantra that one was constantly reminded to do, 'dig for victory' where flower gardens and grass in parks and private gardens was given over to produce veggies. We are by no means at any of those stages where we dont have access to food, its just the getting it thats the problem for some. Which brings me to my point, one which i struggle with personally but its in the best interests of everyone and that is trading, swapping, gifting , whatever you like to call it, of excess fruit and veggies, toys, puzzles, etc etc. While its a lovely kind thought to share with others, it also brings about the possibility of sharing the very thing we're trying to eliminate, the virus. We have been told to socially distance ourselves from others , to sanitise, wash our hands, practice good cough and sneeze etiquette. If we fail to isolate to minimise the transference of this virus we will be in lockdown for longer. So please, please please, stay at home in safety with your families, dont go out to pick up items from others, dont put essential service personnel in danger by having an accident while you're out and about because youre desperate for ping-pong balls or veggie seedlings. Those things can wait. Order online. There are many more websites that are opening up to provide essential items. Phone those who dont have the internet and place an order for what they need for them perhaps. Go home, stay home and do your bit by helping everyone else stay safe too. Together we can all beat this!

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Are you OK?

The Team from Canterbury Police

Your emotional and mental wellbeing is important. It is normal to feel stressed or lonely when self-isolating, but there are some things you can do to feel better.

Even if you are not sick you may be feeling anxious about COVID-19. This is normal.

Reach out to your family and whānau, friends and workmates. Sharing how we feel and offering support to others is important.

We want to remind you that if you or someone you know is struggling right now, there is free help available.

Kia Kaha Aotearoa.
