Tēnā koutou i tēnei ahiahi kiritata,

The Government has banned events of more than 500 people to halt the spread of the COVID-19 virus, a measure that will hit an already bruised economy after sweeping travel restrictions last week.

Dan Boyd, co-owner of herbs and spices supplier Raptor Naturals, said the business has been rocked by the cancellation of the Central District Field Days and other significant shows.

It relies on sales from big events for 30 per cent of its revenue.

More than 600 stands will also lose out on the benefits of the event.

What businesses in your area are feeling the pinch? Do you think they will survive the outbreak?

Mōrena kiritata,

A 30-year-old woman is the second person in New Zealand to have a confirmed case of Convid-19.

She flew from Italy through Singapore to Auckland, jumped on another plane to Palmerston North on Monday and returned to Auckland on the same day.

She spent 5 hours in Palmerston North carrying the virus.

Some people have said she should have quarantined herself before travelling to the Palmerston North. Would you have done that?

Japonica Apples (Chaenomele japonica) or Japanese Quince

Fruit available for free. Used for making Japonica apple jelly, which is a delight on toast, but otherwise pretty inedible although I see Wikipedia says they are edible if bletted (half rotten). Pick up Roslyn Rd. 367 3410.

Panic buying

Mōrena neighbours,

Panic buying has been extensive, and has left shelves empty and car parks full. Super markets urge that there is plenty to go around and no need to stockpile.

Has this effected your normal weekly shop? Are there some times of the day best to avoid? Have you had to try another… View more

I appreciate the more rural environment it provides. But this benefit is negated by anger, the anger and disgust I feel towards the people who throw their fast food and drink containers out of car windows, not to mention a variety of other rubbish as well. I wish there was a way of putting an end to this behaviour but I can’t imagine how this might realistically be achieved. So anyway, this morning I planned to count the easily visible items of rubbish on one side of Roslyn Road between the 90 degree corner at the railway end to the Fairfield Road intersection and to take my phone to photograph a few examples. What I counted was only what was obvious without searching more closely into the long grass. The number was 375 items. I don’t understand how people think it is OK to do this.That they do do it only reflects a very low standard of social and environmental consciousness in our society for which the whole society must take responsibility. We all have had a part in creating these minds and attitudes. What next? Any suggestions?
