Keen for some music during lockdown?

Nicola Brennan-Tupara Reporter from Hauraki Herald

Hi neighbours,
Today is the beginning of our nationwide lockdown, so Operatunity is marking it with some music!
They plan to do it as often as they can through-out the four weeks, given they can't get out and about in the community.
They've rallied all the Operatunity artists to produce their own virtual concerts. Some footage is from their archives, some shot on phones and some was recorded before the lockdown.
There will be a variety of songs, singers and musicians over the next few weeks.
So if you want to check out today's one, head along to the link below.

What are your thoughts on the rates reduction?

Kelley Tantau Reporter from Hauraki Herald

Hi neighbours! Thames-Coromandel District Council this week announced that their proposed rates increase of 9.98 per cent was looking to reduce to around 4.98 per cent for the next financial year (2020/21).
Council said it managed to reduce capital and operational spending, largely due to Covid-19.
What are your thoughts on the cut? Are you pleased rates have been reduced? What would you like to see your rates spent on? We would love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to post them in the comments below!
