Hi folks,

The council has just issued a release which reads in full:

From tonight, the Kāpiti Coast District Council will be locking vehicle access gates at those parks that have them, and the gates into cemeteries across the district to help reduce the risk of Covid-19 spreading in the community.
Kapiti Coast District Mayor K Gurunathan says Alert Level 4 means limiting travel within our district.
“The advice from the Ministry of Health and other Government agencies is clear. The best way to reduce the risk of exposure is to stay at home. Travelling further afield increases the risk of community transmission, and the length of time we may remain at Alert Level 4.
“While the gates to our parks and cemeteries will be locked to vehicle access people can still use them to get out for a walk, bike or run. But, we do ask that people keep their movements local and close to home and adhere to the 2 metre physical distancing rule,” says the mayor.
The council will also be locking access to the ten Council-owned tennis courts in the district.
“Playgrounds, water fountains, skate parks, basketball courts, tennis courts and shared recreation spaces pose a risk of Covid-19 spreading and people shouldn’t be congregating in these areas in close proximity.
We all have a role to play to make sure we have the best chance of stopping the virus and saving lives and we’re asking our community to show a little patience and kindness and to respect the rules.”

I remember people either visiting the gardens to buy direct or having a neighbourly co-operative where one or two persons would go to the gardens, purchase a large quantity of mixed bags for a set price, bring them back to the local community and add a small surcharge to cover transport costs. Perhaps this could be organised to minimalize contact yet become a win/win for all concerned. People could phone through an order for 1 or 2 bags and payment made through online banking. the collector/distributor could then transfer funds to the market garden, collect and deliver and the small surcharge would cover their cost.

I had an email from Countdown asking people to leave online shopping for the elderly and those with compromised health. This may be something some of us haven’t thought about.so just putting it out there.

Also, anyone know if there’s any coordinated effort to getting shopping and delivery done for vulnerable people? I am sure there are plenty of us who would be willing to help out in this way.

Keep safe and well.
