Support Services Map

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

To make it easier to find support and essential services during the Covid-19 lockdown, we have created an interactive, online Suppport Services Map and directory.
From grocery deliveries to welfare to financial support - you'll find it all in one place, along with contact info and the location of services in your neighbourhood.
Learn more at wgtn.cc... and share the map with anyone you know who could do with some extra support during this time.

Join us for lunch and some new ideas

Jo Haywood Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours, how are you finding life in lockdown? If you're looking for new ways to mix things up at home and in the garden, we can help!

Join us for a virtual lunch from 12.30 today (8 April), when NZ House & Garden and NZ Gardener editors Naomi Larkin and Jo McCarroll will be live on Homed to answer your questions, share their expertise and chat about your latest projects.

From repurposing items you already have to create a stylish new interior, to getting a steer on what you can sow and grow in the garden right now, here's your chance to get help and advice from those in the know.

And if you've already finished some home and garden projects during lockdown, don't be shy... show us what you've done. We'd love to see them! Click here and get in early to submit your questions and join in the fun. You can also email photos of your projects to: homed@stuff.co.nz.

Leaves building up? Grab the broom

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

The weeds are beginning to show between the cracks outside Te Papa. The flowers at Lady Norwood Rose Garden have seen better days. As the second week of lockdown comes to an end hints of a more-wild capital are beginning to show. Mayor Andy Foster has asked people to clear leaves in gutters outside their homes as council focuses on essential maintenance.
