Neighbours Day Roadshow - we were in your neighbourhood!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

Day 6! We started leg two, flying into wellington where we held our first workshop at the magical Innermost Gardens in Mt Victoria, a great, fun bunch, with some amazing ideas. We headed to Paekakariki for lunch and zoomed on to Palmerston North to meet with some local communities like Awesome Awapuni residents who put together the Raleigh street reserve, and the Roslyn REACH crew putting on wacky water days. Thanks so much to Julia from Palmerston North City Council for showing us these amazing neighbours!

Amazing day yesterday, we were out on the road. We started in Palmerston North, at Hancock house for a wonderful workshop. Next we zoomed on to Masterton, for another amazing workshop. Such amazing people!

Are you OK?

The Team from Wellington District 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.

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

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.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.
