With many Kiwis' minds on chocolate this long Easter weekend, it's easy to forget that daylight saving ends on Sunday.

Brian from New Lynn

Early in the morning on SUNDAY, at 3am, clocks will jump back an hour to 2am. It's an extra hour of sleep, bringing with it brighter mornings and darker evenings.

This week, we were very happy to host a graduation luncheon for the students, families and friends of the Advanced Level 4 programme and Level 5 Diploma Chefs.

The Diploma chefs achievement comes after nearly TWO years of chopping, preparing and cooking and many tests and assignments and a bunch of hard work plus some serious determination and the privilege of remote cooking through FOUR Lockdowns!

The Advanced Level 4 chefs started in June 2020 and worked through their programme with only THREE lockdowns and remote cooking. Needless to say, we are delighted to be able to award these qualifications after what can only be described as a roller-coasted period.

The menu included Gratinated Snapper with mushroom, spinach with Sauce Hollandaise, Pigeon Bay lamb with corn, polenta, baked cherry tomatoes and basil and Crêpe with raspberry parfait and vanilla cream to finish.

Poll: Should all Auckland shops be allowed to trade on Easter Sunday?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Restrictions on trading over Easter have frustrated Auckland retailers desperate for business in the wake of four Covid-19 lockdowns.

Only shops selling certain goods can legally trade on Easter Sunday, and those breaching conditions can be fined up to $1000.

But Auckland Mayor Phil Goff says critics have left it too late, as the process to change trading rules can take over a year.

Local government has had the power to rule on whether retailers can open on Easter Sunday since the National government passed the responsibility down in 2016.

Prior to this, only shops that sell necessities, such as dairies, service stations, and pharmacies, were given exemptions to trade.

Thirty-nine of the country’s 67 councils have created bylaws to date allowing retailers to open if they want, but Auckland, Wellington, and other major centres remain opposed.

Newmarket Business Association chief executive Mark Thomas said the restrictions are “ridiculous and out of date”.

“There are so many discrepancies in the law it seems a bit ludicrous,” he said.

Relaxing, safe and effective.
I work with bones, the foundation of the body. I find the ones that are frozen, numb and heavy. They are the cause of the soft tissues around it getting overworked. I help the body release the pressure from those bones and return to the natural state. Results include less pain, improved movement, better posture, less anxiety, increased energy and more!
A session takes up to 1 hour and costs $40. I am available at the Henderson studio Mondays to Fridays between 9am and 8pm, and for mobile service (within 10 min drive).
Hope to see you soon!

Price: $40
