What experiences have you had on the Cook Straight ferries?

The Team Reporter from Marlborough Express

Passengers on the ferries on Tuesday evening had a "marathon" trip as very high winds in the Picton harbour made it impossible for the ships to dock on time. Were you on one of Tuesday's ferries? Have you had a similar experience?

Were you on one of Tuesday's ferries? Have you had a similar experience? Have you had a particularly rough/frightening crossing? If you were booked to travel on Wednesday, did you experience huge delays?

How are you feeling about the alert levels?

Marlborough is currently at alert Level 2 until at least Wednesday midnight. How are you feeling? Do you have support if you're feeling anxious? How has the move to Level 2 affected any plans you may have had - travel, events or celebrations?

Remote computer support

Christopher from Create IT

It can be a bit scary with Covid alert levels going up again, although thankfully here in Marlborough it's only Level 2.

It can be a bit scary with Covid alert levels going up again, although thankfully here in Marlborough it's only Level 2.
Fortunately, if you have computer issues, as long as you can connect to the internet, you can get local help without having to call anyone out on site.
Team Viewer is a great tool for remote support, and as a bonus, Create IT has no callout fee, although I do have a minimum half hour charge for casual support, but if you need over half an hour of support per month, you'll pay for the actual time used to the nearest minute.
There's a link to a preconfigured version of Team Viewer for quick support at the bottom of this message. (You'll still need to call me on the phone.)

I can offer general software support for common software on Windows, such as Microsoft Office, email etc. I'm also familiar with free alternatives such as LibreOffice if you prefer to use that.
One of my big personal passions is photography, so I have an Adobe Creative Cloud photography subscription, and can help with the basics of Photoshop and Lightroom, and may be able to help with a variety of other photo editing software.

My hourly rate is maybe a bit high to use for training, but if you can get a few friends together, I also have Zoom, which is great for group tutorials via screen sharing, and I'm happy if several people want to split the cost.

Of course with remote support, it doesn't matter if you're not actually in Marlborough, but I do prefer to do work for people I could physically meet for a coffee, and it probably provides greater peace of mind to you too, if you're dealing with a local.

Bespoke volunteering because we're all different

Hannah Cunningham from Volunteer Marlborough

We recognise that people are different and,because of this, volunteering cannot be 'one-size fits all'. That's why we offer 'reverse recruitment'.⁠

Are you looking for a volunteering opportunity that is a little out of the ordinary? Or looking to use specific skills? ⁠

Maybe you've looked through the volunteer roles listed on our website and we just don't have what you're looking for at the moment?

This is where our Reverse Recruitment programme comes in. Reverse Recruitment is a FREE service that involves you sitting down with a VM staff member to talk about who YOU are and what YOU want to get out of volunteering. We ask about your dreams, hobbies, skills, passions, experience, future plans, etc. We then build a unique profile and send it out to our network of community organisations and groups so that we can find an opportunity that is tailored just for YOU!⁠ ⁠
