Washing chicken doesn’t remove bacteria, it just spreads it around. The best way to protect your whānau from getting sick is to wash your hands and kitchen tools after touching raw chicken, and make sure you cook chicken all the way through. Juices
should run clear and there shouldn’t be any pink meat in the centre.

Will you still walk the hills and take the risk, or will you take fire danger seriously?

Earlier in the week, the Mountain Bike Park and all of the Wither Hills Farm Park, except for the lower tracks, were closed due to a high fire risk.
The fire danger has now reached the ‘Extreme’ level, and residents are being urged not to enter the closed areas and use only the Lower Farm Track, Mapp Track, the town boundary or Taylor River Reserve tracks.
Will you adhere to the advice, or will you disregard closure signs and walk the hills anyway?
Do you think the closures are unnecessary?
What alternative walks will you take?
