Hi neighbours,

Flights from Auckland to the other main cities have continued as normal since the Auckland region moved to Covid-19 alert level 3 and the rest of New Zealand moved to alert level 2 on Sunday.

Some 108 flights departed Auckland Airport on Monday, including 15 to Christchurch, 14 to Wellington and seven to Queenstown.

Those travelling during the weekend included about 2000 Aucklanders who were in Christchurch for the city’s largest outdoor music festival, Electric Avenue.

Microbiologist Siouxsie Wiles said anyone travelling from Auckland needed to take their level 3 restrictions with them because they could unknowingly be incubating the virus.

Big shout out to Spillanes Trading Co in auckland.
Stockists/warehouse of Zip products etc

Zip hand blender, used a dozen times for soups and sauce making only and it started to smoke...big time. Quickly putting outside when it did lol
Briscoes purchased but no replacement offered as outta warranty which expected. Only 18 months old.
Contacted Spillanes as was concerned there was a faulty batch out there.
Very fast reply and replacement sent. No questions, hesitation or excuses.
Sent back the faulty one as requested so they can investigate the cause. Even offering to pay the $7 for postage.
Not many companies around these days that are willing to replace outside of warranty without a hassle.
Big thanks guys. Next batch of sauce tomorrow 😋

Christchurch’s council is rolling out three new trials to help mitigate a flurry of complaints about the effects of the city’s newest motorway.

NZTA principal project manager Brendon French said so far they have heard from 30 people who are finding the new Christchurch Northern Corridor louder than expected. Congestion has also been an issue, with cars backed up along Cranford St in morning peak traffic.

From Monday, peak-hour bus priority lanes will be installed on Cranford Street between Innes Rd and Berwick St on a trial basis, and cars travelling down Westminster St cannot turn right in or out of Francis Ave. From March 8, Thames St will be trialled as a cul-de-sac.

Read more here and tell us what you think of the new motorway in the comment below.

We want March to be all about celebrating the connections we have while making new ones along the way. As we all know, what makes a neighbourhood great isn’t the houses and cars, gardens and streets - it’s the people who share their presence and aroha with each other.

A wonderful way to take part is to participate in Neighbours Day Aotearoa which takes place from 20 - 30th March. This year’s theme is ‘The Great Plant Swap’ - as an easy way for our neighbourhoods to grow stronger together. If you’re hosting an event, make sure to register it on their website: neighboursday.org.nz/join-in

SNOWFLAKES in February in North Canterbury

Sandi from Hurunui District

Whats wrong with our men in north Canterbury? Are they all snowflakes? Afraid to get their hands dirty?

Are they all snowflakes? Afraid to get their hands dirty? A young lady in Amberley Countdown carpark on Saturday had a flat tyre and whilst she was trying herself to get the nuts off they had been put on by machine and no amount of jumping up and down on the tyre tool could get them undone. She had asked a couple of young guys for help.. to no avail.. they were in a rush they said.... as they sauntered off into the shops! She was just about in tears when along came a knight in shining armour who helped her out getting tools from his car to get the nuts undone and then helping her get the tyre off and the new one on.. This man could hardly walk himself and struggled to get one knee on the ground to do the job.. whilst other young men walked by them. How do I know this? because this knight was my husband heading towards 70 years of age with a heart condition and in need of a hip replacement. Yet HE still managed to stop and help whilst all the snowflakes walked by. The age of chivalry is not dead BUT the younger generations need to step into the shoes of the older ones to carry on being MEN. So to all you snowflakes out there it is not that we women cant DO things it is sometimes just a matter of strength. Policemen used to help with these sort of things but they are too busy giving people speeding fines to be real policemen looking after the people . So come on YOUNG men show us you have some balls, it was just a nut that needed undoing she wasnt asking for a kidney ! So I will say THANK YOU to my husband for his kindly deed even if he was in pain for the rest of the day
