Today the Prime Minister announced a 4 level alert system for the Covid-19 pandemic response. We are now at Level 2 which recommends high-risk people stay at home. That includes those over 70 and with health problems.
In light of that, and given that things are unlikely to return to ‘normal’ very soon we have cancelled both the Easter and Queen’s Birthday committee meetings.
We have also cancelled the anticipated hard rubbish collection.
We recommend that you keep an eye out for neighbours who may need help, take walks in the fresh air, but give people space, and reach out if you need help yourself.
Many councils around NZ are closing facilities like libraries and swimming pools — we’re very lucky to have a largely empty beach as our playground.
A couple of other items of interest:
- The recycling station has been removed. Before next summer we want to discuss with the community what might happen next year.
- A ferret was seen yesterday at the north end of Reay Mackay Grove. If you have pest traps then please make sure they are baited up.
- Remember there’s a recycling calendar on the right-hand side of the front page of the WBRA website.
