Think Papanui’s curator Simon Britten rounds up stories from the past week (which has understandingly been dominated by COVID-19):
Top post of the week was the news last Saturday that all Council community facilities were closing until further notice.
The only non-COVID-19 story of the week concerned last Sunday’s night closure of QEII Drive.
I linked to a Newshub story on last week’s Community Board meeting.
The Council assured us that essential services would continue to be provided while the city is in a Level 4 lockdown.
I shared news from Northlands Shopping Centre as we approached Level 4.
The Council met on Tuesday to determine governance arrangements during the COVID-19 emergency period.
I shared outcomes, minutes, and the live video from last week’s Community Board meeting.
Think Papanui’s ‘subscribe for a chance to win’ mailing list promotion is continuing, although winners may have to wait to utilise their cafe-voucher prizes.
Northlands Shopping Centre has posted details of opening hours and access arrangements for essential services still operating under the Level 4 alert.
The ‘teddy bear hunt‘ underway around New Zealand has arrived in the Papanui area also.
