Message from the mayor

mayor h and s

The move to COVID-19 Alert Level 2 this week is a great sign, and a chance for family and friends to come together again within the number limits.

A huge thank you to all of the amazing people who have continued to work and volunteer through this COVID lockdown. There are so many of you, from health workers to food growers, truck drivers to supermarket workers, posties to essential goods packers, and many, many more. You have made sure the essentials of life have been available for the rest of us and we appreciate it more than we can say!

While being in Level 2 means our council facilities can re-open, and we can further support our local businesses and cafes, we all need to be mindful to follow the Ministry of Health guidelines to keep ourselves and those businesses safe.

In these uncertain times we remain grateful that at this stage we have not got the COVID-19 virus in our community, but recognise that it can be a stressful time for many.

We look forward to when our businesses can fully open and when events that have been postponed can go ahead.

Take care, stay safe, and look out for each other – we’ve been through this before and our district recovered well, we can do it again!
