Whānau, the weather is getting colder.
We know you feel it. When a southerly hits, people come together and we are reminded of how important that togetherness is. So it’s time to get your firewood ready, make sure you’ve got enough blankets, get the winter clothes out. And check on your kaumātua! REMEMBER: Online shopping IS AVAILABLE for essentials like warm clothes and bedding. Civil Defense can also help provide those things if you get caught out.
