Messages of Kindness

We are proud of our strong community spirit and in times of struggle and insecurity as we navigate through the Covid-19 pandemic, kindness is an incredibly powerful gift.

Our Council staff have continued to work throughout the lock down and following Alert levels and we want to share how we have adapted to a new way of working while still maintaining our Council services.

We have also received many messages of thanks and support for us and other groups in our community. We want to celebrate these too and showcase the wonderful messages of kindness with you all.

Thank you to all essential workers, volunteers, business owners, whānau and especially to you who have sacrificed for the health and safety of New Zealand.

These images are a combination of Council staff and community members in our District uniting as one to eliminate the Covid-19 Pandemic.
He waka eke noa. We are all in this together.

If you would like to add your own message email us at: with Messages of Kindness in the subject line and will celebrate with you.
