Te Hononga is Kawakawa's latest Hundertwasser creation. This memorial park was opened in October 2020 by a local politician, Willow Jean Prime. It's main purpose is to be a community hub which includes a public library, council service centre, public toilets and showers, an art gallery, interpretative centre, community workshop and expanded car parking.

Speaking of which we are waiting to see if our region comes out of level 4 lockdown today, fingers crossed. Because I am a healthcare worker I am one of the few services that is still allowed to be out and about visiting my clients. From what I understand the officials are waiting for more tests on the wastewater around Northland to remain clear, fingers crossed we are still clear. Now I read yesterday that a new variant of Covid has been detected in South Africa
, it makes me wonder if it is just going to get keep on getting worse and worse. All we can do is our best to keep each other safe.
The areas south of Auckland including Wellington (which is surprising as they had positive cases) went into level 3 on Tuesday night. It has been mandatory to wear masks in public and so far from what I've seen most people have been pretty good in wearing them although I've seen the odd one or two not following this rule. When I was waiting in line at a supermarket the elderly were being encouraged to go ahead of others, a good sign of respect. So far our numbers are going down nicely and it appears we have yet again been quite fortunate.
The officials seem to have been quite onto it again as we went into lockdown fairly quickly, no warning at all and they have discovered it probably originated from one particular MIQ facility.
Linking up with Skywatch Friday.
