Message From Dave Sanders - Civil Defence Community Co-ordinator for Karamea and Little Wanganui.
Our local CD Team has been asked to help out our community in delivering shopping/food to our over seventies and anyone else who need this support including those with medical conditions.
This is not a Civil Defence National Emergency Plan nor is this a specific direction from Civil Defence NZ it is instead an opportunity as a local CD Team to support our locals who may need this service.
We have made arrangements with Jason and Juliette James (4 Square) to pick up phone/email orders and deliver these throughout our area.
All you need to do if you need a food delivery is to contact 4 Square place your order and between 2pm and 4pm each day and we will deliver your food/shopping order to your front door.

This delivery service will commence from this Wednesday (25th March).
If you have elderly neighbours please pass on this message or anyone else who you think might need this support.
Of course many will have younger family members and neighbours to assist with shopping needs for some of our older/medically compromised locals which is awesome but our community wants to make sure everyone is supported so please don't hesitate to use this service.
Also if you want to volunteer in helping your local Civil Defence Team in providing this delivery service then please contact me.
