Waitaki shares memories from Lockdown


​​You stayed home and saved lives during an extraordinary time for our country and we think the memories created are something worth preserving. We were inundated with amazing entries for our Memories from Lockdown competition, unfortunately we could not include them all.

After deliberating, the judges decided on 16 winners in four categories and age groups - each winning a $100 voucher to support a Waitaki business. 

We published a collection of entries in a special commemorative lift-out in the Oamaru Mail on the 26 June as a Time Capsule - a snapshot of life in the Covid-19 Lockdown of 2020. Read it here:

The individual items in the publication represent just a few of the many, many experiences that people had during the lockdown. We hope this will be something that is kept, to be brought out in future years, so we can look back and remember that very unusual event caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.​
