Where is "local" for you?

A 3.3K/5W resistor won't work all that long.  The 22K 1W resistors should be OK.

Thanks. Sorry, I missed that this had gone on to the 2nd page.

I’m in Melbourne, Australia and we’re still in a pretty strict lockdown so very few options that don’t involve 4 week shipping.

By “not that long” Are we talking seconds, days or weeks?

You could series-parallel wire four 3K 5W resistors to replace each single 3K 10W. Messy looking and cumbersome but it would not burn up like a 5W would.
