🎅🏼 Entries are now open for the 2019 Great NZ Santa Run!!
A 2-3km fun run/walk in a Santa suit!
Hazy skies caused by the Australian bush fires are set to linger this weekend.
Northwesterly winds have blown a hazy plume of smoke across the Tasman Sea, and while it has mostly affected the South Island in recent weeks, it has moved up the country.
The "robust plume" is expected to head to the South Island late on Saturday.
The haze has been causing a yellowish-orange, hue at sunset, making for some sweet sunset photos. Share your photos in the comments!

Hi neighbours, as you've probably heard and noticed, Lime and Wave e-scooters must be off the streets today. However, Flamingo is still operating its rental e-scooters in the eastern bays. Here's some more information about where you can find them.
Do you still use e-scooters? Are you missing Limes and Waves? Tell us in the comments.
After one year collecting baby clothes for charity, Littlemore, I’m now collecting any size kids clothes in any condition to fill a suitcase to send to Indonesia with a friend. She lives there and was telling me how the kids in her village have very little. So please message me if you’d like to drop off clothes that you’d usually take to the op shop. I’ll be collecting until my friend visits NZ early next year. Thanks!
