Which 'summer' are you having?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

It's been a mixed summer so far for New Zealand. Much of the country has seen record breaking temperatures, drought-conditions and scrub fires. But in recent days the West Coast and Southland have experienced heavy rains, flooding, evacuations and closed roads. Our thoughts are with affected.

Our skies have been coloured by smoke blown over from the Australian bushfires, meanwhile Wellingtonians are just stoked if they get to see the sun.

How has your summer been?

Drive-In cinema opens tomorrow night...

Kate from Meadowbank

Looking for some covid-friendly, family-friendly/date-friendly fun? Check this out.... thedrivein.nz...

A dear friend of mine has turned a rancid Covid lemon into a huge serve of burgers and ice-cream for all of us...

(She’s not on neighbourly yet so I’m posting on her behalf)

Anna Hood and her business partner Vinnie Sherry, run Campbell+Co, an events business in NZ (Diner en Blanc, etc). Covid-19 has pulled the proverbial handbrake on their thriving business - as it has for so many businesses.

So … in a cool example of courage, innovation & quick action, Anna and Vinnie have launched Drive-In Cinema (thedrivein.nz...) at the ASB Stadium in Auckland, with sponsor AA Smartfuel.

Starting tomorrow, it’s 23 sessions across 10 days. You stay in your car, pre-ordered food is brought to you, contactless of course (Burger Burger and Ben&Jerry’s) and you get to watch a cool movie.

Go get those tix and support a local biz while getting your burger on
