Dear Canterbury and the West Coast - ANZAC Day will look a little different for us this year - however there are many ways for you to acknowledge the incredible men and women who have served our communities and given their lives for our country.

We invite you to share a memory or photo to commemorate this special day on Neighbourly below. It could be a story of a member in your family who served - or perhaps the way you and your family celebrate ANZAC Day each year. (It might even be a photo of your freshly baked can't be-beaten ANZAC cookies).

We also invite you to take part in Stand at Dawn and join us at 6:00 am on Saturday 25 April. Stand at your letterbox, at the front door, in your lounge rooms, balconies, in your driveway. Wherever you are in the world, stand with us and take a moment to remember our fallen – but please stay within your ‘bubble’.

Resene is proud to be supporting the 17th annual NZ Art Show - this year with a twist! More than 150 emerging contemporary artists are set to inspire any art collector in this dynamic virtual exhibition.

Glass works by the talented Richard Landers (a crowd favourite at last year’s show) also feature, alongside contemporary photographic works, exquisite and traditional watercolours, gorgeous florals, and artworks that provoke thought and conversation.

Go to artshow.co.nz where you can browse and purchase hundreds of original artworks all from the comfort of your own home from May 1st. Show your support and help keep the arts alive and active in NZ!

I recently posted about the above Bill referendum which will be one of two referendums in the upcoming general elections. There were some excellent responses - both for and against which clearly demonstrated there are 2 sides of strong opinions which is democracy in action.
After this exercise, I was feeling uncomfortable as so much of the proposed referendum somehow didn't seem right plus it was contradictory. I couldn't actually put my finger on why I was thinking like that, but yesterday in the Press I read an excellent article by Deborah Stevens & Lynne Bover which provided me with the lightbulb moment and clearly answered what I was feeling. In today's Press letters there is a reinforcing letter written by Dr. David Mitchell of St. Alban's agreeing and commending the 2 ladies and giving his opinions based on evidence and his personal experiences. I recommend that you read the article and letter to the Editor for a different slant on the proposed referendum. In my opinion, they have hit the nail on the head but I would like other viewpoints.
