If you were one those who turned to baking to get through lockdown - and even if you weren't! - thought I'd kick off by sharing the two most popular recipes on Stuff during those seven weeks: pull-apart hot cross bun bread, a recipe from Nicola Galloway, and cheese straws, a recipe from Sam Mannering. Let me know what you cooked in lockdown too.

Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park has been cancelled for the first time in 26 years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The free outdoor Christmas concert, usually attracts tens of thousands of Kiwi families at Christchurch’s Hagley Park and the Auckland Domain.

“Given the immense amount of planning and work involved in Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park, we’ve had to make the sad decision to postpone until next year due to the current uncertainty of Covid-19 restrictions around large public events," Annette Chillingworth, from Coca-Cola NZ, says.

Organisers are now looking towards how they could make the 2021 event "bigger and more spectacular than ever before".

Central Christchurch housing developers have received $13 million in rebates from ratepayers in the past six years.

The council is considering whether to continue the scheme designed to encourage post-quake residential development in the CBD or let it expire on June 30.

Developers are calling on the council to continue the scheme, especially if it wants to reach its target of increasing the central city population to 20,000 by 2028, but opponents say the rebate is propping up "wealthy developers" at the expense of ratepayers.

Read more here and tell us what you think of the scheme in the comments below.
