Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Poll: Covid-19: Do you scan a QR code or sign a sheet when entering a business?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Tuesday neighbours,

Many people have come forward saying their phone can't scan a QR code and many businesses have gotten rid of sign in sheets, leaving them confused with what they're supposed to do when they enter a business.

Are you one of these people? I'd love to hear from you, please email me at jake.kenny@stuff.co.nz

If you have been to a business that has no QR codes OR sign-in sheet, please also let me know via email or in the comments.

Thanks in advance for your help.
