Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Why 2021 will be the year of the long weekend

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.

Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.

In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.

To find out how to get the most out of your annual leave next year, click here.

Annual Bookfair!

Community Activator from Red Cross - Waikato Service Centre

Hey Waikato👋 The annual Red Cross Book Fair that was set to take place on the first weekend of September at the Te Rapa Racecourse, will now be taking place on the 5-7 March next year.
In the meantime, we are looking to host a Pop-Up Bookfair in November - more details to be posted here in the coming weeks.

We are still taking book donations during this time up until the event. If you’re planning on a spring clean once the winter blues are over, you can donate your books that are gathering dust by dropping them off to our Hamilton Service Centre on Te Rapa Road.

We look forward to seeing all your wonderful faces and in the meantime keep an eye on our social channels for more updates. 📚
