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.

Poll: What do you think of the Provincial Growth Fund?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

This week Northland got another $30m in loans and grants from the Provincial Growth Fund (PGF), which aims to improve infrastructure and create jobs in the regions. But Labour is now saying it will axe the fund if re-elected, while New Zealand First says the $3b fund has done wonders this term. What do you think? Please explain your answers in the comments below.
