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.

DOGWATCH SHOP-can you donate goods

Joanne from Halswell

Hi everyone. My daughter was at the Dogwatch shop, said they were in need of donated goods household goods, clothes etc. She said the shop was busy but they definately are in need of donations. I would be happy to take anything you would like to donate, as their shop is in New Brighton, it probably is a bit far for most. You could drop off to me, or I would be happy to pick up. It is for such a good cause, Dogwatch do an amazing job, and I am not sure what happens to stuff after we put it in the clothing bins. Thanks for your time, Jo
