Has there been a trip that you continue to think about years later? Where did you go, with who and what did you get up to? What made it such a stand-out experience? As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it included in a travel article. Cheers.

Stoke Banking Hub - will you be using it?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Stoke Banking Hub opened on Thursday, filling the gap KiwiBank and Westpac left behind. The hub is on a one-year trial and amongst three other regional hubs around the country. Will you use it, and do you think it's a good idea?

What do you remember about your teachers from primary school?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

We're looking to write a fun story about what teachers got away with back in the day before the 90s made much of it taboo. I had a teacher who would dangle naughty kids out the window by their feet, and one leathery old teacher who would get her favourite students to rub her feet while reading us a story. What were teachers doing back in your day they wouldn't be able to do now? Please, only things we can look back and laugh at. You may be contacted or your comment used in print.
