Sun Live freebie newspaper non-delivery

Adrian from Papamoa Beach

Non-delivery of Sun-Live freebie newspaper.

I live in Dickson Road Papamoa Beach, and even before the Covid-19 lock-down I have noticed that the Friday afternoon delivery of the Tauranga weekly news paper Sun-Live is no longer delivered to my letter box. I wonder how widespread this is occurring, and why it is occurring.



There is an ethical issue attached to this problem: local advertisers who are charged considerable amounts to place advertisements in this paper will not have potential customers able to see their adverts. So the advertisers miss out on business, locals miss out on hearing what services and goods are available, but the paper still keeps its advertising revenue flowing in.



If the reason is that there are no delivery girls, boy, or retirees available to actual make the deliveries, then maybe Sun-Live could up the amount they offer to pay these potential deliverers.

Things that surprise Kiwis returning to NZ

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
