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.

Fortnightly Rubbish Collection to Reduce NCC Rates

Angus from Hospital Hill

There are just 3 days to sign up for fortnightly collection of your new wheelie bin.
NCC has not promoted this option.
Go to this website
www.napier.govt.nz...
You will need the 7 digit code stencilled on the side of your new bin. Then follow the prompt on the website.
You will then get an email showing collection days.

NCC claims they want got reduced rubbish waste, yet they have made fortnightly collection incredibly difficult.

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.
