Favourite summer holiday spots

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.

Neighbourly Good Sort: Nurse Kerri Cooley

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

The Hawke's Bay DHB is celebrating the International Year of the Nurse & Midwife with a profile on Kerri Cooley.
"Surgical nurse director Kerri Cooley exudes warmth, intelligence, energy and passion – a combination that has served her well during her 40-odd years of nursing. Nursing wasn’t Kerri's first choice, but it turned out to be the perfect fit. Kerri’s love of people and clinical passion has seen her work across many specialties such as gerontology, surgical, paediatrics, district and public health nursing, but the machinery of the hospital environment kept drawing her back toward hospital placements – her specialty of choice being surgical nursing where she enjoyed 20 years on the shop floor before moving into more senior roles."
