I'd like to give a shout out to Decorum and Charleston Chic, both are in Napier, close to the Marine Parade. When the Art Deco Trust cancelled their Winter festival, these ladies (and some other locals) stepped up to create a replacement festival. There are people coming from out of town for this festival bringing money to accomodation providers, venues, bars, eateries and our shops. Both of these are small local businesses that sell wonderful clothes, accessories and other vintage treasures.

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.
Un-bear-lievable! Check out the awesome set up that won the AMI Kind Neighbour a couple of weeks ago. Have you got a neighbour you'd like to recognise? Nominate them here!
“I would like to nominate and THANK our great neighbour's living at Viv Davie Martin Drive for their creativity and huge effort during lock down. They lifted all our spirits with their daily Teddy bear reenactment on how to keep busy. Each day people came to see what Teddy bear was up to. With keen interest kids in our neighbourhood even gave Teddy a proper name...meet Vincent LOL! It's through times like this that such acts of goodness should be acknowledged and the memories they hold forever treasured. A selected few photos of Vincent's daily lockdown activities "thanks Vincent :)"
