First home buying stories wanted

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Hi everyone! I'm Kylie, a Homed reporter. We're looking for people who have fairly recent, interesting, unique or off-the-wall stories to tell about how they bought their first homes. Did you move away from your home just to find a more affordable property? Did you scrimp and save for years to get a deposit together? Perhaps your family chipped in to help get you on the ladder? Are you older and buying for the first time? Did you choose to move into a home with a friend or another couple to make it more affordable? Please let us know in the comments below, or drop me a line in the messages. Your comments my be used in a story, but we'd also be interested in chatting to you for an exciting project coming up!

Summer tourism forecast warming up for Nelson

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

The forecast for Nelson’s tourism sector is starting to look more promising in the lead-up to summer.

Campgrounds have been reporting big increases in demand for the Christmas/New Year period, although other accommodation providers were having to adapt to a less structured domestic market.

Tahuna Holiday Park operations manager Peter Fraser said the domestic market was “off the hook” this year.

“We are chokka at Christmas time, and even the shoulder periods are filling up – it could be one of the best summers we’ve had for a long time.”

Fraser said while Tahuna was always a popular destination for holidaymakers, the demand for accommodation had picked up a lot earlier.

He said while most of the people coming to Tahuna were from the same places as usual, such as Christchurch, the effect had been amplified this year.
