Comedian's move to Covid-free sanctuary of North Canterbury

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Stand-up comedian Camille Solari has yet to decide whether her move from the lights of Los Angeles to the paddocks of North Canterbury was her best idea ever.

She and her partner Hamish Dean, originally from Woodend, made the rather rash decision to uplift themselves and their daughters, 3 and 6, from their lockdown life in LA last year.

The larger-than-life American is not likely to blend into the background at the local farmers market, but she is embracing her new Kiwi life – and so far still has her sense of humour intact. Read more here.

We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern Outlook

Hi Canterbury,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used in the Northern Outlook.
