Police puppy named: Auckland

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Police asked and you responded.

Members of the public have helped to christen Auckland Police's new puppy Etu.

Police appealed to the public last week for suggestions for a name starting with E for their latest canine recruit.

People were quick to come up with names.

Echo, Ernie, Eddie and Ezra were top contenders but officers were taken with the name Etu.

Rare white and yellow pōhutukawa trees

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours. Our beautiful red pōhutukawa trees (or New Zealand's Christmas trees) are just about in full bloom.
However, not all pōhutukawa trees are red. Have you seen any yellow or white pōhutukawa trees in your local area? We'd love to see your photos. Feel free to leave a photo in the comments or email me the tree's location at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz

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 Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article.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.
