What do you think?


Did you know over a quarter of us who now call Aotearoa New Zealand home were born overseas? We have one of the highest populations of people born outside NZ in the OECD and collectively we speak more than 160 different languages.

We want to understand what you think about Aotearoa New Zealand’s increasing multicultural society and the benefits and challenges that it brings and to say thanks for completing the survey, you can go in the draw to win a share of prizes. T&Cs apply.

Marlborough moves into red

Jennifer Eder Reporter from Marlborough Express

The change in traffic light level has affected some upcoming events. The South Island Cheese Festival set for February 5 has been postponed, as has the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre's Mosquito Day that was set for February 12. The Crusaders versus Hurricanes game at Lansdowne Park will instead happen 'behind closed doors' in Christchurch, and the Waihopai Spy Base Protest has been cancelled for the first time since 1988. Elsewhere in the south, cancellations include Christchurch's Great Kiwi Beer Festival, Warbirds over Wānaka, and the New Zealand Masters Games in Dunedin. How are you coping with the move to red?
