We need your help for a series we'll be publishing this summer. Tell us about the best things you can find in the South Island - ie the best place to walk your dog, best playground for kids, best place to stop for a swim, best toilets, best icecream/milkshake, or the best place to stop for lunch.
Share your favourite South Island spots and activities by commenting below (and tell us why you love them), or you can send us a PM or email firstname.lastname@example.org
A lack of adequate parking at North Canterbury's Mandeville Village retail complex could soon be fixed.
The first option is to occupy the adjacent reserve northwest of the shopping complex, with an entrance and exit off Mandeville Rd.
The second option is to establish parking further away, on the reserve across McHughs Rd. The same Reserves Act change would apply and it would provide 34 spaces.
The third option is to work with developers to create a car park on private land.
You can find out more about the proposals by reading the full story here and submit your feedback to the council here.
Wondering if this is the norm for the couriers. Small parcel from Auckland to Rangiora 7 days and still not here. Snail mail is faster. Emailed and asked where it is as the parcel finder hasn't been updated since it left Auckland. Emailed them no reply for 2 days and counting. Rang them and they said we will ring you back but didn't say this year ! Still no email, no phone call, no parcel. Sadly fastways need rebranding, maybe snailways lol
Are there any better couriers ? or is the normal.
Update.... They lost it. Sadly it's a $300 xmas gift. Hopefully they find it. Sender being a business is on to it and if not found by Friday will get a refund from them, and send another. Only hope they use another courier service.
Tis the season... let's help make other's holidays more merry and bright.
