DOES THE KAPITI OBSERVER CARE ABOUT KAPITI ??

Alan from Paraparaumu

Very frustrated this afternoon, to find out an event I am trying to promote in the "What's On" Column (Chess on the Blue Train), gets no mention. I appreciate space is limited and the editor has the final say, but when 9 out of 12 in the column are promoting events outside Kapiti,(7 in the Hutt Valley, including the Upper Hutt Chess Club!!) I am starting to wonder where their allegiances lie!!

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.
