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.

Transponder frequency change for BVN . Can you help?

Julie from Karori

I have an Optus D2 satellite dish so I can receive the Dutch/ Flemish BVN television broadcasts. Ever since they changed the transponder frequency I have no more reception. I do have the box plugged in and the remote and tried everything to change it but no luck. Is there anyone on Neighbourly who can do this for me? I will pay you for your time of course. I took a screenshot of the BVN website with details, but it does not mean anything to me. ( I know you can get BVN online, but I have the whole setup already and would like to use it.

What should the council do with Te Aro Park?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

A central Wellington park has become a magnet for “anti-social behaviour” with a new report detailing reports of drug dealing, violence, and sexual assault.

The Wellington City Council report, published, found “a consistent level of anti-social behaviour” at Te Aro Park on Wellington’s Golden Mile, which was higher than other central city parks.

Don't forget to change your clocks

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

New Zealand springs forward this weekend as Daylight Saving time begins.
Clocks will go forward by one hour at 2am on Sunday 27 September. Daylight saving time will continue until Sunday 4 April 2020, when clocks will go back by one hour to NZ Standard Time.

Most New Zealanders should experience a seamless transition, with modern electronic devices adjusting automatically. However, older devices may need to be adjusted manually.
Do not forget it is also a good time to check emergency plans, survival kits and smoke alarms.
