A friend from Wales was trapped in Gore during lockdown for several weeks.

Her full valid claim and explanation have been ignored and further contact seems impossible. Her timely request for an hotel refund from ExpediaNZ failed. ExpediaNZ must be making millions out of this process. It seems like fraud to me.
Here is part of their reply:-
"Thank you for getting in touch with us in regards to the booking for Roselands Motel. Please be informed that the voucher of 776 NZD has been issued to your registered account which will expire on 22 May 2021 and this is the best that we can do from our end.

Your co-operation and understanding is highly appreciated in this matter. "
A voucher, as was explained is clearly no use to her.
I would be interested if anyone else has been treated this way. Whenever possible I would always book directly with the hotel rather than any agent. Hotels do appear to honour refunds.

I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?

If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.

In New Zealand, business entertaining often occurs at drinks party events with elegant finger food hosted in the office reception or board room. The menu must be varied, with some vegetarian and gluten-free options and offer a mixture of fresh and crunchy palate-tempting snacks.

The Classic Club Sandwich remains one of these 'comfort dishes' that is ever popular but it needs to hold together so that the components don't slip alway and fall on your special jacket or silk dress.

As part of our Canapes and Drinks Party Cuisine module, we make a classic club with the test being - can you cut it in a triangle shape, on its side, and place on a platter, without the sandwich collapsing...
