Update on orthodontics during Level 3

Courtenay Orthodontics

Hi everyone. At 11.59pm Monday 27 April New Zealand will enter COVID-19 Level 3 lockdown. For the orthodontic and dental sector, however, this does not mean that we will be back in business. As you'll agree, it's quite hard to have your braces adjusted in a contactless manner - one of the core provisions of Level 3. So, for now, please continue as you were under Level 4 - check out our website for instructions on emergencies (including what we can and can't do under this lockdown level), tips and advice, and information on how to get additional elastics or wax (which we can provide in a contactless manner). Stay safe everyone!

Things that surprise Kiwis returning to NZ

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

South Coast weather

Werner from Newtown

I know, most people like sunshine and blue skies. For me as a photographer, however, the strong winds and waves of the last few days are much more interesting.
Here a few images from along Princess Bay to Owhiro Bay, during the last 2 weeks
