Yachts having a good time tonight….


did you know that other than just the sunshine our region is known for….we also get the odd breeze or two. Obviously these yachts out tonight found that out for themselves?

Random windsurfers just thrown in the mix for extra effect!

Tahunanui Outdoor Fitness Area, Nelson…



As if you needed another reason to love the place.


Devine Fitness Equipment, Fulton Hogan, Nelmac and Nelson North Lions Club are to be commended


and thanked for their foresight in giving Nelson such a fabulous array of outdoor exercise equipment….


… spread along the parkway near the road, and therefore readily accessible by everyone.

Nelson tops New Zealand in…

old cars per head nelson

….in ownership on per head basis of “classic cars."

An article in this weeks Leader alludes to the fact;

Nelson has the highest percentage of classic cars - which is cars that are at least 40 years old - per head of population in the country.

So its not surprising that the 9th Annual Nelson Car Show will be bigger than ever at its new location,


…ands its also not surprising that you can have a sort of Déjà vu moment many times while driving around the region?
