A total fire ban is in place for the Western Bay of Plenty covering an area stretching from Waihi Beach, Tauranga City, and extending to Raumakara Forest Park.

The prohibited fire season came into effect at 8am Tuesday due to extremely dry vegetation in the area. Principal Rural Fire Officer Steve Webb says that the district is not expecting any "significant" rainfall over the coming weeks.
"The prohibited fire season means you cannot light an outdoor fire in the Moana Western Bay of Plenty zone," he says.

What you need to know:
- You cannot light an outdoor fire.
- Gas and charcoal barbecues are permitted.
- Individuals that operate heavy machinery are advised to exercise caution when out in dry terrain. Fire crews advise to undertake work in cooler temperatures and in minimal wind.

Hi there,
Canterbury has been named the fifth most welcoming region in the world in the Booking.com Traveller Review Awards, while Oamaru, Hokitika and Invercargill have been named the most welcoming towns in NZ. They were followed by Cambridge, Picton, Lake Tekapo, Kerikeri, Palmerston North, Paihia and Twizel.
We'd be really keen to hear your thoughts on this based on your own travels around New Zealand. Do you think Canterbury is NZ's most welcoming region? And are these our most welcoming towns?
Where in NZ have you been made to feel particularly welcome on your travels?
As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it to be included in an article. Cheers.
