Hi Auckland,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.

One of our most popular projects for our Level 4 Advanced Cookery students is to design a three-course menu, costed to a budget and then prepared for a friend to savour.

The three-course menu includes a fish dish, involving the filleting of a fish, freshly made ribbon pasta and dessert - all with a Mediterranean theme. Take a look at this week's impressive efforts enjoyed by the Advanced students. They then serve the meal for their own guest and also get to sit down and eat with them.

Here are some photos of the creative dishes prepared for the Mediterranean Luncheon.

Please I just want to know if this is the usual insurance practice in NZ.

I use my car for my part time business. Before then I have a private vehicle comprehensive insurance on the same vehicle which cost around $50 a month....

Then I changed my insurance to a commercial/ business insurance which then increased my premium to $178 approximately 25% of my car value per annum according to their valuation.

Just before easter , a guy ran into my car and took off but I picked his rego. I immediately reported to the police. They took the details and directed me to my insurance.

Now STATE insurance insist I have to pay an excess of $1000 and also will loose my 40% non- claim discount. They also advise I chase up with the police and see what they can do. Is this supposed to be my duty running after a criminal. I believe they literally saying it's not their job to come up for me when I needed them but never forget to debit my account. Been with them for over 3 years with different vehicle and I'm planning to leave them cause I found them unreliable.

Please I just want to know if this is how things work with insurance.

Thanks
