New Year Honours: North Shore's Dame Anne Salmond awarded New Zealand's highest royal honour

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Shore Times

How does one sum up a distinguished career upon being awarded New Zealand's highest royal honour?

“It’s always been this huge adventure,” Dame Anne Salmond says of her career as an anthropologist, environmentalist and multi award-winning author, unable to settle on a particular highlight.

Salmond's work has been recognised with a multitude of awards and honours.

Despite this, Salmond, a resident of Stanley Point, said she was stunned and overwhelmed to receive a letter telling her she had been named a Member of the Order of New Zealand for services to New Zealand in the 2021 New Year Honours.

When is our "leader gonna harden up"?

Kenneth from Northcote Point

So, once again we go into a lower level of "lockdown"?? I hate the term "lockdown"...it sounds like a communist word...however, when is our public going to get angry and start making our "government" harden up? I don't think fines work....it's quite easy... feel sick, stay at home...

Are you struggling to find a rental or buy a home in Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hello everyone,

I was hoping to get in contact with someone from the Māori, Pasifika and Indian community who have either struggled to find a rental or buy a home.

The housing crisis has affected all three groups particularly badly, so if there's anyone who comes from these groups who is willing to talk please drop me a message: ged.cann@stuff.co.nz

Thanks,

Ged Cann
