Nominated by Jake De Geest from Whangarei: "My nomination is for Engraving Systems in Whangarei. Wayne and Kate (the owners) have been trying to support all the locals' sports clubs and businesses with great service and going that extra mile to honestly help. Wayne is also an extroverted performer and has given his time to clubs and organisations in Whangarei free of charge to play music and MC events so they can get some money back into their coffers and stay afloat in a most difficult year. He really has brought some life back into the community and although he will disagree with me he should be acknowledged and rewarded for all the hard work he does."

A plan to offer Covid-19 vaccines to everyone over 50 in Northland has been called “a shambles”, as those over 75, who should have been high priority, cannot get a booking to get their dose. Last week, Northland District Health Board decided to buck Ministry of Health recommendations and open up its vaccine clinics to all over-50s. But with 73,000 Northlanders in this age group, it has been overwhelmed with demand, receiving an average of 50 calls an hour and more than 2000 emails to book an appointment. Have you had the same problems, or have you been able to book a vaccine appointment?
