Letter from the Editors

We don’t know about you but it feels as if the year has gone past so quickly. What a year its been with flooding, crazy weather, the general election and we are now on the countdown to Christmas.

We hope the weather will be good over summer and it’s a great time for catching up on reading, socialising with family and friends. This issue we have some great suggestions from our local book stores.

A shout out to Paul and his team who are our cover stars this month – Thaiger has just celebrated its first anniversary – we offer our conratulations.

This month we have 12 pages of local fashion...Helene Ravlich, our local fashion scribe is excited and asks, “ready to embrace the warmer days and nights in style? Look no further than the work of many of our talented local creatives, who have released collections with long, lazy days and hot summer nights in mind...” Pictured is our fashion and beauty scribe with Jay and Martin.

People who know us appreciate we are big believers in holistic health and wellbeing, which is why we have invited Sarita, from Ayurveda NZ to be our new columnist.

Despite the drizzle it was nice to be able to enjoy the annual Grey Lynn Park Festival last month.

We'd like to say a big thank you to our loyal advertisers, friends and readers. Producing Ponsonby News each month is a team effort – your letters to the editor are always appreciated.

If you enjoy a night out for a show, we absolutely loved ‘Briefs Boys – Dirty Laundry’ at the Q Theatre – it’s on until 9 December. Merry Christmas everyone - here's to 2024!
