Still time to Holla for your Hometown

There’s still time to vote your town best in the nationwide Holla for your Hometown competition, which closes on Friday 7 November.

Taupo and Opotiki were neck and neck last count and while Taupo has population on their side, Opotiki has bucket loads of community spirit.

The nationwide competition has been running for five weeks, with entries from places as far flung as Eketahuna, Scott Base in Antarctica and Riverton, Southland.

The competition, which will reward New Zealand’s most loved town with its own t-shirt design is set to finish on Friday 7 November 2008.

People can vote for town online at www.billitees.co.nz

With just one vote per email address, townsfolk need to encourage their neighbours, postman, diary owner, Grandma and school to vote to be in to win. One town, whose residents wanted the title so badly that they set up several fake email addresses to use to enter has been eliminated.

If your town wins, you will be crowned New Zealand’s most loved and receive your own t-shirt design, which will be presented to your mayor in a bang-up afternoon tea.

As well as the framed design presented to you, the first 30 people who
voted for the winner will get a free t-shirt. Everyone who voted for the winning town will receive a discount on that t-shirt and an invitation to the handover ceremony, with pink lamingtons and more giveaways.

Gordon Campbell: On Why Labour Isn’t Responsible For Barnaby Joyce

As a desperate Turnbull government tries to treat the Barnaby Joyce affair as a Pauline Hanson fever dream – blame it on the foreigners! We’re the victims of the dastardly New Zealand Labour Party! – our own government has chosen to further that narrative, and make itself an accomplice.

Evidently, the National government is similarly desperate for anything that might discredit or derail the Ardern juggernaut, even if that means throwing Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dunne under a bus More>>
