MEDIA RELEASE
The stars come out for Tauranga’s Love Local party

Tauranga, 17 June 2014 - Tauranga-born Shortland Street star Teuila Blakely is bursting with pride for the Bay of Plenty and can’t wait to meet her favourite Masterchef winners Karena and Kasey Bird at Localist’s Love Local Party this week.

The passionate actress is excited to be one of the special guests at the event, which takes place at the Tauranga Art Gallery on Friday June 20.

Stacking up to be a local night to remember, Teuila will join other well-known Tauranga fans including Mayor Stuart Crosby and Masterchef’s Karena and Kasey Bird. They will stand alongside the lucky winners who will have shared what’s great about Tauranga on Localist.

Teuila says she can’t wait for the chance to meet Maketu’s star sisters who were her favourite team from the moment she first watched them on the popular TV One reality show try their food and share her love for Tauranga.

localist.co.nz is the word-of-mouth
website that enables everyday Kiwis to share what’s great in their communities and provides a platform for local businesses and those doing well to shine.

Encouraging people to post personal recommendations from their region is all part of Localist’s drive to bring awareness to the global ‘Love Local’ movement that’s taking the world by storm.

“‘Love Local’ is about supporting those in your local community,” explains Localist General Manager Christina Sayers Wickstead. “It’s what Kiwis are already brilliant at. Localist simply provides the platform to make sharing the love seamless.

“Localist is the voice of the people it’s about popular opinion. Everyone can have their say,” adds Sayers Wickstead. “And for those using the site to find out what to do, it’s like having that friend who is always up with the play and knows where to go, wherever you go.

It’s fun!"

Anyone who registers at lovelocaltauranga.co.nz and shares something they love about the Bay of Plenty region will be in the draw for them and a friend to attend Localist’s party. Here at Localist, personal recommendations are called 'loves' and every love is an entry so there's no limits.

Have fun, love local!
