■ To having so many amazing lakes to enjoy as the weather warms up. Lake Rotoma seemed to be enjoyed by many last Saturday afternoon. ■ To seeing lots of end-of-year updates about how well our youth have done throughout school this year. Congratulations to you all for making it through a tough year, and big congratulations to those who have won awards etc for their work during the school year. ■ To the Ngongotahā township, it's looking so beautiful with its hanging baskets of flowers. ■ To landmarks in Rotorua's city centre being lit up purple recently to shine a light on pancreatic cancer for the Gut Cancer Foundation's annual awareness day.
