Merry Christmas and happy new year from the team at The News.
Another year has come and gone.
We wish to thank all our readers, advertisers and the many people who have shared their stories, provided comment, contributed columns and allowed their photo to be taken over the past 12 months.
Without you, The News would not be what it is, so for that we are very grateful.
The News will return on January 9.
Until then, look out for our special combined holiday guide on December 27, which details everything there is to love about Central Otago and beyond.
Have a fun and safe Christmas and a happy new year.
If you wish to pass any news on to us or send photos email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to following it up on our return.
