NZ Lifestyle Block Testimonials

“Any owner of a small block or farm who fails to have a subscription is missing out on a valuable resource.”

– David Dransfield, Hawkes Bay

“I’m really enjoying my subscription to NZ Lifestyle Block, so much more to your magazine than just articles about chickens!”

– Sue Wilson, Glenhope

“I missed the March edition due to my subscription finishing/starting with Flybuys so that I couldn’t wait for the next one, and I must say it worth the wait. Thank you for your efforts, it was a great read, especially the article about the amazing school up north. How exciting it is to see practical learning at its best.”

– Tracey Musson, Bombay

NZ Life & Leisure Testimonials

“I love magazines and paper, and often rip out pages to use the headlines, words, and pictures. In my mind, paper is created to be loved and used, and my NZ Life & Leisure magazine gets a good workout! I use pictures, headlines, and words in my scrap-booking, and if I think of someone as I am reading, I tear that article out and post it to them. My issues become torn and ragged items, and that gives me a wonderful sense of achievement and joy. Thank you for the high-quality content of both articles and advertisements. I love the magazine.”

– Alison Campbell, Katikati

“My daughter shouted me a subscription to NZ Life & Leisure for my birthday in November, so I eagerly awaited the first issue to arrive which it did just before Christmas. As it was Christmas Eve, I thumbed through it oh so quickly intending to relax with a glass of wine and enjoy it later. However with family descending and prep for the big day taking over the quiet time with my new “mag” went on the back burner. “Oh,” said my daughter “I haven’t read that’ and swoop it disappeared to the bedroom. On departure day the comment was made “I haven’t finished reading it yet mum can I take it home and return it later?” So off my new mag went to Napier. Two weeks later when I travelled to Napier to housesit for her, I finally got to enjoy my new well-read copy of NZ Life & Leisure. And what a joy it was full of interesting stories and articles, recipes and information. I shall look forward to the following issues but won’t be so forthcoming in advertising the fact until I have read each issue from cover to cover and then, and only then, am I willing to share this lovely magazine with anyone.”

– Carol Eales, Te Kuiti
