A school caretaker of 20 years will be retiring at the end of the year to take up fishing and golf, and a 12-year-old dancer from Papamoa has been selected to be a dancer in Auckland Theatre Company's Billy Elliot The Musical. These are just two of the stories making headlines around the regions today.

Westbrook School's caretaker of 20 years will retire at the end of this term, giving him the chance to focus on fishing and golfing.

From Papamoa to the big city - one 12-year-old girl is chasing her dream of musical theatre after catching a break when she was selected to be a dancer in Auckland Theatre Company's Billy Elliot The Musical.

Relocating part of Te Mata Mushrooms from its Arataki site has been suggested as a "win-win" solution for the issues plaguing the company - from odour problems to recent speculation about its link to the gastro outbreak.

Whangarei woman Candice Kemp says with streaming services like Netflix giving punters the opportunity to binge watch television shows, it's no surprise broadband usage in the region has soared.
