Throughout Kāpiti and further afield, including seat pockets of Air Chathams Kāpiti to Auckland aircraft, copies of the inaugural Celebrating Kāpiti magazine are appearing.

The glossy Kāpiti business and lifestyle magazine spring / summer edition was launched at the new Pram Beach restaurant, Paraparaumu Beach, on Thursday.

"It was a fantastic launch which was very well attended," NZME lower North Island general manager Vicki Timpson said.

"A lot of work went into creating the magazine and the result is absolutely stunning.
