It's in the box
Rosanne Turner is winner of the 2012 Christmas-themed Wairau Valley decorated mailbox competition, judged by postie Jock Conroy.
Mr Conroy enjoyed watching 20 valley residents join the Christmas spirit and transform their mailboxes with decorations ranging from tinsel and bells to snowmen and Christmas trees.
