Maree Roberts is a self-confessed workaholic, so when she decided to pack in a demanding career as a business development manager she needed something to fill in her time.
Roberts has lived in Kaiapoi for 30 years, and lost her first home in the Canterbury earthquakes.

Perinatal Wellbeing Canterbury operations coordinator Erin Manning said the service offered peer support to women from conception onwards.
Most women felt overwhelmed at some stage during pregnancy or with a baby, or screaming toddler to deal with, however Manning said this could lead to anxiety or depression if not dealt with.
The North Canterbury group will be established at the Kaiapoi Coastguard building and volunteers are being sought. To offer your services as a North Canterbury volunteer visit the Perinatal Wellbeing website.
