Local Likes: Canterbury's favourite local businesses celebrated

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Friday neighbours,

Do you have a favourite local business that you'd like to share with us?

As part of Neighbourly and Stuff’s ‘Local Likes’ campaign, Cantabrians are asked to nominate their favourite local businesses, and share what makes them so great.

Receiving multiple nominations, Bohemian Bakery in St Martin’s has proved an early frontrunner for Christchurch’s top local entity.

The bakery has been lauded for having “the best sourdough in the city” and “the most divine vegan pain au chocolat.” Their salty pretzels are also a crowd favourite, and the staff are always good for a laugh.

Do you have a place you'd like to add? Please let us know below.

Have a good weekend folks. Jake

New Zealanders are locking down their cats, for good

The Team Reporter from The Press

Owners say welfare and conservation concerns are the main drivers; experts are cautious not to say too much, and cats are silent on the issue thus far.

What's worse — keeping a cat indoors 24/7, or letting it roam free where it will hunt birds, and possibly be injured?

Read the full story here and share your thoughts in the comments below.

Hi
Does anyone have a Sharp TV remote control surplus to requirements? I have a friend who needs one but can't afford the cost of a replacement. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

A tricycle that can buy

Hanaa from Shirley

Hi there,
My daughter has special needs and being advised to cycle every day by the physiotherapist .Unfortunately I can not cycle and she cycles within our area . Some kids they abuse her and make fun of her disability . Two weeks ago , two girls and one boy stopped her and were about to hit her . Luckly there was a police car going around and saved her and really these incidents occured many times . I just wondering if anyone has a tricycle for adults for reasonable price that I can buy to accompany her so I will be able to protect her while cycling.
