Earthquake donations earmarked for Christchurch cenotaph removal

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The controversial relocation of Christchurch's Citizens' War Memorial has received financial backing for a proposed move to Cranmer Square.

The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust (CEAT), set up to administer post-earthquake donations, has confirmed it will "support" the removal of the 82-year-old cenotaph, which has stood alongside Christ Church Cathedral since 1937, if resource consent is approved.

Moving the 300-tonne cenotaph is estimated to cost up to $1.5 million, but CEAT secretary Neil Cooper would not say how much the trust would cover "as we've not made this figure public yet".

Spark calls

Dorothy from Richmond

Is anyone else getting phone calls from Spark threatening to disconnect their landline and internet??
I am so sick of them, I hang up, tell them to stop calling etc. but I have had them twice a day sometimes.
I eventually started questioning them to see how silly they got and once they found out I only have an apple IPad and no laptop or PC they seemed to lose interest and I think they have stopped calling. Fingers crossed.
