It’s nearly time for the Risingholme Singers’ Christmas Concert, and we are really looking forward to it because, we are “going home!!” Yes, the choir is returning to the Risingholme Theatre, where it all began in 1947, and this is the first concert there since we had to leave, after the 2011 earthquake. We have a lovely program of music, and even the audience will be invited to join in with us. I will insert a copy of the poster, but as the print is a bit small, the main details are:
3.00 p.m. Saturday 7th December 2019
Risingholme Theatre, 22 Cholmondeley Avenue, Opawa
(or via 99 Hawford Road, Opawa)
Door sales $15 (children under 13 Free)
Contact: Jill Willmott on 388 3235 or at email@example.com

Foodstuffs is recalling all batches, dates and flavours of its Pams brand Dairy Dessert - the 1.65 litre. This is due to the possibility of the plastic container breaking and plastic pieces entering the product. This could cause injuries if consumed.
The product is sold nationwide in Pak’n Save, New World, Four Square, Gilmours and Trents. This does not affect any other Pams brand products. Find out more here.
Christchurch's roofed 25,000-seat stadium could be ready within five years but the pressure is now on to get it planned and built right.
The city council's long-awaited investment case says a 25,000 seat mostly clear-roofed facility is the best fit for the city, and could be built within the budgeted $473 million, including running costs. Temporary seating was not included but could be added later.
The chosen option would cost $472.7m to build and $485.3m to run over 25 years, of which $343m would be funded by stadium income, with an annual $4.2m council top-up.
