Hi Canterbury neighbours. We are delighted to let you know your region has reached a huge milestone... Canterbury has now cracked the 100,000 member mark on Neighbourly.
The Neighbourly Team would like to thank every one of you for continuing to display your community spirit, especially after another challenging year. The Christchurch Mosque attacks in March showed how much Canterbury residents are prepared to come together to support one another.
We were blown away to see Neighbourly noticeboards filled with people wanting to make a difference in their community - reaching out to neighbours to organise visits to the local mosque and coordinating events to fundraise for the victims.
Canterbury, we hold you close to our hearts. Congratulations on the milestone and thank you for being such great neighbours!

For those that maybe interested in what happens above their heads there will be (according to Heavens Above website ) two main drifts of Starlink satelites tonight. One shortly after sunset starting about 8.57pm. reaching 25-30 deg. above horizon in the N.E. (nearly 20 of them) but there will still be a lot of brightness in the sky due to the set sun. Another group (about 40) just after 10.00pm rising in the W.N.W ascending to about 80 deg.in the S.W. (nearly over head) and disappearing S. The whole forty of them will take about 10. min from start to finish. This of course is subject to a clear sky. Good spotting everyone.
Join our new Canterbury Parenting Group - a safe place to connect with other parents, grandparents and guardians.
Use the Group to organise coffee catch-ups and playdates - and to share advice, tips and tricks for growing happy little neighbours. (There’ll even be chances to win great prizes).
It was once a "hidden gem" for walkers, runners and cyclists.
Now it's a boggy, overgrown, broken mess.
Where other parts of the Christchurch residential red zone have been maintained and used for recreation, the Horseshoe Lake walkway has deteriorated so much since the Canterbury earthquakes people can no longer access it.
Do you think the walkway should be restored? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.
