CCC

Bill from Linwood

Did anyone else read this piece today in the Herald today by Chris Lynch?
Imagine a local company undertaking a rebranding exercise during a global pandemic?

That is exactly what Christchurch City Council owned venues company Vbase has announced.

It will be now known as "Venues Ōtautahi".
Chief Executive Caroline Harvie-Teare released a statement saying "Vbase is driven to contribute to the economic, social and cultural wellbeing of the region."

"Venues Ōtautahi reflects who we are and what we do, deepening our connection with the community and our cultural heritage."

"This change is also the company brand taking a step back and making these community owned venues the heroes."


It's longer than this, but please go read it on the Herald Page. This CCC and their imported Town Clerk are completely out of their depth.

Drivers beware: Police to start issuing fines from red light cameras in Christchurch

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Three red light cameras will be switched on later this year to catch motorists illegally running through intersections in Christchurch.

A red light camera was installed at the intersection of Bealey Ave and Madras St in 2018, but it had only been used to collect data and no infringements had been issued from it.

A Christchurch City Council spokesman said two more red light cameras would be installed in the third quarter of this year: one at the intersection of Manchester St, Pilgrim Pl and Moorhouse Ave, and the other at the intersection of Gasson St, Madras St and Moorhouse Ave.

Infringements would start being issued from all three cameras after the new ones were installed, a police spokesperson said.

Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.
