Bad start for Walnut season.

Ian from Papanui

Things aren’t looking good for this year’s walnuts. Plenty on the tree but they seem to be having problems releasing from the husks. Another unusual problem is that someone is eating them on the tree. A count this morning found 40% had been gnawed, presumably by mice, judging by the size of some of the holes in the shells and the successful hollowing out of the meat inside.
Anyone else finding the same?

Parking charges in central Christchurch could skyrocket

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch City Council’s draft 10-year budget outlines an intention to increase on-street parking from July from $3.10 an hour to $4.50 – a 45 per cent increase.

The cost to park at the council’s Lichfield St car park building could also rise from $2.80 an hour to $4 – a 43 per cent increase. The rate at the Art Gallery car park could double from $2 an hour to $4.

In a bid to cut operating costs the council is also proposing to reduce library hours, permanently shut the mobile library and close the Akaroa and Lyttelton service centres, as well as the Riccarton Rd bus lounges.

Read more here and tell us what you think of the council's proposals in the comments below.
