We would love to offer the opportunity to a community group to fundraise at the event by running a sausage sizzle or something similar. If you are interested please contact Ian on ISargeant@paralympics.org.nz or 021 220 6461.
Thanks everyone.

Christchurch council takes hard line on recycling rule breakers

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Almost 1500 Christchurch households could soon have their recycling bins confiscated as the city council cracks down on people who refuse to separate their waste.

About 180 yellow wheelie bins have already been removed and the council has sent final warnings to another 1450 residents.

To get the bins back, they will have to pay $97.65 and sign a statement promising to abide by the rules. Their bins will be monitored to make sure they keep that promise.

Christchurch City Council has spent close to $1.5 million sending almost 1500 truckloads of contaminated material from yellow bins to landfill since May. That equates to about 41 per cent of all yellow bins.

Do you agree with council's strict recycling approach? Let us know below.

Caravan motor movers install required..

Alan from Beckenham

Is there anybody out there with any experience with installing caravan motor movers? I have a second hand set to install on an English caravan but as it is essentially a two person job I am happy to pay for assistance.
Up for the task? Give me a call on 0278955409. Many thanks. Alan.
