Hey people. If you are anything like me & attempt to recycle as much as possible, because of the virus the recycling depot isn't having people on the sorting belts so all our recycling is going straight to Kate Valley & into the ground. Please if you can hold onto your yellow bin recycling material until the end of the lock-down. Maybe to make space in your bin, sort the bottles out & put them aside, squash all your plastic bottles, do whatever it takes to make space so you don't have to put your bin out until this is over.
Kia ora Canterbury, it's time to dust off that old camera, get out and about and show the rest of your neighbours your favourite, treasured spots in your region. It could be an awesome view, the shy wildlife or even the old buildings that are wanting their stories to be told.
Go ahead, get snapping and illustrate what's beyond your backyard.

Don, I cannot believe how restricted this forum is, why can I not interact with you because you happen to be in a different suburb?? unbelievable!
Tickets for the first three days of Christchurch's new hot pools sold out in less than 24 hours.
The Christchurch City Council confirmed on Tuesday that the New Brighton hot salt water pools, named He Puna Taimoana, will open on Saturday, the start of Queen's Birthday Weekend.
By Wednesday morning, the website for the hot pools showed all 600 available slots had been booked out for Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Tuesday still had plenty of spots available.
Entry to the new pools is allowed only through online bookings, and sessions are limited to 50 people due to Covid-19 restrictions.
