My 2021 Prospa Local Business Hero nomination

Tony from Spreydon

Cafe Mosaic at Barrington Mall, Spreydon, Christchurch. Always had great service, beautiful food, and a fantastic coffee. If you just want a coffee and cake, or if you would like a meal, they have it all. During COVID they went out of there way to keep serving their customers even going as far as being able to text your order then collect. He also started a coffee card for you which he would stamp every time to make sure you got your free coffee when due. Highly recommend.

Environment named top concern for Christchurch's future

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Green, safe, affordable, and sustainable, with meaningful jobs and a city which is easy to get around.

That’s what the residents of greater Christchurch say they want from their city in 2050, according to a new survey of about 4000 people.

While residents commented on topics ranging from traffic and housing to leadership and economic growth, the desire to protect the environment emerged strongly as the number one wish.

We Say/You Say: MMP

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Northern Outlook

Hi Canterbury,

Would you support the introduction of MMP to local body elections?

A former Labour minister has called on the government to implement MMP as the voting system for local body elections in a bid to 'fix' local government.

Peter Neilson, an economist, is a former Labour MP for Miramar, a Minister of Revenue, Works and Associate Minister of Finance. Neilson explains how MMP could have a positive impact on civic participation after data from Internal Affairs showed a decline in voter turnout.

Around four out of 10 New Zealanders on the electoral role turned out to vote in the last set of local elections. In comparison, around seven or eight out 10 voted in the general election last year.

Black and grey tabby

Kerri from Lyttelton

Hi Neighbours, just in case someone is missing a small Grey and black tabby (looked about 6 months old) we sadly hit it this morning on Park Terrace, Corsair Bay. Have taken it to Estuary vets on Ferry Rd, seems to be ok. Not microchipped, the vets are going to check it over and then call SPCA. But if you think this may be your cat, please give the vets a call 033843075.
