Hi Canterbury,

What's your opinion on dog-friendly businesses?

The number of dog friendly businesses in the Canterbury region are on the rise with over 30 cafes allowing dog owners to dine with their canines.

The decision is the business owner’s rather than council's, and the only requirement is dogs must be at least three metres away from the kitchen.

You can find the full list of dog-friendly businesses by clicking 'Read more'.

Share your thoughts (and other businesses we haven't listed) below and please write NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Northern Outlook.

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Good morning Neighbourly folk,

Christchurch performer Nathan Bonner, also known as Mulletman, has launched a new buskers festival that will run at the same time as its larger Bread & Circus rival.

Bonner’s festival, which is called Salty Buskers Club, will feature six buskers performing in Akaroa on Thursday, Birdlings Flat on Friday, and New Brighton on Saturday and Sunday. The Akaroa event will also include an evening show starring all the performers.

Bonner said he established the new event because he missed the New Brighton busking pitch and the busker evening shows that had been dropped since the Bread & Circus – World Buskers Festival was revamped in 2018.

What do you think of Bonner's idea? And will you check his festival out?

A leading coronavirus expert is calling on the Government to make scanning at potential “super-spreader” venues, such as bars and nightclubs, mandatory amid continued low use of the Covid-19 Tracer app.

Epidemiologist Dr Michael Baker said the next six months would be a “very dangerous” time for the country with a high risk of an outbreak while waiting for the vaccine roll-out in April.

On the first 2 occasions we were able to rescue the birds and put them somewhere safe to recover, but the one today was very young and passed away in the cloth I was holding it in. It seems late in the spring/summer season for such young birds to be about. Is this because of the weather pattern? Has anyone else notice unusual birds activity?
