Risingholme Singers - Concert

Jean from Linwood

Hi Folks,

It’s nearly time for the Risingholme Singers’ Christmas Concert, and we are really looking forward to it because, we are “going home!!” Yes, the choir is returning to the Risingholme Theatre, where it all began in 1947, and this is the first concert there since we had to leave, after the 2011 earthquake. We have a lovely program of music, and even the audience will be invited to join in with us. I will insert a copy of the poster, but as the print is a bit small, the main details are:

3.00 p.m. Saturday 7th December 2019

Risingholme Theatre, 22 Cholmondeley Avenue, Opawa

(or via 99 Hawford Road, Opawa)

Door sales $15 (children under 13 Free)

Contact: Jill Willmott on 388 3235 or at risingholmesingers@gmail.com

If you would like to read more about the concert, please have a look at the website link here, via Stuff:

security

Jim from Woolston

early on Wednesday about 1am I noticed a woman in our street entering the houses and looking around etc. watched her for about 10 minutes she went into several properties, I phoned the police explained what was happening they were great took all the details and the description of the person and by the time we had finished our conversation after about 10 minutes watching and monitoring the lady whilst I was talking to the police operator the police car arrived at the end of our street and took it from there, I felt that they took my complaint seriously and acted as quickly as they could, I live in Brookhaven Woolston and the street we live in is not on the way to anywhere so the person was not there for anything else than no good. Luckily I am a late nighter usually about midnight -1am before I go to bed, if I had not witnessed this person who knows what might have happened.
It is the time of year that these people go out looking for opportunities, we need to make sure our homes are secure, locked gates, windows doors sheds etc and ensure there is nothing lying around that would tempt them to enter you property.
