Help us fix up our Clubroom Kitchen

Donna Buchanan from Riccarton Players

Riccarton players is a community run, charity status, amateur theatre group in Christchurch www.riccartonplayers.co.nz...
We moved into our new clubrooms 6 months ago after finally being able to find a suitable premises to rehearse, store our costumes, props and sets, have committee meetings and hold social events for our members. It has been a very long journey after losing our theatre in the Christchurch Earthquakes. But we've got through together moving from venue to venue still performing plays, musicals and kids shows - entertaining our community and giving our members a sense of belonging.
Our new premises kitchen leaves a lot to be desired and it is our aim to fit out a kitchen that would be more suitable, efficient and feel like a nice place to meet, share a coffee, a snack and host social events for our members. It currently really only has a sink and a small bench. We'd love to have an oven, decent fridge, bench to prepare food, do the dishes and have instant boiling water.
It would also be a lovely 'reward' for all those who have stuck by us and way to maintain and grow our membership.
A neighbourly AMI Grant would assist us greatly in making this project a reality.

Should more lights go up at Hagley Oval?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

To host international day/night games, Christchurch's Hagley Oval will require six lighting towers, but there's strong opposition to the proposal.

What do you think? Should the lights be installed so the city can host more cricket matches? Or should Hagley Park be left alone? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
