Missing little black cat

Amy from Halswell

Our gorgeous little black cat, Lily, has been missing since midday Sat 4 January from Westlake Drive. She has a tiny white bib and is usually wearing a sparkly collar with a bell. She has a very quiet meow and is very friendly. Please check sheds and small spaces - she loves to hide in boxes. Her fur brother is missing her as are her humans. Please call Amy 0211473921 if you have any info.

Bus patronage decreasing as Environment Canterbury moots 9.8 per cent rates rise

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Canterbury authorities have dropped their goal of 20 million annual bus trips by 2020 as public transport use declines in Christchurch.

The service, run by regional council Environment Canterbury (ECan), is to be overhauled in a plan that will contribute to a planned 9.8 per cent rates increase – almost double what was previously forecast.

Read more here and tell us what you think of ECan's plan in the comments below.

Tiny wasp

I just found this in my house, I have not seen anything like it in New Zealand. Just wondering if anyone knows anything about bugs. Is it a concern?

Ka Pai 96.1

Liam from Spreydon

I am a student at the New Zealand Broadcasting School. We are currently undertaking the mammoth (but exciting!) task of creating a radio station for this years 96.1 frequency. We are currently surveying to help inform the creation of our station and would greatly appreciate it if you could help us out with this process! It’s a completely anonymous survey and should only take 5 minutes. Please share with your friends, especially if they have kids. The more responses we get, the better the station!
