World War II dominated the 1940s. "Our boys" marched through Christchurch before
departing to fight the foe. They were joined by many women who had enlisted in the armed forces to serve in support roles. Here, some of the 549 members of the Women's Service Auxiliary march in a street parade. It is April, 1941. Germany has inflicted a series of defeats
on Allied forces in Europe and Japan is preparing for war in the Pacific. Such parades
boosted patriotism, which helped the military recruitment drive and the raising of money for
the war effort through bonds schemes.

My wife has bought another piano and so she is selling her current one. ....

This is a very popular model for pianists of all levels. This piano was made in 1970 in Japan. I have had it for about 20 years and have now upgraded.

It has been regularly tuned and well looked after and has had some restoration work done to it in 2019. It was valued by a master technician at $4680 in 2019. (Valuation and assessment available on request).

I have enjoyed playing this instrument for many years and hope it will go to a loving home. Please come and have a look at it.

Do you remember the big snow of 1992?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

It was quickly dubbed “the big snow” and was the heaviest snowfall in three decades.

“Christchurch teetered on the brink of disaster yesterday as the worst snowstorm in 30 years first paralysed the city, then caused widespread flooding,” The Press reported on August 29, 1992.… View more

Happy Friday neighbours,

If you can’t handle the heat, get a new kitchen.

The Christchurch City Mission’s social enterprise, Thrive Catering, is relieved to have moved to a new state-of-the-art commercial kitchen as it continues to provide cooking classes and other essential lessons to Christchurch’s most vulnerable.

Thrive offers work experience courses for City Mission clients who are trying to get back on their feet. They are given valuable cooking lessons and other life skills to better their prospects for the future, when the mission no longer provides direct support for them.

The charity's Hereford St base kitchen had become too small, meaning course capacity was limited and many were missing out on learning vital skills.

Qigong and Zhineng Qigong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese holistic therapy. It is the foundation to Tai Chi, but relatively simpler than Tai Chi.
Qigong includes dynamic and static forms.
Zhineng Qigong emphasises moving meditation rather than static meditation.
It uses the consciousness, body, breath, sound vibration and universal Qi(energy) to bring about positive transformation of the body, mind and spirit.

“The gentle movements stretch every muscle in my body although they look very simple. My muscles feel stronger, and I am mentally stronger too. While practicing, I feel the sense of “unity with the universe.””
~ Susan Sky, NZ

“Through regular qigong practice, my back pain is healed and my spine is more flexible. I had also been suffering severe shoulder pain for months. Just like a miracle, after one qigong class the pain had gone. The pain did come back a couple of days later, but much milder. After regular practice, I am pain free. This was a wow fact for me. I LOVE the feeling of connection to the Universal Qi, and would like to share qigong with others.”
~ Graham Good, NZ

$150 (10 classes) or $17 casual, CDs, books and DVDs are available for your better improvement
