Hi all,
I was cycling eastbound on Riccarton Road on Saturday 13 August approx 1:30pm in the marked cycle lane when I was hit by a vehicle (blue Subaru) that was wanting to turn left into a property (Kauri Lodge opposite the McDonald's).
Driver initially accepted fault but is now going back on his words and is refusing to cover bike repairs. I've submitted a police report and looking for witnesses to confirm what unfolded.
Might be a long shot but if you happened to have seen the incident and can come forward as a witness please contact me on 0211072797 or inha.go@outlook.com, would greatly appreciate it!
Thanks, Inha

65-year-old says it's wrong she gets less NZ Super for being married

The Team Reporter from The Press

A married Christchurch woman says it is “ridiculous” she is paid less New Zealand Superannuation than someone who is single and living with another adult.

A married Christchurch woman says it is “ridiculous” she is paid less New Zealand Superannuation than someone who is single and living with another adult.

A married person gets a pension of $817.32 a fortnight, before tax, compared with the $990.20 received by a person sharing with someone who is not their spouse or partner.

“I have a friend who isn't in a relationship, but she's sharing a house, and they share all the expenses, and she's going to end up getting $172.88 more than me a fortnight which is just plain wrong,” said Daphne, who did not want her last name used for privacy concerns.

The combined fortnightly payment for a couple is $1634.64.

The Ministry of Social Development said people in a relationship were more likely to share a wider range of costs and resources than a single person living with another adult.

With the 75+ population projected to double in 20 years’ time, it’s more important than ever to choose a retirement village that is equipped to support you when you’re fully independent as well as if you need care.

We offer a higher ratio of care in our villages so that if your needs change, you have priority access to our care centres.
