Last weekend's show at Christchurch Arena featured more than 200 LEGO exhibits of iconic buildings, recognisable landscapes and movie scenes.

One exhibit was a microscale model of the Christchurch Museum and The Arts Centre, Te Matatiki Toi Ora, as well as a section of the Botanical Gardens and a row of historic houses.

Organiser Treena-Marie Aldridge said this year’s show featured the biggest exhibits ever displayed since the Christchurch Brick Show began in 2012.

The Brick Show was cancelled in 2020 and the exhibits for this year were at least two years in the making.

About 22,000 people went through the door over the two days, a record number, organisers said.

The next Christchurch Brick Show will be held on July 16 and 17 next year.

Hey neighbours,

Fiona Stewart’s farm upbringing has shaped her into the person she is today.

It taught her the importance of food, animals and wellbeing, and how these can be used to better people’s lives, particularly youths.

Cultivate Christchurch is her baby. She first started the initiative with the idea it would be rurally based, but meeting co-founder Bailey Perryman, an ecologist, in 2015 showed her a farm school could be done without having to leave the city.

Oceania has always believed in better and so does The Bellevue’s Care Manager, Russell.

Since returning to the South Island five years ago, Russell has been proud to witness Christchurch’s resurgence. “Christchurch is like a phoenix risen from the ashes, with a tremendous opportunity to redefine itself.” And now he is playing his part in reimagining our city’s aged care offering.

Russell has built his team at The Bellevue with one goal in mind. “As the Care Manager I believe I have a principle responsibility to set the scene in providing an environment where staff can truly excel, feel empowered and make a positive difference to the lives of residents, families and each other.”

During the transition to care, extra support is provided. “Our fantastic Guest Services Manager is the key to helping residents feel at ease when they first move in, as she provides a hospitality overlay. She’ll get to know you so that she can provide all the extra touches that make you feel at home,” says Russell.

Another initiative Russell is proud of is that couples can stay together in the same room, even if their needs are not aligned. Russell has seen the impact it has on residents - “It is just wonderful to offer couples Care Suites which allow couples to stay together – just as they always have,” says Russell.

To find out more about our Care Suites, with Rest Home and Hospital level care, get in touch with Russell today.
