Any interest in a Gardener's Interest Group?

Bev Adams from Woolston Development Project

Just wondering how much interest there would be for interest group held here at Woolston Development Project Hall on Ferry Rd, Woolston? It would be great if there experienced gardener's as well as some just starting out. This group could meet weekly or fortnightly to share information and worthwhile gardening tips, perhaps invite a guest speaker now and then about a topic of common interest to the group, maybe an occasional visit to a worthy garden could be arranged.......Have I peaked your interest? Let me know and if there is enough interest we could have an initial meeting to get it started. Bev 3894448 or w.dp@xtra.co.nz or reply on here.

What do you think of Christchurch's stadium plan?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch's roofed 25,000-seat stadium could be ready within five years but the pressure is now on to get it planned and built right.

The city council's long-awaited investment case says a 25,000 seat mostly clear-roofed facility is the best fit for the city, and could be built within the budgeted $473 million, including running costs. Temporary seating was not included but could be added later.

The chosen option would cost $472.7m to build and $485.3m to run over 25 years, of which $343m would be funded by stadium income, with an annual $4.2m council top-up.
