Christchurch Hospital ED

Jo from Harewood

Had to take my daughter to the hospital this evening, suffering severe abdominal pain, after waiting for nearly 2 hours without being seen, we left, there were many, many people who were there before us who had not been seen either. It appears they are severely understaffed with only 1 nurse on the desk when we got there and a line of people. Is this the norm with our health system?

Do you remember the big snow of 1992?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey Cantabs,

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.

Poll: Do you support the Christchurch council confiscating yellow bins from shoddy recyclers?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hi neighbours,

Hundreds of yellow bins have been confiscated from Christchurch properties as the cost of dumping contaminated recycling approaches $2 million.

The city council is continuing to take a hard line on shoddy recycling practices and has removed 664 bins in the past nine months. These residents had previously been warned three times.

Do you support the confiscating of bins from shoddy recyclers?

Recommendation for a handyman ( or professional) who can paint our toilet ( removing wall paper, plastering and then painting).
Thanks
