Water restrictions for Christchurch to protect firefighting supplies

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Water restrictions have been introduced in Christchurch to ensure there are enough supplies to fight fires.

The ban, the lowest of four levels, means water cannot be used outside between 3pm and 9pm, with use of hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation systems allowed only on alternate days.

People living at odd-numbered addresses should water gardens on odd dates, even-numbered houses on even dates.

Parking fees hike mooted for central Christchurch

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The city council has proposed increasing the cost of on-street metered parking by almost a third, from $3.10 an hour to $4.

Under the current pricing structure, people using a credit or debit card pay $3.10 per hour and a card fee of 50 cents, totalling $3.60. The proposed $4 an hour would see the… View more
The city council has proposed increasing the cost of on-street metered parking by almost a third, from $3.10 an hour to $4.

Under the current pricing structure, people using a credit or debit card pay $3.10 per hour and a card fee of 50 cents, totalling $3.60. The proposed $4 an hour would see the council absorb the card fee, a move that would cost the authority $300,000 a year but be recouped by the increased hourly rate.

In central Auckland motorists pay $5 an hour for the first two hours on weekdays, then $10 an hour; Wellington drivers pay $4.50 an hour.

What do you think of the rise? Fair enough or will it deter you from visiting the CBD? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.

Kia Ora Neighbours,

I’m 21 years old, searching for a nannying job in the neighbourhood. I’m great with kids and have lots of experience in looking after children. My most current work was for a family in St Martins, picking up two young boys from St martins school and looking after them until 4.30 during the weekdays.

I live locally in St Martins and I’m available weekdays. I’d be happy to give references or my CV if needed. Could look after kids in there own home or take them on some local activities!

I'm available all day on Mondays (until 4.30) and Wednesdays (until 5), and after school 3pm until 5pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. These time constrains are due to my uni timetable this year. I'd also be available for weekend nannying, and during school holidays.
I’m affordable at $18.50 p/h (might be a tad more if you have more children). Please contact me about any and all work that might be suitable!

Contact me at; francescawarne@gmail.com
Or flick me a text at; 0274375638

Looking forward to hearing from you!
Frankie :)
