Greater Christchurch has overwhelmingly voted red – giving Labour all but two of its electorate seats and the majority of the party vote.

Labour supporters at the party's election event in Christchurch on Saturday night were barely able to keep a lid on their excitement and glee at National’s astonishingly poor performance in the city – and their knives came out for their parliamentary colleagues in Blue.

“At last, Christchurch has woken up,” said Duncan Webb, Christchurch Central’s incumbent.

“It’s been a long campaign, exhausting, but the reward you get for that, it’s amazing.

$3m repair bill at old school: Cables stripped, windows smashed, ceiling torn down

Vandals have ransacked an empty Christchurch school building, despite the Ministry of Education spending $80,000 on security and fencing.

Vandals have ransacked an empty Christchurch school building, despite the Ministry of Education spending $80,000 on security and fencing.

Cables were stripped, windows smashed, carpets ripped up and a suspended ceiling torn down at the former Shirley Boys’ High School site.

The vandals caused a $3 million repair bill at the old school site, potentially derailing plans for nearby Banks Avenue School to take over the property.

The North Pde building became empty when Shirley Boys’ moved to a new purpose-built school in New Brighton in May 2019.

A deal would have meant Banks Avenue School – which currently does not have a hall – could have used the gym, while sports clubs and community groups could have hired the venue and outdoor pitches in the evenings.

However, the mindless wrecking-spree could mean the property will be bulldozed, if the ministry decides it will cost too much to repair it to meet building regulations.

Resonance Ensemble conducted by Tony Ryan will present Heroes and Anti-Heroes – an innovative and spectacular programme of orchestral works featuring outstanding local soloists
Christchurch’s superb specialist orchestra, Resonance Ensemble, conducted by Tony Ryan, is currently preparing another exciting programme of works from less often encountered corners of the repertoire.
Beethoven’s Egmont Overture is one of his best-known orchestral works, but few will know the other moving and dramatic music that the composer wrote for Goethe’s play. Composed towards the end of Beethoven’s extraordinarily productive middle period, the Incidental Music to Egmont is among his finest creations. Resonance Ensemble’s performance of the complete Egmont music will include soprano Helen Charlton in its two vocal movements, and Christchurch actor and singer Ben Freeth who will provide a linking narration to bring the dramatic context to life.

Two short vocal pieces by this concert’s conductor Tony Ryan will again feature the singing talents of Helen Charlton and Ben Freeth. Helen performs Ryan’s orchestral song Don Quixote, and she will be joined by Ben for It’s Christmas Here As Well which was premiered at last year’s Christchurch Symphony Orchestra Christmas Concert.

Khachaturian’s colourful and spectacular Violin Concerto may not often appear in concert programmes, but this wonderfully appealing and dramatic work, full of the composer’s familiar melodic and rhythmic genius is the major work in this programme. Featuring talented nineteen-year-old Christchurch violinist, Thomas Bedggood, this will be a performance not to be missed.

The orchestra will end with two further works by Khachaturian, his very popular Adagio from Spartacus and the swirling Waltz from Masquerade.
