Should the city council extend its one-hour free parking scheme?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Central city retailers are urging the Christchurch City Council to extend its free inner city parking scheme, saying their new retail precinct needs help to compete with malls, especially with the arrival of winter.

The call comes after more than 380 people wrote submissions to the council urging it to extend the one-hour free parking at the Lichfield St and Art Gallery car parks beyond June 30. Another 95 are against it and about 30 have some concerns.

Be the hope someone needs: Help prevent suicide

Appliance Shed

Did you know that three families lose a loved one to suicide every two days in NZ?

The current β€œharden up, stay staunch and let’s not talk about it” attitude towards anyone with a mental illness or having suicidal thoughts is a major problem. Through changing attitudes, lives will be saved.

The Appliance Shed is kick-starting a fundraising campaign to support the life-saving work of Mike King and The Key To Life Trust. The Trust equips our nation's young people to check in on their mates and remind them it’s okay to ask for help. We believe it’s important for all of us to feel valued and know that someone has your back when times are tough. Join us, donate, and make a difference.
