Earthquake donations earmarked for Christchurch cenotaph removal

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The controversial relocation of Christchurch's Citizens' War Memorial has received financial backing for a proposed move to Cranmer Square.

The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust (CEAT), set up to administer post-earthquake donations, has confirmed it will "support" the removal of the 82-year-old cenotaph, which has stood alongside Christ Church Cathedral since 1937, if resource consent is approved.

Moving the 300-tonne cenotaph is estimated to cost up to $1.5 million, but CEAT secretary Neil Cooper would not say how much the trust would cover "as we've not made this figure public yet".

Kay from Papanui

Exciting to watch if your interested in this motor sport which I am. My nephew Nigel Cromie with navigator Bruce Alexander in boat 249 is racing, after first day 2nd place by 15 seconds. Racing in unlimited class 150mph+ takes nerves of steel, practice, and experience. 5 NZ boats competing in various locations in Canada. It takes a huge team effort to make all this possible. They have a Facebook page 2019 World Jet Boat Marathon updated daily with awesome videos. Instagram to follow them is Bruce_m_alexander or nzjbbra_official on Instagram . Bruce and Nigel have funny videos to watch well worth a 😆 laugh on a winter Christchurch day.
