Community Board meeting via Zoom

Shirish Paranjape from Community Board member, Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood C.Board

It was nice to have a Community Board meeting after a while, even if it was via Zoom. This was one step closer to having a 'public community board meeting'.
In March, the Council temporarily revoked the Board delegations in response to the Government’s announcement the country was going into COVID-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown, which meant there were no Community Board meetings since then.

Hello everyone,

Our cat Marley went missing 12 days ago and he hasn’t returned home yet (he’s never done this before).

If you see him, or you have him please get in touch as we are desperate to have our fur baby back home with us. 😔

Please check your sheds, garages, gardens and under your deck in case he is hiding anywhere and too scared to come out.

I will attach a link below of the post I have put all over Facebook (this includes images of him and a little explanation)

www.facebook.com...

He is a grey and white domestic short hair kitty. 18 months old, desexed, microchipped.

He is extremely loved and missed.

Please share around to help us get our Marley home to us safe and sound.

Thank you everyone

Dear Canterbury and the West Coast - ANZAC Day will look a little different for us this year - however there are many ways for you to acknowledge the incredible men and women who have served our communities and given their lives for our country.

We invite you to share a memory or photo to commemorate this special day on Neighbourly below. It could be a story of a member in your family who served - or perhaps the way you and your family celebrate ANZAC Day each year. (It might even be a photo of your freshly baked can't be-beaten ANZAC cookies).

We also invite you to take part in Stand at Dawn and join us at 6:00 am on Saturday 25 April. Stand at your letterbox, at the front door, in your lounge rooms, balconies, in your driveway. Wherever you are in the world, stand with us and take a moment to remember our fallen – but please stay within your ‘bubble’.

This will mean more time needed between each treatment, also it will be best to have one client in salon, one out to prevent too close contact between strangers. Again this means a longer space between clients. So please be patient if you cant get in straight away 🙂
