Paralympics NZ has the ACC Paralympics New Zealand Open Day coming up on Saturday at Cowles Stadium.
We would love to offer the opportunity to a community group to fundraise at the event by running a sausage sizzle or something similar. If you are interested please contact Ian on ISargeant@paralympics.org.nz or 021 220 6461.
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite summer holiday spots in NZ. Is there somewhere you keep returning to year after year and, if so, what are the main attractions? What makes it such a stand-out spot? Any tips you may be able to offer on the best things to see and do there - as well as the best places to grab a drink or bite to eat - would be much appreciated. Please put 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it to appear in a travel article. Thanks again.
Fed up and frustrated Christchurch residents have pleaded with the city council to get rid of a smelly compost plant they say is “slowly killing” them.
Bromley residents have been complaining to the Christchurch City Council about the “vile and putrid” smells and dust coming the plant, owned by the council and run by Living Earth, for 11 years.
Anger spilled out into the council chamber on Wednesday when residents called on the council to move the plant to a rural area away from homes. Four residents spoke at the council meeting and another five submitted written statements.
The residents have little faith that a proposed $17.5 million upgrade of the plant will make any difference to the odour.
What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
