Environment named top concern for Christchurch's future

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Green, safe, affordable, and sustainable, with meaningful jobs and a city which is easy to get around.

That’s what the residents of greater Christchurch say they want from their city in 2050, according to a new survey of about 4000 people.

While residents commented on topics ranging from traffic and housing to leadership and economic growth, the desire to protect the environment emerged strongly as the number one wish.

Read more here and tell us what you want most for Christchurch in the comments below.

Throwback Thursday: March past

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

World War II dominated the 1940s. "Our boys" marched through Christchurch before
departing to fight the foe. They were joined by many women who had enlisted in the armed forces to serve in support roles. Here, some of the 549 members of the Women's Service Auxiliary march in a street parade. It is April, 1941. Germany has inflicted a series of defeats
on Allied forces in Europe and Japan is preparing for war in the Pacific. Such parades
boosted patriotism, which helped the military recruitment drive and the raising of money for
the war effort through bonds schemes.

Study participants needed – Men aged 40-50

Zoe from Christchurch Central

A big thanks to those that have responded or taken part already!

I still currently need participants for my PhD study. I am looking for healthy people to come into my office (in Christchurch CBD) for around an hour, on two occasions, to complete some pen and paper activities with me (fun ones according to previous participants!).

Part of what we do, is to recruit healthy participants who match with the patients on age and gender. This is so we can try to rule out any effects differences in these may have on results. So far I haven’t been able to source enough men aged in their 40s to take part.

This is a volunteer opportunity, but you will also receive $50 petrol vouchers as compensation for your time and travel.

If you are interested please email me at the details on the poster (or visit the website listed) rather than commenting here as I will need to send you an information sheet to read over and go through some screening questions

Thanks!
Zoe
