Poll: Are you a fan of the hot cross bun?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Good morning neighbours,

If you’re looking for a hot cross bun in Canterbury, your chances of biting into a dud are low.

Seven of the nation’s top 10 buns are made in Canterbury, according to 2021’s Great New Zealand Hot Cross Bun competition, run by the Baking Industry Association of New Zealand.

Are you a fan of the Easter treat?

Throwback Thursday: Rail freight

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The war stifled building development in the 1940s but NZ Railways' new outwards goods
shed went ahead. The concrete structure at the corner of Colombo and Cass streets was the largest building in the South Island when it opened in 1945. If the shed represented rail's dominance in freight transport, the new Christchurch station, built soon after, symbolised an
expected golden age for passengers. The new goods shed allowed old sheds across the
tracks, and a little to the east, to be demolished, clearing the site for the new station. Who
would think, within 50 years, both would be redundant?
