Local Likes: Canterbury's favourite local businesses celebrated

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Happy Friday neighbours,

Do you have a favourite local business that you'd like to share with us?

As part of Neighbourly and Stuff’s ‘Local Likes’ campaign, Cantabrians are asked to nominate their favourite local businesses, and share what makes them so great.

Receiving multiple nominations, Bohemian Bakery in St Martin’s has proved an early frontrunner for Christchurch’s top local entity.

The bakery has been lauded for having “the best sourdough in the city” and “the most divine vegan pain au chocolat.” Their salty pretzels are also a crowd favourite, and the staff are always good for a laugh.

Do you have a place you'd like to add? Please let us know below.

Full story can also be read by clicking 'Read more' below.

Have a good weekend folks. Jake

Grow an extra row

Yates

While some Kiwis are enjoying home grown vegies, many are going without vegetables altogether.

This National Gardening Week we’re encouraging gardeners to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.

To help get your extra row underway Yates is lending a helping hand.

Just register online HERE between 1st and 25th October to receive a FREE packet of Yates Vegie Seeds.

Once you’ve grown your vegies to share (or if you have spare now) please visit HERE to find a list of the organisations that would welcome your donation of fresh homegrown vegies.

Why should I update my will?​

Public Trust

Just like times change, so should your will – so it’s important to keep it up to date. ​

You’ve built a life around the things and people that matter most. An up-to-date will is the best way to protect your legacy and share it with the people you love. ​

If you last made a will back in the days of cassette tapes and telethons, it may be time for an update. ​

Southern border closure

Les from North New Brighton

Nick Wilson's article in the Press this morning for my money is SPOT ON shut the gate NOW. It may even be to late now but lets try to keep this virus in the NORTH ISLAND. The south is hurting enough now and it's proved the northerners cannot obey sensible rules. BUT to all the SOUTH GET VACCINATED NOW NOW NOW.
