I posted the message below 10 days ago and unfortunately haven't been inundated with responses. However the need remains and is very real, so worth another try. Even happy if someone can help for a a few weeks.
"The Christchurch Theatre Workshop SING Group has been performing for 19 years. We are looking for a pianist to accompany the group. Rehearsals are held weekly for a couple of hours on a Monday afternoon and performances, which are also in the afternoon, every two months. Audiences are mostly from Rest Homes and the like. We are all volunteers so sorry, no payments are made, but you will have good fun and enjoy the camaraderie of the group.For more information, or to express your interest, contact John on 027 339 8448 or reply to his post."
We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.
By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.

It's changed from a supportive platform to an advertising one instead. I just had a quick look and more than half the posts were either from Stuff asking for opinions or business advertisements. At the rate this is going I'll be leaving, I already get a mailbox full of advertising, don't need it here as well.
Christchurch's roofed 25,000-seat stadium could be ready within five years but the pressure is now on to get it planned and built right.
The city council's long-awaited investment case says a 25,000 seat mostly clear-roofed facility is the best fit for the city, and could be built within the budgeted $473 million, including running costs. Temporary seating was not included but could be added later.
The chosen option would cost $472.7m to build and $485.3m to run over 25 years, of which $343m would be funded by stadium income, with an annual $4.2m council top-up.
