What we don't want to see on The Block NZ

Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

The Block NZ is back on our screens on Monday, but let's hope there are no more silly decor challenges and over-the-top reserves.

Employees of the Addington railway workshops pedal homeward on a cold July evening in
1946.

The workshops stood at what is now Tower Junction. They built, maintained and repaired railway stock and were a major employer in Christchurch.

The Christchurch terrain suited cycling and the city was known for its bikes. Few workers owned cars, so bikes and trams dominated city streets after the 5pm knock-off time.

The 40-hour week and eight-hour working day, introduced 10 years earlier but in general practice only from 1946, contributed to the 5 o'clock rush.

Use it or lose it - Your Local Pharmacy

Marina from Avonhead

We know the tactics - kill off our locals with loss leaders, then milk us unashamedly. Once our community pharmacies are gone they won't come back, leaving the market to the intruders - in this case Australian giants Chemist Warehouse and Countdown with their in-store pharmacies.

Once our community pharmacies are gone they won't come back, leaving the market to the intruders - in this case Australian giants Chemist Warehouse and Countdown with their in-store pharmacies. The intruders don't charge the dispensing fee to lure customers in but they still have to pay it to the government. I know in many households money is tight and 5 Dollars can go a long way. But if you can - please continue to support our local pharmacists. I would hate to lose the knowledge many of these pharmacists have accumulated and I have saved many doctors visits by simply talking to our pharmacist. I go to Hei Hei pharmacy in Wycola Ave.

Christchurch council removes 840 rubbish bins from parks, adds 100 'smart bins'

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

More than 200 Christchurch parks will be left without rubbish bins when the city council finishes removing 840 of them across the city.

About 100 “smart” bins will be installed instead, but 211 “low-use” neighbourhood parks will have their bins taken away and not returned.

More than 200 Christchurch parks will be left without rubbish bins when the city council finishes removing 840 of them across the city.

About 100 “smart” bins will be installed instead, but 211 “low-use” neighbourhood parks will have their bins taken away and not returned.

The smart bins are bigger and are equipped with sensor technology that provides the council’s maintenance contractor with daily information on how full each bin is.

Council head of parks Andrew Rutledge​ said the data meant the contractor only needed to send crews out to empty the bins when required, saving time and money.

In areas without bins, the council encouraged people to take any rubbish home with them, and put it in their red wheelie bin.

FREE Tai Chi Workshop
Sunday 13 June 2021 / 1pm - 2pm
Bayleys Knight Frank Foyer of the Art Gallery Christchurch

Relax and stretch at this entry-level class. Improve your strength, balance and energy. Come and learn from Tai Chi Qigong teacher Sandy Jiang. A special chance for the whole family to try out this ancient art form - All ages welcome!

Sandy Jiang was born in Taiwan and has been trained by leading Zhineng Qigong and Tai Chi teachers in Taiwan, China, and New Zealand.

Her Tai Chi teachers include Master Tang Yu-Shiun who is 100 years old now and lives healthily in Christchurch, and Master Dave Thew who represented NZ in the 4th World Traditional Martial Arts Championships in China and attained Gold and Silver in 2010.

Qigong is the foundation of Tai Chi. Through regular Qigong and Tai Chi practices, Sandy's students have gained different kinds of health benefits, physically, mentally and spiritually. Several of her students have also become Qigong teachers.

Sandy believes that the benefits of Qigong and Tai Chi can only be fully blossomed when shared.

*Please be sure to wear comfortable flat shoes and loose clothing - arrive early to ensure you don't miss a beat!

This year we are hoping to find someone that will come to the courts where we play and take out club team photo's. It could be any time on a Saturday from 8:15 (our very young FF teams and U12 team that play at this time) through to 2:30pm to have any of our age grade teams have their picts taken before they play at 3:05pm. I would know in advance the game times of all our other teams so over about 3-4 Saturdays we could potentially have all teams photo's taken. Hagley Park is looking really lovely with their trees and all the leaves on the ground and we would like something a little different this year for our club pic's. We are happy to pay for your time as long as it is reasonable. If you are interested and keen, please email the club at hornby.netball@gmail.com and we will get back in touch with you.

Possible Stolen Dog

He didn't look in good shape, but he had the most beautiful dog with him. Clearly very well looked after and well-fed. The dog had a good leather lead. The dog was ravenous. It was trying to eat plastic and then a rotten banana. I bought the dog some food, but when I went back to get more, the man disappeared. Unfortunately, I could not take a photo, neither do I know what breed the dog is. I can say that it was a male dog, medium size, unusual colouring - sort of brownish/blackish. If you have a dog that has gone missing and looks similar to the one I have described. I can fully describe the man who has it. Feel free to message me.
