Old Post Office revamp taking shape in Christchurch's Cathedral Square

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

Hey neighbours,

Work to convert Christchurch’s heritage-listed Old Post Office building into a multi-use hospitality space is taking shape.

The Press was given a sneak peek inside The Grand, which will occupy the two-storey building in Cathedral Square, plus a large outdoor section. It is scheduled to open in December.

The space includes a restaurant, café and bars, an i-Site visitor information centre, artisan bakery, pâtisserie, florist and gift store, and a South Island food tasting experience promoting local wine, beer, cheese and meat.

Did you visit the old post office before the quakes? And will you visit this new offering once it's ready?

More pictures available in the story by clicking 'Read More' below. Please note the attached image was taken shortly after the 2011 quakes.

Old recycle bins..

Alan from Beckenham

Does anybody out there happen to have any of the old green recycle bins from about 10 years ago? I could do with a few for our garden. Many thanks. Alan.
