There are many billboards reminding motorists to share the road with cyclists. I see our Wednesday cyclists are now using both lanes in Waterholes Road to travel in the one direction. Are they not aware the message is for them as well ..... or am I wrong. Can our Wednesday cyclists use just the one lane. It is barely tolerable that you spread yourself across that entire lane forcing motorists to slow to your speed until we are sure it is safe to overtake. It may be a country road to you but it is our lifeline to life’s necessities such as the dairy, butchers, vege shops, doctors, dentists, hospitals ..... need I go on. Share the road with motorists. Be considerate. Stay on one side of the road. Stop spreading across the entire road.

Nomination Quote - Jazz and his family - Bossman Dairy - Creagh St Store
"Every member of this family who serves in the shop are very friendly, helpful and always smiling. They get to know all their customers and I have never walked into a shop that makes you feel so welcome. During our first lockdown for Covid, they put food such as milk, bread, out for people who may need it free of charge."
A $21.5 million sports centre with a New Zealand-first interactive digital wall is preparing to open in Rolleston next month.
The centre, on Broadlands Drive, has areas for fitness classes, an upstairs indoor walking track, and eight sports courts that can be used for basketball, netball, futsal, volleyball, and tennis.
The Selwyn District Council said Selwyn Netball, Selwyn United Football and the Selwyn Sports Trust would host competitions at the new centre.
The design of a hard floor also meant it could host events such as a market or car show in the future too.
Have a safe and wonderful weekend!
