Hi everyone. My daughter was at the Dogwatch shop, said they were in need of donated goods household goods, clothes etc. She said the shop was busy but they definately are in need of donations. I would be happy to take anything you would like to donate, as their shop is in New Brighton, it probably is a bit far for most. You could drop off to me, or I would be happy to pick up. It is for such a good cause, Dogwatch do an amazing job, and I am not sure what happens to stuff after we put it in the clothing bins. Thanks for your time, Jo

Christchurch’s city centre is awash with “dirty, dusty, gravel pits” and the council has had enough.
About 120 car parks within the four avenues are potentially operating without the necessary consent, stifling the city’s revitalisation.
The Christchurch City Council will this month send letters to owners of those sites, giving them 90 days to either cease their operations or apply for and be granted a resource consent.
If they fail to do so, the council could issue owners with a $300 fine and issue an abatement notice to cease the activity. Owners who ignore the notice could face court action. Read more here.
