A caring community is one that’s there for us in good times, and in our times of need. That’s the community Hoko and Glenda found at Diana Isaac Retirement Village in Christchurch.
“The staff are absolutely amazing,” explains Glenda. “They go out of their way to speak to you, to make sure you’re ok.”
Hoko and Glenda feel very fortunate for the support they received when Hoko experienced some health issues. It wasn’t just the village staff who provided support, the whole community rallied around them.
“When I got sick the community itself looked after me,” Hoko explains.
“I can’t speak highly enough of the staff here,” Glenda says.
The pond could cost 3 million on front page of today's Mail.Green Meadows was a similar original estimate and ended up over double.Can we take the gamble? For that amount of money a smaller purpose built facility for the modellers perhaps could be built at Saxtons or where ever and the original pond left as it is.Fill it with carp and other algae and weed eating fish which are allowed in NZ .Could be quite an attraction for taking kids fishing and also another drawcard for Tahuna . Birds and other wildlife would probably access the area once a food source was available.Thinking out loud .. what do think Mr NCC..
Tis the season... let's help make other's holidays more merry and bright.
The estimated cost for concreting the base of the Modellers Pond has gone up again - this time to over $3.5 million.
The plan isn't set in stone, but was the preferred option of the previous council when it was costed at $2.37m. What do you think?
