It will be the first fully democratic Environment Canterbury (ECan) election for 12 years but only one councillor sacked by the National government in 2010 is keen to stand again.

Nominations for candidates for the seven regional constituencies closed on Friday yesterday at midday, with 39 received for the 14 positions at the council table.

Six of the 12 current councillors are standing again, but Rik Tindall is the only member of the regional council dismissed more than nine years ago willing to have another go.

Hi all!
My name is Lisa Coppins and I work as a Vet Nurse in Temuka. Lauren Prouting (vet), and I are going to Tonga in October to volunteer with SPAW (South Pacific Animal Welfare). SPAW is a registered charity that works with our island cousins to bring much needed veterinary care to areas were there are often no permanent vets. This will be my 3rd trip, and Lauren's 5th, this time round we thought we would fundraise to help cover costs of flights, and volunteer fees. Previously we have covered these costs ourselves. If you would like to know more or help us reach our fundraising goal, follow this link to our givealittle page.
