Colleen Hawkes Reporter from Homed

The Block NZ is back on our screens on Monday, but let's hope there are no more silly decor challenges and over-the-top reserves.

Hi Canterbury,

How's your community doing after the floods? Are you satisfied with the emergency response?

It's been over a week since 400% of the monthly average rainfall caused flooding in Canterbury, with multiple districts plunged into a state of emergency.

River engineers are working across the region, with sites being strengthened by machinery. Environment Canterbury Rivers manager, Leigh Griffiths, says that teams are continuing to monitor rainfall and river levels across the region.

"We're working closely with Civil Defence and the MetService to monitor the situation and will be posting rainfall and river flow updates on our website as the situation develops. We suggest that people avoid rivers and check the road conditions before travelling," he said.

The weather event triggered a state of emergency, hundreds of evacuations, and closed roads and bridges throughout the region. The red heavy rain warning was issued on Saturday night, the second since the warning's inception.

Share your experiences below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comment featured in the Northern Outlook.

'Soft and slumping' Ashburton bridge closed on SH1 after extreme wet weather

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Flood-hit Ashburton Bridge on SH1 has now closed and there is currently no alternate route south with other road options also closed.

Flood-hit Ashburton Bridge on SH1 has now closed and there is currently no alternate route south with other road options also closed.

Ashburton Mayor Neil Brown said the water in the Ashburton River had got into the piles of the bridge, causing a subsidence in the piles.

“The bridge has dropped and you can visually see one section of the bridge is dropped about four to six inches."

Engineers would assess the bridge to see what was required to fix it.

The bridge closure had divided the town into town and cut off part of the South Island. Staff were working hard to open one route by Tuesday night to get south of Ashburton.

Wouldn’t it be great if the pub came to you?

Kiwi startup My Little Pub is taking backyard beers to a new level with their mini Irish, English and Scottish-themed pubs.

The business idea, hatched during the Covid-19 pandemic, came after Christchurch interior designer and My Little Pub founder Steve Rosling was asked by a friend to build a pub with Guinness on tap in his backyard, so he never had to leave home for his favourite draught again.

What do we think folks?

This month we’re rolling up our sleeves, putting up our hands, and saying ‘YES’ to giving our time and skills to projects that make Aotearoa a better place to live.

As a mostly volunteer-led organisation, our members know first hand the value and impact that a single volunteer can make in our communities. Imagine then how much can be achieved when several volunteers or even an entire street or neighbourhood decide to work together to achieve the same goal!

Whether you plan to coordinate your own volunteer driven activity, take part in one that’s already been setup, participate in National Volunteer Week (20-26 June), or simply show your own volunteers some extra love this month, know that every bit of effort to give back is a priceless investment in all of our futures.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re getting involved this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to:
