Half the Environment Canterbury council is standing again

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

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.

Saturday 28th September there will be rides on the big steam train, and the small trains through the trees. Also traction engine rides. The steam museum will be open as well where you will see some vintage steam engines working. The model railway will also be working. A great night for the family to do something different. Bring a picnic tea and have a fun night. There will be some great photo opportunities.
