Waimakariri's veteran Civil Defence volunteers recognised

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Three of Waimakariri’s veteran Civil Defence volunteers – including a father-daughter duo – have been recognised for completing more than a decade of service each.

Regional emergency management adviser Peter Cameron presented Mike Bryce, Nikita Bryce and district councillor Kirstyn Barnett with the Ministry of Civil Defence 10-year Long Service Award at a special ceremony hosted at a Civil Defence Cadet camp in Glentui in July.

All three recipients have responded to a variety of emergencies across the South Island, including earthquakes, fires and flooding events.

Congratulations Mike, Nikita and Kirstyn!

Grazing Wanted

Jason from Kaiapoi

Hello Fellow Neighbours

I am looking for on going grazing for my increasing sheep numbers.

If you have a lifestyle property and want to keep the grass down but don't want the hassle of running stock I could solve the problem and also give you some money for the use of your paddocks.

We are in the Clarkville area but would consider anything in the surrounding areas.
