Oceania’s newest luxury village, The Bellevue, is beautifully set up for you to keep active, close to shops and the city centre.

Local resident, Kate Fraser, recently moved to The Bellevue and loves the convenience of apartment living. “When I walked in the door, I knew immediately I was going to live here.” On a typical day you could start out with a barista-made coffee and a treat at the café, get in your steps at the gym, or join neighbours for a game of pool before moving to happy hour. “The village has a feeling of a resort hotel. I thought — it reminds me of that hotel in Spain.” Kate added.

Call Brenda today on 0800 333 688 and stop by for a coffee and something delicious from the chef to get a taste for The Bellevue lifestyle.

We’re just down the road at 21 Windermere Road, Papanui, Christchurch.

Christchurch council removes 840 rubbish bins from parks, adds 100 'smart bins'

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

More than 200 Christchurch parks will be left without rubbish bins when the city council finishes removing 840 of them across the city.

About 100 “smart” bins will be installed instead, but 211 “low-use” neighbourhood parks will have their bins taken away and not returned.

More than 200 Christchurch parks will be left without rubbish bins when the city council finishes removing 840 of them across the city.

About 100 “smart” bins will be installed instead, but 211 “low-use” neighbourhood parks will have their bins taken away and not returned.

The smart bins are bigger and are equipped with sensor technology that provides the council’s maintenance contractor with daily information on how full each bin is.

Council head of parks Andrew Rutledge​ said the data meant the contractor only needed to send crews out to empty the bins when required, saving time and money.

In areas without bins, the council encouraged people to take any rubbish home with them, and put it in their red wheelie bin.

Employees of the Addington railway workshops pedal homeward on a cold July evening in
1946.

The workshops stood at what is now Tower Junction. They built, maintained and repaired railway stock and were a major employer in Christchurch.

The Christchurch terrain suited cycling and the city was known for its bikes. Few workers owned cars, so bikes and trams dominated city streets after the 5pm knock-off time.

The 40-hour week and eight-hour working day, introduced 10 years earlier but in general practice only from 1946, contributed to the 5 o'clock rush.
