Hi neighbours,

Just 125 steps from the beach lies a quaint children’s bookshop with the friendliest volunteer staffer.

As part of Stuff’s Buy Local project, we are profiling six small Canterbury businesses that people may not already know about and that are in need of local support.

Odours wafting from the fire-damaged wastewater treatment plant in the east of Christchurch could last for months, the council says.

One month after a fire ripped through the roofs of the two big trickling filters at the Bromley wastewater plant on November 1, an investigation into the cause of the blaze is still continuing.

The unpleasant smell wafting from the treatment plant could “unfortunately last for some time,” the Christchurch City Council said in a statement.

The odour would continue until the treatment biomass was healthy, and it could take several months for the biomass to regrow, it said. Continue reading here.

This afternoon our bus driver told us that as from Monday 6th Dec all Canterbury bus timetables will run to the Saturday timetable until further notice. Guestimate at least next three months!
For those of us who rely on buses to meet their work time schedule it could mean a change in bus route or much earlier/later time change! Let's hope our place of work can be flexible/understanding.
I will ask for confirmation at the bus Exchange tomorrow on my way to work and express my concern that we have not been given a reminder or notice of this change in plenty of time to explore alternatives if necessary.
