Inside the North Canterbury car museum with a unique, ever-evolving collection

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

About 30 minutes out of Christchurch and tucked away off the side of State Highway 1 is a classic car showroom with a unique, ever-evolving collection – going as far back as a 1913 Model T.

Gloria and Jesmond Micallef are behind the Waimak Classic Cars museum and showroom in Leithfield, North Canterbury, where they display about 60 cars from their 120-or-so car collection.

They've been hosting viewings at the Canterbury showroom, strictly by appointment, for slightly over a year now.

Plunge in bank counter transactions is no surprise

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

From columnist Mike Yardley: Understandably, bank branch closures are one of the biggest casualties of the digital age. Ongoing rationalisation of bricks and mortar branches is inevitable, but it’s debatable whether retail banks have struck the right balance between expediting the digital drive, and sustaining solid customer service.

Do they really give full consideration to the adverse impacts on communities from branch closures, the reputational damage from obliterating their physical presence, or their wider obligations as good corporate citizens?
