Day 478 - a rent freeze now

Friday, 15 June 2012 8:58 p.m. by addingtonaction

The Christchurch quakes have damaged thousands of houses. Government ineptitude has disorganised and delayed the repairs that could have been done already.

As a result, hundreds of people in Christchurch are living in unlined garages, cars, tents, and caravans with a cold winter underway.

Day 476 - CCC only gives one week to apply for rates relief

This was sent from one of the protest organisers....

This makes sense as the latest woodburners have very low emissions, and are the only electricity independent heating device to use a renewable fuel. Woodburners are carbon neutral, all they do is recycle carbon into the atmosphere. The added advantages are they work when

Big snow today in Christchurch.

A hearty crowd turned up this morning to pack the 154 lots of fruit and veggies for the Christchurch South Fruit & Veggie Co-op.




Once the produce has been purchased, it will always be delivered to the packing depot by the freight company, and so it has to be packed, otherwise people's $10 gets wasted. There are no refunds.

So I thought people showed great strength of character to keep going regardless of the snow. West Spreydon ...
