Two Christchurch sports clubs have set their sights on using Lancaster Park if the city council decides to retain the land for sports use.

The demolition of the earthquake-damaged Lancaster Park will be completed during 2019 and the Christchurch City Council will decide on Thursday whether to redevelop it for sporting purposes.

The council says several sports clubs are interested in the park, and Cashmere Technical Football Club and Lancaster Park Cricket Club have made formal requests to use the land.

Christchurch authorities have come up with a plan to stop boy racers revving engines and racing off the line: Don't let them hit red lights.

Council will trial phasing the traffic lights on Bealey Ave so traffic gets a clear run down the length of the street, to reduce noise from things like stopping and accelerating, revving and burn-outs.

Do you think this will stop boy racers from revving loudly? Tell us in the comments below (please write NFP if you don't want your comments published).

There’s a deceased cat on the grass berm outside 88 Sparks Road this morning, looks to be the victim of traffic. Small to medium size, tabby and white mid length coat. Looks like it’s just sleeping peacefully, but the tail has been degloved, so be prepared for that. 😕

Summer safety checklist: Fall-proofing your home

The Team from ACC New Zealand

With warmer weather heading our way, gardening is a great way to stay fit and get regular doses of Vitamin D to help strengthen our bones.

The Home Safety checklist will give you practical tips on how to avoid falls, sprains and strains while pulling those stubborn weeds. For example, when you’re gardening avoid heavy lifting and use long-handled tools so you’re not bending over for long periods. Steady yourself when bending and standing, no pesky weed is worth falling for!

A new movement called Live Stronger for Longer is helping to reduce the risk of falls by providing practical information and free resources. We want to help you stay on your feet, and living the life you want to live.

Take the home safety checklist with your friends and family and join the movement today.

Proudly brought to you by ACC, HQ&SC, MOH and your local community health providers.

Every year for over the last 10 years I have been putting up thousands of lights at Christmas. The last 5 years have seen me move into animating these displays (They react along with a song)
You may have seen parts of this display on Avonhead road or in St Albans over the last few years.

You are all welcome to come see this display in Dunluce Place in Hornby. You can't miss it, between the hours of 8:30PM to 10:30PM Sunday - Thursday and 8:30PM to 11:30PM Friday and Saturday nights. The lights are first switched on, on December 1st

If you drive use your car radio or if you decide to walk/bike, bring a phone that has the ability to tune into a radio station. You will want to tune into 107.2FM when you are outside the light display. (Otherwise it won't make any sense, other than just some flashing lights) I will try to avoid playing music through a stereo outside as to avoid annoying neighbors at late hours.

There is no cost involved so bring as many people as you want. If you need a map you can find us on Lightupchristmas at this link here:
www.lightupchristmas.co.nz...

Most of the lights you see featured in the display are not available in New Zealand stores, and a lot of the decorations are hand-made and/or modified versions to suit my show.
If you have any negative effects when viewing flashing lights, please take this as a warning that these lights will flash and change colour to music and may cause issues for some people.
