Poll: Would you prefer costs for services and public facilities (like libraries and pools) to go up, or rates bills to go up?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Pursuing a 0 per cent rates increase will have an "enormous impact" on the Christchurch community, city councillors warn.

Pursuing a 0 per cent rates increase will have an "enormous impact" on the Christchurch community, city councillors warn.

A planned $34 million swimming pool and library development in Hornby could be delayed, the cost of a swim could go up and so could library charges, community grants could get the chop, and the New Brighton hot salt water pools could remain closed — everything is being considered to save money, but nothing is likely to be decided without another round of community consultation.

So what do you think? Would you want to pay more for services and public facilities, or would you prefer to have a higher rates bill? Or do you think there's any other way the council should save money? Read more here and tell us what you think in the comments below.

When did you last drink a glass of water?

Last night's Eat Well for Less NZ made me think about what we reach for when we need a drink and what we are teaching our kids about staying hydrated.
Energy drinks and classic fizzy drinks contain a whopping amount of sugar, up to 8 teaspoons per can or small bottle. Some drinks contain caffeine, up to the equivalent of 2 cups of coffee in a single can!
We know drinking this much sugar is not good for us and caffeine can lead to sleep disturbances and anxiety. And with such a rush of energy that is short lived, we are left wanting to reach for another quick fix.
Do you want to
* learn how to stop the sugar craving
* stay hydrated and focused without feeling stressed
* make your and your families health a priority
Now is a great time to do something about it. Give me a call or send me a message, learn how to reduce your sugar intake and balance your energy levels throughout the day.
Small changes in your diet can lead to BIG changes in your health

Dear Canterbury and the West Coast - ANZAC Day will look a little different for us this year - however there are many ways for you to acknowledge the incredible men and women who have served our communities and given their lives for our country.

We invite you to share a memory or photo to commemorate this special day on Neighbourly below. It could be a story of a member in your family who served - or perhaps the way you and your family celebrate ANZAC Day each year. (It might even be a photo of your freshly baked can't be-beaten ANZAC cookies).

We also invite you to take part in Stand at Dawn and join us at 6:00 am on Saturday 25 April. Stand at your letterbox, at the front door, in your lounge rooms, balconies, in your driveway. Wherever you are in the world, stand with us and take a moment to remember our fallen – but please stay within your ‘bubble’.
