Generation Pandemic: How has Covid-19 affected your children?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

This week we're looking at how the pandemic will affect our children and their resilience. The Sunday Star-Times wants to hear from children about how they've been impacted by Covid-19 and lockdown. Perhaps they've learned more about hand washing and germs, or maybe they want to talk about having mum or dad home more often, or learning from home. Kids can write a sentence or two to be included in print by emailing kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz, by Friday, July 10, at 5pm. Their first names and ages may be used in print. Parents, if you're happy for your children to be photographed please let us know.

Christchurch recycling in a mess as hundreds of tonnes sent needlessly to landfill

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Christchurch has not managed to get its recycling correct for a single day in the past nine weeks, leaving hundreds of tonnes needlessly being sent to landfill.

Council rubbish collectors have had to dump contaminated residential yellow bin waste every day since May 4, when recycling facility EcoCentral reopened after the coronavirus lockdown.

In that time 635 truckloads of recycling have had to be thrown away – almost half of what has been collected, or about 3175 tonnes. The problem, caused by people throwing non-recyclable waste into their yellow bins, has cost ratepayers about $635,000. Read more here.

Plan to kick out Christchurch Archery Club under fire

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A Christchurch sports club is outraged at plans to boot it out of its home of almost 30 years.

Rawhiti Domain has been the Christchurch Archery Club’s base since 1992, but its lease expires in June 2021​​ and a Christchurch City Council hearings panel does not want a new lease to be granted.

It has instead recommended a month-by-month lease to signal to the club it needs to find “a more appropriate and better site”.

The Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board will have the final say at a meeting on Monday (July 6).
