He Puna Taimoana

Les from North New Brighton

Pools are (at the moment) a raging success. Anyone tell me what they thought of them. If you do not know what I am referring to its the " New Brighton Saltwater Hot Pools" Beautiful looking complex, Pity there is no English name on them as well.

Covid-19

Les from North New Brighton

To all the people who protested up and down the country yesterday. THANKS FOR NOTHING. While I appreciate your sentiments about a man,s death at the hands of American Police you completely forgot about the safety of others. This country has just gone through one of the most stringent of times. … View moreTo all the people who protested up and down the country yesterday. THANKS FOR NOTHING. While I appreciate your sentiments about a man,s death at the hands of American Police you completely forgot about the safety of others. This country has just gone through one of the most stringent of times. Many people like myself have spent 2 months in self isolation and many business the same so that you people can thumb your nose at these restrictions. I hope there is no health consequences to this action. True a horrendous thing to happen to ANYONE at hands of the law, but what you people did could be a lot worse for many in this country if an outbreak is the result of your actions.

Zero rates plan scrapped as Christchurch council struggles to contain coronavirus fallout

Residents in Christchurch face a rates increase of between 3.5 and 5.5 per cent next year to plug a $90 million hole in the city council’s purse left largely by the coronavirus pandemic.

Hopes for a much-vaunted lowering of the increase to zero have been dashed, with staff warning the policy would cause “unprecedented” redundancies, jeopardise projects and flout direct advice from the Government.

The authority also faces borrowing more than $100m over the next two years to pay for its coronavirus response and make up for an expected $61.8m in lost dividends from the trading companies it owns.
