We have a lot of visitors to our market from out side the Waimakariri district and other parts of N.Z. Also a number of stall holders are senior citizens and we do not want them getting infected with the virus and the same applies to all visitors to our market.
We will be in touch with all stall holders to advise when the market will be open again for business.
We look forward to seeing you all in the not too distant future with happy smiley faces.
Take good care out there and look after each other.
Arthur Linnell.
Organiser / manager RANGIORA SUNDAY MARKET.

Banner needs a home (she is truly beautiful)

Catharine from Rangiora

This wee girl was trapped just over a week ago. She is gorgeous and photogenic. Roughly 10-12 weeks old but no idea of her previous background. In all likelihood she and her brother (Quantum) were dumped in the vicinity of Flaxton Rd/Lineside Road. She urgently needs a home so that I can work … View moreThis wee girl was trapped just over a week ago. She is gorgeous and photogenic. Roughly 10-12 weeks old but no idea of her previous background. In all likelihood she and her brother (Quantum) were dumped in the vicinity of Flaxton Rd/Lineside Road. She urgently needs a home so that I can work on socialisting her brother and I don't want Covid19 interfering with her rehoming chances. If you can have her vet checked, vaccinated and desexed as soon as possible then she will be gifted to the right family/owners. She is a med-long hair puss so will need regular grooming. She will also need lots of love, time and patience in order to thoroughly rebuild her trust in humans. I call her 'little cat' as she is so cute when she sits by your feet and looks up at you. Please message me if you would like to view her. There is no obligation - this is about matching her personality and needs and love at first sight is what I am looking for. Happy to answer any other questions. She is called Banner as when I first saw her it was a case of her tail was coming and the rest of her was following :) Thank you for reading this - please ask around friends and family if you are not in a position to help, Banner needs a home.
