Stay safe out there this Labour Day Weekend! Any death on our roads is too many. We're committed to reducing death and injury on our roads. But we cannot do it alone, we need everyone’s help to keep our roads safe.

Stay safe out there this Labour Day Weekend! Any death on our roads is too many. We're committed to reducing death and injury on our roads. But we cannot do it alone, we need everyone’s help to keep our roads safe.

Note on speed threshold: Over the holiday period – 4pm on Friday 19 October to 6am on Tuesday 23 October 2018 – if you're detected by a safe speed camera exceeding the posted speed limit by more than 4 km/h, you are highly likely to be ticketed.

Be patient and considerate, don’t attempt to overtake other traffic unless it’s completely safe to do so. Share the driving if you can. If you can’t and you’re tired, distracted, or feeling fed up, pull over and take a break.

We’ll be out on the roads this weekend targeting known hot spots and risky behaviours such as speed enforcement, drug and alcohol testing, cell phone use, and seat belt checks. We know these are the four main behaviours which contribute to death and serious injury on our roads.

The public can free phone *555 from any mobile, using a hands free kit if you’re driving, to report any non-life threatening road incidents such as erratic driving, non-injury crashes, traffic congestion, breakdowns and obstructions to the highway. In an emergency always call emergency services on 111.

Graduates of Ara Institute of Canterbury’s sustainability and outdoor education programmes really ‘walk the talk’. With sustainability such an integral part of their studies, they’re naturally motivated to put sustainability into action, wherever they can.

Recent graduate Timea Kovacs encouraged local tourism company Christchurch Sea Kayaking to sign up to Tourism Industry Aotearoa’s new sustainability initiative. Now, staff at the kayaking business collect rubbish as they move through the water and clients naturally join in. “We need more businesses, especially tour operators, to showcase this behaviour change,” says Timea.

A cat in North Canterbury has dragged home more than 100 shoes in a series of thefts carried out in darkness.

Shoe stealing is not a new habit for Cooper, a 3-year-old tabby who lives with Charles Buchanan and Jacinta O'Donnell in Rangiora.

Cooper's kleptomaniac ways began late last year and in the first week he stole about 20 shoes, mostly pairs. Since then, he dragged in more than 100 shoes.

Kia ora water-lovers!

Here are some tips to make sure you and your loved ones are well prepared and stay safe:

1. Check the marine weather forecast before you go out, it could save your life! 58% of boaties already check it. We want the other 42% to make it a habit. MetService New Zealand's Marine App makes it easy.

2. Tests your life jackets. Pull hard on the straps and see if any of them stretch or rip. Check all over for any existing tears in the straps and any cuts or punctures in the life jacket. If yes, do not use the life jacket, dispose of it, and replace it. Always check if it floats before putting them on. Keep in mind kapok life jackets should not be used as they can absorb water and sink, their cotton straps also easily rip! Burn them or bin them, but whatever you do - don't use or resell them.

3. For this year's Safer Boating Week, boaties are being reminded to “Prep, Check, Know” - prepare your boat, check your gear and know the rules before going on the water.

Let's put in the time and effort to make sure there are NO water related accidents or deaths this Labour Day long-weekend! Don't forget to look out for each other and report any concerns you have to local authorities.

RANGIORA SUNDAY MARKET, BLAKE STREET CARPARK. This Sunday (Labour weekend). There will be about 40 plus stalls with lots of variety. Don't forget, THOMAS AND FRIENDS for the children to operate in the North Canterbury model Railway club rooms next to the market / carpark, look for the signs. The market is proving to be a great success with happy stall holders and the visiting public. It is bringing more people into town on a Sunday, including people from Christchurch and Amberly. There are more retail shops and great coffee places open in the area now so again more variety for everyone.
