Recap: the week ended 27 September

Think Papanui’s curator Simon Britten rounds up stories from the past week:

I shared some photos from the Plant and Seed Swap that was held at Papanui Library last Saturday.

Top post of the week: Papanui-based community organisation Te Ora Hou Ōtautahi has released some concept images of their site development.

Breakfast burritos were on the menu at a community protest ahead of the Council’s consideration of transport projects downstream of the Christchurch Northern Corridor.

A revised re-opening date of 7 October has been announced for Redwood library, following an extended period of repairs.

The Christchurch Youth Council has surveyed local body election candidates.

The Council has approved the proposed transport projects downstream of the Christchurch Northern Corridor, as recommended by the recent joint Community Board meeting.

Coming up:

  • The Positive Ageing Expo runs from 9am to 2:30pm this Monday 30 September.
  • The St Albans meet the candidate forum starts at 7pm on Monday 30 September, and will include Papanui Ward candidates for Council and Community Board.
  • There will be closures on St James Avenue this coming week, to allow chipseal replacement.

With warm regards
