    Toasting beer and the Bible
    By Emma-Jane McLennan - Friday, April 18th 2014:

    BEER AND the Bible work seamlessly together for the Hebrews boys. The Christchurch Christian brewing group meet regularly to create craft beers in their homes, then share them with their peers. It all started a couple years ago at Laidlaw College in Papanui, where Lukas Theilmann was studying theology. "Me and a guy called Jethro were studying, and we both brewed our own beer. So we started our own group, and when he moved to Auckland I kept it going," he said. The Hebrews crew make craft beers for groups such as The Society...

    Talks to ease estuary sea wall flood risk
    By Cullen Smith - Monday, April 14th 2014:

Severe southerly storms last month left many Southshore properties inundated after driving winds forced Estuary water through damaged sea walls that had been maintained previously by the people who lived there. But since the Crown purchases of red zone properties and CERA's demolitions the protective edge around the Estuary has fallen into d...

    Crime cameras a big welcome
    By Fiona Thomas - Monday, April 14th 2014:

    Merivale residents are welcoming the installation of a new crime camera on the corner of Aikmans Rd and Papanui Rd. The camera, one of 10 new crime cameras city wide, came online last week and was aimed at increased late-night activity in the area.

Somerfield mother Erin Wilmshurst, whose two daughters aged two and four attend Pioneer, told the Southern View the city council had not considered the potential effect on the community.

He said his "history buff" brother Luke was desperate to join him on the trip. "Luke had obviously found out I had an extra ticket a...

    Cycle groups angry
    By Fiona Thomas - Monday, April 7th 2014:

    Cycle groups and community leaders are angry that there will be no separated cycleway running alongside the new western corridor motorway. Just days after the city's fourth cycle fatality in 15 months, cycle groups say the proposed cycling infrastructure for the major road is not enough to keep commuters safe. Sharla Haerewa, a 22-year-old nursing student, was killed while cycling along a painted cycleway on Lincoln Rd last Wednesday morning after colliding with a truck. The new western corridor, which will connect Belfast a...
