Greetings Ladies and Gentlemen

Winter is here and now is the best time to be prepared for the colder winter months.  Our immediate needs for adequate food, clean water, warm homes and clothing besides the daily hygienic practices at home or procedures at work are essentials for Good Health & Safe Communities.

COVID-19 Alert Level 1 commences today, Tuesday 9 June 2020.  Well done New Zealand in our united effort and cooperation displayed since Covid-19 lock-down began on Wednesday 26 March 2020.  IT hasn’t been that easy and our thoughts are with those communities and businesses who have been affected up until this point of time.

NZ WOMEN SUFFRAGE CELEBRATION

Hackthorne Garden

CHRISTCHURCH BUSINESS WOMEN CELEBRATION

Celebrating Kate Shephard ~ The New Zealand Election Day 1893 – 2020

A Christchurch woman, Kate Shepard, led the suffragettes attributed for gaining New Zealand women the right to vote in September 1893. New Zealand became the first country allowing all women to vote. She and her group are depicted on a memorial on the riverbank close to the Worcester Boulevard Bridge. The memorial shows the rolled up petition to parliament. It was so large a wheelbarrow was needed to carry it. Prime Minister, Richard Seddon, is credited with the vote for women albeit he, personally, opposed the Electoral Reform Bill. It subsequently passed with a slim majority when two liberal backbenchers voted with the opposition to embarrass their own government and particularly the Prime Minister.  More than 70 per cent of women in New Zealand exercised their right to vote in November, 1893.
