The impact of the Earthquake that shook the city of Christchurch on 22 February may have slipped from the front pages, but its devastating impact on the landscape – and the people – is very real indeed. The Central Business District is slowly being opened, with decisions about which buildings are to be pulled down and which will be repaired.

  1. You got the date wrong! – (I know, I live there). It was the 22nd Feb – A quick edit might help with confidence with the rest of the article – Bob

    • Hi Bob
      Yes, thanks for the correction – I always try to get facts right but it’s a hazard of doing a daily blog I’m afraid! I have changed it! Do keep coming back and reading….
      Regards
