Go Christchurch

Christchurch is turning into the Events Capital of New Zealand, there’s been so much going on lately.

From international sporting events to massive outdoor concerts, the local must-do calendar has been jam-packed.

SailGP was fantastic. Lyttelton and the harbour were looking absolutely brilliant, and showed what a beautiful place we live in, and that we can host large, world-class events without a hitch.

More than 1500 athletes competed at the NZ Surf Life Saving Champs at New Brighton Beach. It was a great weekend of competition. Many more participated in or watched the iconic Coast-to-Coast and City to Surf events, and we have had an amazing summer of weather for all these events too.

Handing out the medals at the Weetbix Kids Tryathlon at Jellie Park was a real pleasure, and I have to say I was impressed at seeing so many parents supporting their children. They must have had to get up at the crack of dawn. A great effort from all of those concerned.

We had 30,000 people at Electric Avenue in Hagley Park and 20,000 students have enrolled at the University of Canterbury this year, the highest we’ve ever had.
It shows Christchurch has become a cool place to be.

We’re going forward, there’s a real buzz around town. I know our city is a fantastic place to live, work, play, and invest in, and clearly more people can see that too.
