Summer entertainment for everyone: Phil Mauger

I hope you had a well-earned summer break and are feeling refreshed for the coming year.

Phil Mauger, New Mayor of Christchurch

had a fantastic time away with my family for Christmas and New Year, but now it’s time to get down to business with a busy year ahead.

Since being back in the office, I have been getting out and about in the city and it is great to see so many people enjoying the cafes, bars, shops, markets, and all the other attractions Christchurch has on offer.

The trams have been full and river banks are packed with people, enjoying the Garden City’s hospitality.

We have been so spoilt with a number of enjoyable, and even spectacular, events over the summer.

The return of the Bread & Circus World Buskers Festival, the Christchurch T20 Black Clash, Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, and Treetech Sparks, to name just a few, have drawn people of all ages to the city, and also to explore wider Canterbury.

Christchurch has a real buzz, and it feels like we have really turned a corner in getting back on our feet after the Covid-19 pandemic ground the city to a halt.

I have a good feeling about 2023, and what better way to showcase our city to the world than by hosting the ITM New Zealand Sail Grand Prix on Lyttelton Harbour in March. Bring it on!
