It used to be one of New Zealand’s biggest party weekends, but now the Wellington Sevens are looking a little sad.
Gone are the days when shots of the vibrant crowd would hold as much action as rugby field. Tickets used to sell out within minutes! Many groups dressed in matching costumes, with some reports of up to 10,000 people per day filing into the Cake-Tin to cheer on their team. 2017 marked the biggest decline, with former New Zealand Coach Sir Gordon Tietjens claiming “There was just no atmosphere and no people there.”
Clearly, the days of the Wellington Sevens are over, so what’s the solution?
Christchurch Heat Pumps After The Earthquakes
It’s a feeling Christchurch will never forget.
The 2016 Canterbury earthquakes devastated Kaikoura and were felt right across New Zealand. Our hearts go out to those affected families, as many of us in Christchurch are forced to relive memories we’d much rather forget.
We know what it’s like to have our homes shaken and our lives turned upside down. Unfortunately, if you want to live in Christchurch or wider Canterbury, it seems we must accept earthquakes as part of life. We can’t prevent earthquakes in Christchurch, so here are some tips to help recover from them.
Financing Your Next Heat Pump
Heat pumps area big ticket item. That can be an issue. When Christchurch gets cold, or the Canterbury Nor Westerly winds start blowing and your home starts to overheat, heat pumps can help you manage the extreme temperatures to keep you and your family comfortable.
But what if you can’t afford a heat pump right away?
