CCBA Latest News - October 2020

Our AGM was successful on Tuesday night and very well attended. We would like to thank our attending members and in particular the members who stood in the election. We had seven vacancies with nine candidates standing for executive positions.

We would like to welcome our new executive and if you would like to see who they are please CLICK HERE to view their profiles. Our Chair Annabel Turley was elected unopposed along with our Treasurer Shaun Stockman and Secretary Nicki Carter and we would also like to thank them for their continued efforts here in the central city.

We presented our Annual Report, audited Financial Report and carried out an item of special business which was a proposal to change an item within our constitution. This was unanimously passed by attending members.

We heard from our guest speaker Tony Sewell, project Director, Catholic Cathedral Precinct and former CEO of Ngai Tahu speak about the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch’s plans for a Catholic Community Precinct & Catholic Cathedral north of the Square on the block between Colombo & Armagh Streets and Oxford Terrace. He was very enlightening.

Vantage Criterium National Championships

The proposed inner-city Christchurch circuit offers a traditional criterium taking in iconic Christchurch landmarks such as the Avon River, Bridge of Remembrance and the Art Gallery.

It is adjacent to the bars and restaurants of the famous Oxford Street, and with more cafes and bars lining the proposed course, it will make for a spectator-friendly, fast-paced afternoon of entertainment. MORE INFO

City Farmyard 

Brought to you by the Canterbury A&P Association

The City Farmyard will offer the chance to get up close and personal with lambs, calves, bunnies, ducklings, chickens...and a heck of a lot of fun for all ages.

There will also be games, live music and food trucks around, for those who just fancy dropping in and enjoying the sun. You will not need a ticket to access the green, only if you wish to attend the Farmyard. MORE INFO
