This isn't exactly what I had intended to put up as the first post on this blog.
We are currently still hearing from members as they check in after the earthquake on 22nd February, if you have any news please email ChchWeaveSpin@gmail.com
The Shirley Community Centre is currently closed due to damage. (I hope it isn't too bad - it was at least still standing when I walked past on Wednesday). I will post more updates as soon as I hear anything.
I don't know anything certain about the Observatory building at the arts centre, I have only heard rumours.
Best wishes to everyone, and hope you are all as well as possible in the circumstances.
