We’re six months on from the February 22 earthquake and we take stock of that shattering event. It was a day that ended lives, jobs and completely altered the look and feel of our town. On the back of September 4th these events have brought almost a year of heightened emotion, change and shaky ground. Naturally some days have been better than others. As we work our way through all the decisions we have to make and questions we have to find answers for it still important to take time for families, friends and neighbours. I hope that as we pass the 6 months from February and edge closer to the 12 months of September that you are all able to take a little memorial time with those close to you.
