Christchurch is mine and Debra’s home city.
We were both brought up there as children, we went to school, got our first jobs, got married, bought our first home, three of our children were born there. So many memories of a great place to live.
After the earthquake in 2011, it all changed for me ……… I had thought that we might move back there from Wellington for our retirement but it’s changed so much that I’m not sure we want that any more.
The pages in this section show some of my Christchurch from ‘before’ the earthquake, some of the day of the earthquake and aftermath and some of the ‘new’ Christchurch that is ever so slowly emerging.
