This started life as a weblog for those living in the Avonside area of Christchurch in 2011 & 2012, and for anyone else looking for information or news on earthquake assessment, rebuilding, and related matters.
Now it operates intermittently as and when it would be useful to comment on events or issues relevant to Avonside or the way New Zealand handles disasters and insurance.
The 22nd of August 2013 was the official opening of the Avonside photography project Thx 4 the Memories exhibited along Worcester Street. It consisted of photographs of Avonside people by Bridgit Anderson and Tim Veling along with snippets of their Red Zone experiences as recorded by Glen Busch (original post here).Tim has put together an online book that recreates the exhibition and you can find it by clicking on the first link below. Eventually, once numerous obstacles are overcome, there will be a print version available.Tim has a dedication and endurance second to none and continues to record what is happening where we once lived and how it will all eventually turn out. Tim has done other projects as well and the second link takes you to the projects part of his website.Thx 4 the Memories http://www.timjveling.com/thx-4-the-memories then click on the book cover just below the video.
