I can’t imagine what it must be like to be enduring earthquake after earthquake in Christchurch right now. All I can say is that I think Cantabrians must be made of very stern stuff indeed and that a huge dose of pioneering stoicism from the past is clearly alive and well.
The stories we are hearing of the amazing community spirit in Christchurch make me want to cry with joy at the generosity of the human spirit in times of need. My heart goes out to all my friends and indeed anyone who is living through this hell.
While our friends in Christchurch are suffering, it gives me cold comfort to report that at Pegasus there has been no infrastructure damage from the recent 5.5 and 6.3 earthquakes on Monday 13th June, in spite of them being strongly felt in the town.
All land, buildings, infrastructure and services including power, water supply, gas, telecomms and storm water are undamaged and operating as normal. All businesses including the golf course, Bunker Cafe, General Store and Flat White Cafe are open seven days.
Kia kaha Christchurch! Like the phoenix, you will rise again together. Stay strong.
