Our thoughts are with our Cantabrian sisters, their whanau and families during these extremely difficult times. Kia kaha, kia maia, kia manawanui. Our Christchurch Board member - Janine Morrell-Gunn - has e-mailed to say: "So scary but all safe. Still no power and water. We have moved to Jases mums - kids settled. Lots of damage but it's just stuff. Neighbours have lost their homes. Whitebait cleared by engineers and up and running from tomorrow."
