Today is the two year anniversary of the Christchurch earthquake – Chch people are, as usual, responding with great creativity and charm

Ruth's Reflections

A hi-viz vest now covers a tree on the old Manufacturers’ Association site at the corner of Manchester Street and Cambridge Terrace.

It’s the work of Peter Majendie, who also created the earthquake memorial with the 185 white chairs.  The tree has been decorated in preparation for tomorrow’s second anniversary of the February earthquake, to mark the launch of a new earthquake fund.

The border was sewn on to the cloth by Joyce Majendie, the artist’s wife.

“I’ve never seen a tree so bright
or hi-viz vest of such a height.”
