Christchurch Earthquake 22.02.2011

Posted: February 23, 2011 in All

Our thoughts are with all those affected by the recent devastating earthquake in Christchurch on the 22nd of February 2011. We have family in the area and they are ok although very shaken and concerned for others worse affected, as we all are.

There are a number of websites that can be used for up-to-date information:
