Heritage Christchurch Announced a Finalist

Heritage Christchurch Announced a Finalist in Canterbury Heritage Awards

Heritage Christchurch has been announced a finalist in the Canterbury Heritage Awards in the tourism category.

The awards honour Canterbury individuals, organisations and companies involved in heritage restoration, retention, promotion or tourism. The biennial awards were first held in 2010 and have since evolved to reflect the changing heritage landscape of Christchurch, post the 22 February 2011 earthquake.

“We are very grateful for the recognition of our hotel in these prestigious awards. Every entrant knows the challenges faced to reprise and maintain a heritage building post 2011. We applaud all our fellow finalists in the awards and look forward to the outcome on 15 June,” says Gary Jarvis of Heritage Hotels.

The winners will be announced at a special awards ceremony event at the Isaac Theatre Royal on Friday 15 June 2018.

Heritage Christchurch is set in the 104-year-old government building (OGB) on Cathedral Square. The hotel offers elegant suites in one, two and three bedroom configurations as well as a health club, lap pool and sauna on site.

The building was designed by renowned architect, Joseph Clarkson Maddison, in an Italian Renaissance Palazzo style. It opened in August 1913 and is considered of ‘monumental’ importance to the city by architecture experts.

In late 2017, Heritage Christchurch was named a winner in the World Luxury Hotel Awards in the Luxury Heritage Hotel category for the Australasia and Oceania region and the Luxury Historical Hotel category for the New Zealand region. The hotel was also a winner in the historical category in 2016.

Joseph Cederwall: The End Of ‘Objectivity’ In Journalism

... and the dawn of something much better?
2019 looks like it might well be another really bad, terrible, not so good year for the traditional journalism model globally. Already in January three leading US digital outlets—BuzzFeed, the Huffington Post, and Vice announced layoffs that have left many accomplished journalists unemployed. Consolidation of journalism looks set to continue unabated as larger (sharky) media conglomerates swallow up smaller players globally. We also appear to be witnessing the death throes of the concept of ‘objective’ truth in journalism. However, perhaps that is not at all as bad as it sounds, and we are just finally waking up to the reality that it never really existed in the first place... More>>


Environment: Government To End Tenure Review

“Tenure review has resulted in parcels of land being added to the conservation estate, but it has also resulted in more intensive farming and subdivision on the 353,000 ha of land which has been freeholded. This contributed to major landscape change and loss of habitat for native plants and animals,” said Eugenie Sage. More>>
