Gap Filler

Gap Filler has been set up by a small group of enthusiastic people  who have responded in a creative way to the shock and impact of the recent earthquakes on the central city.

They aim to temporarily activate vacant sites within the central city with creative projects, to make for a more interesting, dynamic and vibrant central city.

What a great idea, and plenty of people have been turning out at the site in Colombo Street.  Items to decorate the space have come from donations and it all looks so much better than a pile of dust and bricks.

coverPerhaps ideas from our books and magazines on home and outdoor decorating could also be of use to Gap Filler, (although judging from the site they have done incredibly well on their own!) Or maybe with all this lovely weather you are planning a bit of outdoor living yourself, and realise that the garden area could do with a new lease of life?

Or try our website for plenty of  Gardening ideas.

    Gap Filler is great! It’s a grand way to spend an afternoon in the sun, stretching into a warm summery evening. Good company and good entertainment make for a winning combo. Oh, and the fact that Mr Whippy turns up only makes it better. 😉

    Gap Filler is a great project. It is working alongside efforts by others in Christchurch, such as the Landscape Institute and Living Streets, to create temporary parks, gardens and arts spaces in the city, starting in some central city demolition sites. Scope for lots of volunteers to be involved after the Christmas holidays – contact Rhys on 021 462 260
