AFFIRM is a fantastic community event for all ages – my favourite this side of Christmas – and in this tenth edition it was clear that there still is a strongly united neighbourhood in Aranui.
Everybody enjoyed the “Aranui Top Team” competition, some of the tasks the teams had to do were hard but made all the supporters and spectators laugh, have you ever watched a multi-person sack race? It is quite amusing!
At the Christchurch City Libraries’ tent people had the opportunity to record their earthquake memories in the Plains FM recording POD, they will be added to the CCL’s permanent collection as it is such a special part of our city’s history. Have you donated your earthquake story yet?
The Pasifika performances from local groups got us all dancing and Ladi6 paid homage to her origins by giving it all on stage.
Kia kaha vibrations were in the air.
