SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at Tuesday October 31 2017 7 News Local News Now Fire rages, homes at risk COMPLETED: Lincoln High School’s new outdoor mural captures the beauty of Mahoe Reserve in Lincoln. ​ Reserve mural at school A OUTDOOR mural capturing the beauty of Mahoe Reserve has been completed at Lincoln High School. The new mural located at school’s tuck shop was painted by the school’s sustainability council over the school holidays. Over the past school holidays students spent hours painting the new mural designed by artist and Springston resident Mike Glover. The students chose to embark on the project as a way of raising awareness of the school’s sustainability council and to demonstrate what the Lincoln environment has to offer. This ranges from native plants in the Mahoe reserve to the township’s church and Lincoln being the first Envirotown in New Zealand. The project was supported by the Lincoln Farmers’ and Craft Market. Year 13 student Amy Burney said it taught students the importance of working together with the community to promote awareness of the environment. COVERED UP: Reserved car-parking signs have been removed from outside a line of shops in Lincoln. ​ Reserved car parks have been removed • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding RESERVED car parking signs outside shops and a hairdresser in Robert St Lincoln have been removed. The signs painted in as a response to tow away and clamping signs put in by the Black Door Bar and Eatery on car parks on the other side of the street in June. It was a tit-for-tat type of move as on street car parking in expanding Lincoln becomes a premium. The Black Door removed the tow away and clamping signs after the district council ruled the 12 car parks outside its premises were not for their exclusive use. The same applies to the car parks at 5 Robert St, the district council says. The car parks in Robert St have 120min restricted parking. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think car parking in Lincoln is a problem?
