Sat 9.00am-4.00pm Ph: 383 2114 269 Burwood Rd, Burwood The Duncan-Caley’s son Connor, 8, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in June last year, which then caused him to develop Posterior Fossa Syndrome, leaving him unable to blink, swallow, move or talk. He has undergone several operations, weeks of radiation, and Parklands Lotto & Post four months of chemotherapy. On top of that Connor’s father Mark Duncan-Caley lost his job when the company he worked for went into liquidation, and the earthquake-damaged house they bought as an ‘as is where is’ is now subject to insurance issues. So the community has rallied around to help them out with a fundraising art auction. Connor and his parents are currently living at the Wilson Centre in Auckland, which provides a rehabilitation service for children. •Turn to page 5 Beautiful Gemstone gifts from THE EARTH $ 11 .99 each 60 Queenspark Drive, Parklands Shopping Centre Ph 383 0303 Late Nights: Wednesdays & Saturdays Authorised by Jo Hayes Unit 6/950 Ferry Road, Christchurch Freedom campers come under fire again • By Sophie Cornish THE SPOTLIGHT is going on freedom campers parking up from North Beach to South New Brighton. Forty complaints about their activities were made to the city council between October and late February. More than 300 comments were posted on the People’s Independent Republic of New Brighton Facebook page debating the freedom camping issue. A North New Brighton resident, who only wanted to be named as Nicky, was outraged when she saw a freedom camper washing her underwear in a drinking fountain in the North Beach car park on February 24. In spite of being asked to stop by Nicky and another woman, the freedom camper continued. “I told her, we don’t like this, this is disgusting, kids drink out of this including mine, can you please go and do it in the changing rooms, this is a drinking fountain, but she just shrugged it off . . . I just found it really unhygenic.” •Turn to page 5 LOVE YOUR LIVER!
