The results of the annual Bakels
Supreme Pie Awards are out and
Christchurch has come top in two
categories. Kidds Cake and
Bakery on Cranford St was
awarded the gold for its bacon and
egg pie, while Merivale's Sweet
Kitchen took out the Cafe
Boutique category with an apple,
vanilla bean, frangipane, rum and
The CTV site where 115 people
died in the February 2011
earthquake has been bought by
the Crown as part of the larger
plan to create a world-class new
central Christchurch. The Madras
St site has been cleared of the
rubble and building material. The
Christchurch Central Development
Unit has written to families of the
victims to advise them of the
acquisition. The CTV site will form
part of the east frame, a
predominantly residential area
with green open space. Crown
plans to buy the PGC site in
Cambridge Tce where 18 people
died were ''well advanced'', said
unit director Warwick Isaacs.
Sumner route work
Main Road to Sumner at Rapanui
Rock Reserve will be closed
overnight for up to five nights
starting this Sunday
to allow shipping containers to be
shifted and the fence removed so
that new cycleways can be
installed. A detour will be in place
up Evans Pass Rd, Summit Rd and
through to Mount Plesant during
the 10.30pm to 5.30am closures.
The city council says if conditions
made the detour difficult, work
would stop, and Main Road would
be opened. There will also be two
sets of night closures in the area.
On July 28 at 8pm, stop-go traffic
management will start on
Ferrymead Bridge, taking about
two weeks. Main Road to Shag
Rock will be closed from 10.30pm
till 5.30am for up to five nights
from July 28.

SPARC's 2007/2008 Active NZ
Survey ranked yoga and pilates as
the 12th most popular activities
among Kiwis -- ahead of cricket,
football, rugby and netball -- but
yoga teachers say Christchurch's
earthquakes appear to be boosting
popularity even further.
Instructor Katie Lane, who
hopes to open a new centre --
Grass Roots Yoga and Health --
later this month, said her classes
had doubled in size since Febru-
It's been a really intense time
here the last two years and I think
the interest in things like yoga
and mindful movement is some-
thing that has really helped sup-
port people in this time.''
Massey University Associate
Professor of Disaster Mental
Health, Sarb Johal, said sorting
out insurance and dealing with
EQC and everyday life could be
stressful, and yoga helped by
slowing people down.
It seems clear that people are
seeking out their own solutions
and that people have hit upon
yoga. Pilates would have a similar
impact.'' Bikram Yoga owner Kate
Burford said yoga's rising popu-
larity in Christchurch matched
trends world wide and New Zea-
land was picking up on a move-
ment that had been massive in
America for 10 years.
In the past four years, the US
yoga industry has grown by 29
per cent, a 2012 study by Yoga
Journal has shown.
You can go to New York and
there are hundreds of yoga
schools . . . whereas here we've
always had two or three options,''
Ms Burford said.
Further signs of yoga's popu-
larity can be seen in the retail
area. On Sunday the giant Can-
adian yogawear company Lulule-
mon opened its third New Zea-
land store in the Re:Start mall.
