Recovery centres reducing their hours

5:28 am on 2 April 2011

Recovery Assistance centres in Christchurch are reducing their Saturday hours because fewer people affected by February's earthquake are seeking help.

The centres will now be open on Saturday from 9am until midday.

They are: Linwood Community Link, Wainoni Aranui Family centre, Parklands Baptist church, St Faith's Hall, Nga Hau e Wha Marae, Delta Community Support Trust, Sydenham Community Centre and Lyttelton Recreation Centre.

They offer help from agencies such as Housing New Zealand, the Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

Three Work & Income Centres will be open from 10am - 2pm in Riccarton, Linwood and Hornby.

All recovery assistance centres and Work & Income centres will be closed on Sunday.
