– Brighton Mall, New Brighton, Canterbury, New Zealand

I was working in Brighton Craftshop when the Feb quake happened. It was terrifying as two of us just held onto a customer. The walls shook we thought the glass windows were going to smash. It was my moment to sell lots of hats in the panic I just gave them to her.

Going home took 2 hours usually 15 minutes passed QE2 pool to Hills Rd where all the roads were damaged and cracked water everywhere. When I finally got home the road opened up with fountains of water. I’ve lived in Christchurch all my life always a safe place to be in hopefully will rebuild again to something really beautiful.
