Christchurch Visit Day Two

The second day of Dame Patsy's visit to Christchurch began with a meeting with the Canterbury Refugee Resettlement and Resource Centre. A more somber experience than Dame Patsy's last visit to the Centre, the meeting was a chance for members to talk about their sadness following the attacks and how it has affected them and their community.

Dame Patsy then went to Hagley Park to lay flowers at the memorial that has sprung up there. While there she also spoke with overseas media and took the opportunity to chat with police and St John New Zealand staffers who were in the area.

The Emerge Aotearoa choir was there, singing in tribute to the shooting victims and Dame Patsy stopped to listen, even joining in on Tutira Mai Nga Iwi. Image Gallery
