A place where work gets done F
orty years ago it was a wilderness area, home to Ashburton’s rubbish dump, and well used by kids during long hot summer holidays as a place to play and ride bikes. But today, Ashburton’s Riverside Industrial Park is a place of thriving businesses, with some of those who call the park
home, having been its original tenants, others are newcomers, but all share a work environment that comes with big benefits. Riverside is as close to town as it’s possible for a business park to be and yet it is a place of business that has its own special character.
It was born out of what was then the Ashburton Borough Council’s desire to create an area that would attract new businesses to the district but would also provide a central option for existing businesses wanting to relocate and expand. It also had the benefit of concentrating industry in one

The Animal Guardian The world can be a big and scary place. For a tiny, vulnerable and sick kitten it can be even more terrifying when you are left to face it alone. Sadly, we see far too many animals left in frightening situations. This was the reality for little Hudson. When SPCA staff met little Hudson they were shocked. He was absolutely tiny, in a poor state and his fur was crawling with hundreds of ﬂeas. At only a few weeks old, he should have been cuddling up with his mother. Instead, Hudson was ﬁghting for his life. Luckily Hudson was brought to SPCA in the nick of time. He was fed, bathed and nursed back to health by our dedicated team. It wasn’t long before Hudson was ready to ﬁnd a home. It’s no surprise that his lovely kitten was quickly adopted by a devoted family. Without heroes like you, animals like Hudson wouldn’t know safety, love and warmth.
