A boating business previously based at Pegasus is busy plying its trade on the Kaiapoi River.

The boat hire company KORE is based in the town alongside the river near the Mandeville Bridge.

Kayaks, row boats and stand-up paddle-boards are available for use.

A group of Christchurch students experienced a day out recently as part of their end-of-term fun activities, visiting Kaiapoi with their teacher Lisa Barr.

KORE owner Simon Rutherford, who lives in Silverstream, said: “We are loving Kaiapoi River for a base.”

Bookings can be made by phoning or texting Simon on (021) 669474.
