On Sunday UC QuakeBox moved to a site beside the Brooklands Community Hall.  It will remain there for the next two weeks, allowing Brooklands and Spencer Park residents and former residents the chance to record their stories about the earthquakes, the aftermath, and their memories of the community they are leaving.

UC QuakeBox is open 12 pm to 6 pm every day, including weekends.

After Brooklands, UC QuakeBox will be collecting stories in Lyttelton, Sumner, and at the Christchurch A&P Show.
