Researcher comments/remarks
One of the characteristics which has been evident in the response to the earthquakes in Lyttelton has been the way in which members of the community have gathered in improvised spaces. The deep porch of the Lyttelton Library was used as a temporary location for the Lyttelton Coffee Company while the outdoor furniture was gathered to enable people to meet in the sun. This location was the site for the creation of the blanket hearts, which were hand stitched to decorate the safety fencing erected around damaged buildings. Gathering places such as this became spaces where flyers were put up to spread information.
