Hadlee was born in Christchurch, Canterbury (Canterbury Region), New Zealand. He is a brother of fellow national cricketers Dayle Hadlee and Sir Richard Hadlee and son of Walter Hadlee. As well as their flagship George Street store, Arthur Barnett had stores in Balclutha (Balclutha, New Zealand), Alexandra (Alexandra, New Zealand), Oamaru, and Christchurch. They also briefly had a branch in Melbourne, Australia which operated from 1970 to 1977. This branch sold mainly carpeting and furniture. At its peak Arthur Barnett Ltd had over 1200 staff and 19 stores (the 16 former D.I.C. stores, along with its own branches in Alexandra, Balclutha, and Dunedin). However, the merger did not work well and all D.I.C. stores with the exception of Christchurch were closed within 2 years. By 1992 the majority of The D.I.C. assets were disposed of and the company was able to concentrate on its stores in Dunedin, Alexandra, Balclutha and Christchurch. The D.I.C. debacle cost Arthur Barnett around $NZ 20 million and as a result the company had to borrow heavily to help finance the Meridian Mall (Meridian Mall, Dunedin) project in 1995. alias origin Christchurch, New Zealand instrument 1980s: Dance Exponents The group formed in 1981 after vocalist Jordan Luck and guitarist Brian Jones disbanded their first group, Basement, and relocated from the South Canterbury town of Timaru to Christchurch with their ex-Splash Alley friend, Steve "Fingers" Cowan. Searching for a drummer in Christchurch, the trio met David Gent (bass) and Michael "Harry" Harallambi (drums) from punk band Channel 4. Cowan moved from bass to keyboards and guitar and the five piece became The Dance Exponents. Their first gig was at the Hillsborough Tavern on Luck's 20th birthday and Cowan's 22nd - 15 October 1981. A residency at Christchurch's Aranui Tavern quickly earned them a strong live reputation, and on the recommendation of Jim Wilson they were signed by Mushroom Records by Mike Chunn in 1982.

'''Christchurch''' (

The city was named by the Canterbury Association, which settled the surrounding province of Canterbury (Canterbury Province). The name of Christchurch was agreed on at the first meeting of the association on 27 March 1848. It was suggested by John Robert Godley, who had attended Christ Church, Oxford. Some early writers called the town ''Christ Church'', but it was recorded as ''Christchurch'' in the minutes of the management committee of the association. ''A History of Canterbury'', Vol. 1 – Sir James Hight & Straubel, C.R.; Canterbury Centennial Association and Whitcombe and Tombs, Christchurch 1957, Page 121 Christchurch became a city by Royal Charter on 31 July 1856, making it officially the oldest established city in New Zealand.

The river that flows through the centre of the city (its banks now largely forming an urban park) was named Avon (Avon River (Canterbury)) at the request of the pioneering Deans brothers to commemorate the Scottish Avon (River Avon (Falkirk)), which rises in the Ayrshire hills near what was their grandfathers' farm and flows into the Clyde.

The usual Māori (Māori language) name for Christchurch is '''Ōtautahi''' ("the place of Tautahi"). This was originally the name of a specific site by the Avon River near present-day Kilmore Street and the Christchurch Central Fire Station. The site was a seasonal dwelling of Ngāi Tahu chief Te Potiki Tautahi, whose main home was Port Levy on Banks Peninsula. The Ōtautahi name was adopted in the 1930s. Prior to that the Ngāi Tahu generally referred to the Christchurch area as Karaitiana, Ōtautahi (from the Christchurch City Library website) a transliteration of the English word Christian. The city's name is often abbreviated by New Zealanders to '''Chch'''. "Chch ready...", The Southland Times "...injured in Chch bus crash", The Star In New Zealand Sign Language, the city's name is the fingerspelled letter C (made by forming the hand into a C shape) signed twice, with the second to the right of the first, while mouthing "Christchurch".
