William Francis Buckland

In an opinion piece in this week’s Cambridge Edition Cambridge Chamber of Commerce invokes the legacy of two gentlemen who played formative roles in the establishment of our town. Our first New Zealand born mayor William Francis Buckland. You can study up on Mayor Buckland’s contribution to our town during his two terms as Cambridge mayor, at the beginning of the 20th Century, on the Cambridge Museum website. And of prime importance surveyor Charles Heaphy‘s (Bio) design for the town which gives enjoyment to residents and visitors to this day. Reflecting on the work of these two men among others, it is suggested, gives sustenance to those planning for the future. I agree.
