Tuesday walking group

Tuesday walking group

The Tuesday walking group pause in Cook Street, Leamington, New Zealand this morning the 12th of January 2010 for a photograph. Behind them is Victoria Bridge (they have just crossed it from Cambridge beyond) which has spanned the Waikato River for 100 years. This walking group – there are others – has been in existence for twelve years.

One thought on “Tuesday walking group

  1. Hi Michael

    We may not know each other but I went to school with a guy named Bruce(?) Jeans – 1942 to 1957? Anyway. I came upon your website by accident when I went into National Hotel CB in Google. A sorry sight! I was Jenifer Foster and grew up and was educated in Cambridge from where I took flight in 1962 upon my marriage. I lived at 64 Queen street Cambridge (now replaced with a modern house?) My brother Jack worked as a barber for Bush Hooker in Empire Street. My sister Pat, worked at a shoe shop in Duke Street as well as part time for Mr Richards who had the Regent theatre sweet shop. I well remember the Riviera Milk Bar in Duke Street.

    I was looking for accommodation for myself and four of my friends (all ex-Cambridge Primary School pupils) who are meeting for a reunion in Cambridge in July this year.

    I have appreciated your photos of modern Cambridge, but it has little to do with the Cambridge we grew up with. Still very picturesque, though. And much improved. I recall Victoria St laden with Autumn leaves. My special memories are of the guvvy acre (I was an athletics champion in those 1957 years) and the midland Hotel. TeKouti Park.

    Anyway, just touching base with you. The thought of coming back has evoked all kinds of wonderful and weird memories of our beloved town in the minds of all of us.
