1976-2011: Photograph taken Saturday the 17th of September 2011.
There’s much happening around the highest point in Leamington; the highest point in the whole of Cambridge! Lauriston Park Retirement Village rockets towards completion. Next door – well, down the hill just a bit – Cambridge Tavern – sad shadow of it’s former self is ending its 35 year tenure of the corner of Campbell and Burns streets in the next few weeks. The area bounded by Campbell, Shakespeare, Raleigh and Burns is referred to, I see, in one document floating about, as Leamington Shopping Centre – well I suppose you would call it that, I guess, even if not strictly true. There is other stuff going on in there; Raleigh Street Christian Centre & Cambridge Montessori Preschool (the southern centre that is). And a new smallish tavern, a supermarket and ? – a shopping centre will be nice if well done.

And how rude – I didn’t even ask these two Cambridge High School students their names – wandering quietly as they were at 1:30 in the afternoon (with a friend who did not wish to be photographed) across the freshly re-open Victoria Bridge eating GelatAmore Ice Creams – btw yes, exams!!
No new news yet on the fate of Victoria Bridge one of the two bridges across the Waikato River which link the two sides of Cambridge New Zealand; Cambridge and Leamington. 11:50AM 5/9/2011. This photograph was taken on Wednesday the 31/8/2011
The Waikato Times moves from evening to morning publication 5/9/2011 – fetched from the shop. The NZ Herald arrives in our mailbox at some point in the wee hours. Will we change?
Two morning newspapers, a burst water main and a cherry tree. Spring is sprung. Oh! and the tui!
PS a campanulata hybrid I’m told.
