Cambridge’s very own Soldiers Rd Portraits are on tv again!

Taaniko and Vienna in Leamington earlier today

Taaniko & Vienna in Leamington earlier today

Cambridge’s entrepreneurial sisters-in-law Taaniko Nordstrom & Vienna Nordstrom, and Soldiers Rd Portraits owners, during their fifth television interview (TV2’s Totes Maori), since the February launch, earlier today at their Leamington HQ. The buzz around their venture has garnered 8,735 Facebook Likes and inspired Maori TV, TV3 and now TV2 to feature their successful business story. Developed over a two year period (2011-2012) Soldiers Road has toured Australia three times since February and gigged upwards of twenty times around Te Ika a Maui. The next Soldiers Road ‘at home’ is Saturday the 14th of September 2013. Check it out.

Go here to join the fun

Not sure about anyone else, but I find this amusing – if not a little stylish. Goneburger is parked opposite the town hall in Victoria Street beside Victoria Square Cambridge NZ.

NB 8PM: there is a small village of brightly lit mobile food stalls here on this late winter Saturday evening.

Leamington School, milk and one very tall Chief

At Leamington School 'milk in schools' launch this morning

At Leamington School ‘milk in schools’ launch this morning

Just down the road from me. Something of a publicity stunt; milk tankers in blue, tractors & quad bikes in green, Leamington Primary School students in blue, rugby players in black & gold, the organisers in hi viz. All very colourful. All very corporate. I’m sure the kids had a great time. PS in researching this I discover they did use real live farmers in those rather frenetic tv ads. Well there you go.

Hamilton Road Cambridge New Zealand

Midday on the 1st of June 2013; our autumn has been longer and later than usual. Bryce Street is behind us, the road to Hamilton (SH1) on our left. We are looking toward the SH1B turn off. SH1B begins with Victoria Road to the left, rejoining SH1 at Taupiri. Hamilton Road becomes Victoria Street at the pedestrian crossing on the St Andrew’s Church corner ahead.
