A lick and a polish; Victoria Bridge Cambridge New Zealand

Victoria Bridge Cambridge New Zealand

Victoria Bridge Cambridge New Zealand

Closed for resurfacing this vital link in our infrastructure (one of two bridges connecting Cambridge with Leamington across the Waikato River we need both and could do with a strategy to build a third) will open again at around 11pm this evening. So, while they were at it the ‘grand old lady’ got a bit of a late spring clean at the same time. All good.

FreshChoice Leamington 9/10/2012

And no, I haven’t gone all advertorial.

The opening of a third supermarket within a town of 16/17000 population (discounting those living in our not inconsiderable hinterland) will have significant effects upon the patterns of movement, commerce and socialising within Cambridge. FreshChoice Leamington opened at 10 this morning, Tuesday, the 9th of October 2012 to speeches, a ribbon cutting, bagpipes and refreshments. Located in Leamington, the southern or western half of Cambridge (depending on your point of reference – the Waikato River or your compass), the enterprise is a franchise within the Australian owned Progressive Enterprises group. Oops @leamington Twitter handle; Sorry, that user is suspended – just saying!

Mime; Empire and Duke Cambridge New Zealand

Mime artists Cambridge CBD Wednesday evening

They came into Cambridge CBD this evening, with the rain, as most everyone else was moving off home. Remaining in character so I could not extract any info as to their origin or purpose. A workshop in street mime methinks (with just the merest hint of the Ned Flanders)  – there did appear to be more than just a handful of them – rather than some grand conceptual statement – I may be wrong. Ambush marketing? With the Cambridge Autumn Festival due to kick off close by within the hour hmmm!
