Naming Cambridge New Zealand again and again and again

Crossing Karapiro Hydro Dam

We are at the western lights, on the Maungatautari side of Lake Karapiro, waiting for opposing traffic to clear the one lane that tops the hydro dam so we can cross to the Karapiro side and Karapiro Hydro Village. Though this is not the purpose of this photograph. I’ve talked about the concept Township before.  And of course we are launching forth into that disagreeable season of the Big Little Town or is it Little Big Town promotion that Fieldays inflicts upon Cambridge once a year. Grr.

KWTJubilee chair Kevin Roigard signs off Deb Robinson‘s minutes of the Karapiro, Whitehall, Taotaoroa & Karapiro Hydro Schools 125th Jubilee committee’s 22nd, and final, meeting. Those of us involved in the 20 month long project to plan for, and stage, the 24 – 26 September 2010 event met this evening, Monday, the 29th of November 2010 for a celebratory final meeting at Karapiro School. It has all been a great deal of fun. For more – Karapiro School.

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand – The Boatshed Café

Welcome to Cambridge New Zealand

The Boatshed Café

The Boatshed Café relaunched under new ownership today. Richard and Robyn Clark have split their ten year old business to concentrate on Boatshed Kayaks with Katie Shick coming in as the new owner of  The Boatshed Café. (sorry folks! I may have left out a couple of steps here – but the point being The Boatshed Café & Kayaks is now two businesses). The Boatshed Café overlooking Lake Karapiro from the western shore is a gem that sits opposite the 500-600 metre mark of the 2000 metre Karapiro rowing course – the start line is clearly visible from the property. In the photograph we have from the left; Abiy, Katharina, Sheryl and Katie (Hydro Majestic & Ruby’s Cafe). Cool!

21 Amber Lane, Karapiro, Cambridge 3494, New Zealand +64 7 827 8286. Take SHI south of Cambridge – past the turn off to Karapiro Hydro Village & Mobil Karapiro, right into Gorton Road, left into Amber Lane – you’ll find it!
