An apt image, I think, for Cambridge New Zealand, this week, with the opening of our flash new ‘bypass’ a.k.a. more formally the Waikato Expressway Cambridge section.

Hamilton Road SH1 Cambridge New Zealand

Hamilton Road Cambridge New Zealand

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.

Eleventy-one things to do in and around Cambridge NZ

eleventy-one

eleventy-one

A conversation and an idea doing the rounds. This was created between Christmas and New Year 2012, is incomplete, and is heavily biased towards cafés. There are nowhere near 111 items – how about coming up with some more? And oh yes, it’s impossible to read some of it.

Cambridge New Zealand Christmas parade 2011

Karapiro School | Alice in Wonderland

Heaps of fun. Heaps of energy, support and enthusiasm – community / commercial / service / personal. It didn’t rain. I like there being as many folk in the parade as there are folk watching the parade. It’s goodbye to Ann (retiring editor Cambridge Edition) and hello to Cambridge Volunteer Fire Brigade‘s flash new utility rescue vehicle. New World Cambridge do their thing superbly – supportive and practical. Louise is beaming; her Likes having doubled in recent days. On the subject of commercial support and such – big ups to Victoria Station for the best purpose built float by far.  Thumbs down to the real estate firm who cluttered up the pavement outside their establishment with advertising; embarrassing / tacky take your pick. Commercial messages abound and I’m not against them – there were 54 floats / participant groups and organisations in this year’s parade –  Maree tells me – practical and financial support has to come from somewhere – but hey lets see some creativity from our business sector – your commercial message is implicit in your participation.  Then there was the young chap on the PA who had some pronunciation issues – not quite Monty Python but close; Kaipaki really is the easiest name to say if you sound it out. St Peters Catholic School‘s wonderful nativity scene. Middle School band – and of course Karapiro School‘s wonderful Alice in Wonderland extraveganza / production. The flowers are from Karapiro School :) And lots lots more: there are more photos here.

Fieldays traffic Cambridge New Zealand

A yearly occurrence with Ag. Fieldays week traffic flowing through and about our town. Mystery Creek is 14 kilometres to the west. Our bridges are the confluence of north south, east west traffic traversing the Waikato River. It’s not all that bad, seems it has been worse in the past, some hold ups morning and night but that’s about it. Town is always pretty quite during Fieldays week.
