We Say, You Say: Paeroa Racecourse

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hauraki Herald

With a snip of the bolt cutters, the Paeroa community was welcomed back to their racecourse after an eight year absence.

The site was a purchased on November 3 by joint buyers the Wright Family Foundation, established by Wayne and Chloe Wright, and local developer Tim Bartells. Community leaders have made proposals for the site including a caravan park for the annual highland games, a twilight market or commerical and residential development.

What would you like done with the site?

International Museum Day at Thames Museum

Carolyn from Thames

Tuesday May 18th is INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY and the theme for 2021 is “RECOVER and REIMAGINE”.
Just like all Museums around the world, Thames Museum has seen visitor numbers drop due to international travel restrictions. As we actively engage more with our community the response from Thamesites has been heart-warming. We really appreciate all the visits and encouragement we are getting from locals. Thank you, wonderful people! You are keeping us going.
“Reimagining” our museum spaces, we have set up activities for children and broadened our free family history research resources. Our displays are constantly evolving.

Thames Museum is run entirely by volunteers. If you would like to join our volunteer teams, please call in or phone 0278686072. We’re open Friday to Wednesday, 10am to 3pm.
