Governor's Visit

Four Generations

Three Times Now


The Gisborne West Rotary Club were hosts to Rotary district governor Fred Beattie when he visited Gisborne recently. Pictured together before the club's weekly tea-meeting are, from left, past president Jack McKay, president Rab Neilson and district governor Fred Beattie.


Out at Manutuke we have four generations, which includes, of course a very proud great-grandmother. She is Mrs J. Lawrence, 86, who is holding her great-granddaughter, Deborah Haskins. At right is Deborah's father, Malcolm Haskins, while on the left is his mother, Mrs Evelyn Haskins.


For the third year in succession Stuart Livingstone, 11, of 356 Clifford Street, has won the J. Wattie Canneries' Challenge Cup for the under-14 brass instrumental solo in the Gisborne Competitions. Stuart, a very promising young musician who plays tenor horn in the Gisborne Federal Brass Band, is a pupil of Mr Bill Leighton. Stuart is a grandson of the late Mr Charlie Hansen, a former well-known bands-man and cornet player.
