Off To Napier

New Arrivals

Birthday Party



Although it means promotion, Jim and Peggy Cherry are not consumed with joy at having to leave the tremendous view offered from their lovely home on Wakefield Quay. Jim has been the Nelson district schools' traffic instructor, Ministry of Transport, since coming to Nelson six years ago. He goes to Napier as senior traffic instructor. At their right is their daughter, Jennifer, live-wire teacher at Nelson Intermediate. She's planning to go to Wellington next year.


Cook on the "Cook" is the occupation given by Ian Regan who with his wife, Jean, and son, Brett, came to Nelson from Feilding recently. Ian is a keen "mucking-about-with-cars" man, and at present is planning to put a Morris 8 sports body on the cut-down chassis of a Daimler Consort. (Anybody got a spare body?)


Residents of the Hebron Eventide Home, Shelbourne Street, had their birthday party at the home recently. The total age of these five ladies is 430 years. From left they are Mesdames Helena Thompson (81), Daisy Heath (86), Florence Vautier (91), Sarah Shirtliff (86) and Kate Schroder (86).


Ken Walkey, manager of Timber Distributors for the last 20 years, retired last month. He was given presentations by the staff at a staff function. From left, Flo and Eric Taylor (new manager), Ben Stone, Win and Ken Walkey, Merv Davidson and John Wiggins, all senior members of the staff.
