TUT April 2019

Anybody forgotten to turn back their clock earlier this month and ended up missing the occasion for a sleep in? April already and with that, we’re well into Autumn (although it sometimes feels like winter!).

Welcome to another issue of the Talk up Taihape. Plenty to talk about!

    We recently visited Taihape for a couple of hours while staying at Palmerston North during our trip to New Zealand. Our main purpose was to visit the cemetery as two of my relatives, Mavis Rothwell (and her husband, William), and Maria Severinsen, are buried there. We found the graves with little problem, and found the cemetery neat and tidy, with a beautiful view across to the mountains. We also had coffee at the delightful Brown Sugar Café.
    Would you be able to send me your newsletter please?
