A delegation from Southbridge New Zealand visited Southbridge yesterday, thanks to Maureen Doyle and Gus Steeves who made the arrangements. Shown below are some photos from their visit.
It is fitting that we reconnected prior to celebrating our 200th next year. In 1966, a letter from Southbridge New Zealand was published in the Sesquicentennial BookMore info on this 1966 celebration can be found here.
