Wednesday, April 6 E – Eltham
Eltham is a small inland town in South Taranaki in the North Island of New Zealand.
Population June 2015 estimate 2,010.
The town’s main industry is cheese production, with much of Mainland Cheese’s specialty range such as feta and camembert.
Eltham’s other significant industry is the Riverlands freezing works, which has a satellite plant in Bulls, in Manawatu.
Both plants can process up to 1250 head of cattle daily.
Eltham was my home town in the early 1950’s. When I left school late 1955’s. I worked for three years in a bookshop, earning three pounds a week (about six dollars) who would work for that kind of money these days?
I always remember the school motto – Learn by Doing, Knowledge is Power.
It has followed me for the last sixty-five years, I do consider this to be my success in everything I have done all those years – those few little words.
