Franklin has it’s history from all parts of the world –
I’m being a bit lazy here, in that one of our local papers/mags does a great job of capturing bits and bobs from the regions history, which I thought that I would share further. It really is quite interesting how things come about. This case in point is from Clarks Beach – Torkar Road, in fact – so here is some interesting reading : –
Developments at the park include a car park extension near the Pukekohe Netball centre and a new car park to be constructed next to the existing playground.
The new multisport facility will be led by the Bledisloe Park Society. As well as leading the development, the society will be responsible to fundraise and the future running of the facility.
The Franklin Local Board has contributed around $750,000 to the project, in addition to the funding from the Lotteries Commission, Foundation North (formerly ASB Community Trust), and NZ Community Trust.
