Waiting for perfection….

Mercer cheese story April 2016

A story in our local paper tells of our local cheese maker, Albert Alferink, who owns and runs Mercer Cheese along with his wife.

Some years ago, a news item and video were broadcast telling of Albert and his award winning cheeses.

The Mercer Cheese store was opened in 1981, and Albert will be able to celebrate his more than 35 years in business.

If you are heading south from our area, toward Hamilton then, check out the business hours and pay a visit to try some wonderful cheeses!!

Franklin – a little bit of our heritage

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 : –

A local Franklin resident has put out some information on intended water upgrades in the area

Will this really help? or will it be more of a concern for the future of the area?
