How well do you know Raglan?

How well do you know Raglan Whaingaroa, the reasons behind its street names, the significance of landmarks or the history of people who have passed through the area?

 In an occasional series, Raglan Museum volunteers will reveal the town’s past – everything from the demise of the Old School’s swimming pool, our oldest society (horticultural –it turns 120 this year)  to the importance of Eva Rickard’s land protest.

 Ever wondered where Norrie Avenue got its name, or what was below the rugby fields before the estuary was closed off from the sea? The series will provide some of the answers in words, photographs and maps.

 Keep a look out in forthcoming editions of the Chronicle!
