Open Days - Hoffman Kiln & old Power Station

Val from Kelvin Grove

Two ‘Industrial Heritage’ open days (afternoons) in the Roslyn area on Sunday, November 10th, are being held in the course of Palmerston North’s Heritage Week activities.

Come and check out either what they are and represent – or what developments might have happened at them since your last visit/s.

The Hoffman Kiln, at 615 Featherston Street, produced a large percentage of the bricks used in Palmerston North and the surrounding region between 1904 and 1959. Come and see how this example of ancient technology operated, and how this kiln site is being developed. The adjoining Edwards Pit Park is the kiln’s former clay pit. The kiln’s open day will run between 12:00 noon and 4:00pm

The old Palmerston North Electric Power Station, at 162 Keith Street (alongside Terrace End Cemetery) produced the original public electricity generation to Palmerston North and the surrounding district during 1924, preceding the Mangahao Hydro Dam’s opening in November 1924. It then partly became Mangahao’s sub-station. Its huge British Polar 1936-installed diesel engines still run, and with do so ‘on the hour’ between 12:30pm and 4:00pm during the open day.

Both these buildings are Category One heritage sites. Admission to both is free, but donations are welcomed (enthusiastically!) as such sites are very costly to preserve – and each has its own special (and significant) preservation needs. Naturally both sites are also ‘enter at your own risk’ – and please park with care.

Included in your rates

Ken from Awapuni

Why on earth would my exorbitant rates bill, which has just arrived, include a request to conserve water, when the Mayor has previously stated that the city doesn't have a water supply problem and refuses to consider the need for an alternative/additional supply?

Who's setting off fireworks tonight?! 😄💥

Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

❌ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

🔥 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

💦 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

👧 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

🧰 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

📞 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

🐱 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

🐮 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

🌿 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.

If you have courageously decided to move house, do it assured of a top purchase in Palmerston North's dress circle.
We proudly offer 25 Elmira Avenue, a well maintained prestigious 1930's character home with architecturally designed family room and modern kitchen added, including welcome outdoor living.
The oohs and ahhs start at the front gate, observing a low maintenance cottage garden & mature trees for spring delight.
Opening the colonial front door is like unwrapping an unexpected gift. Everywhere you look there are charming attributes of post-war era, including singe & bi-fold colonial windows with brass latches & small panes of beveled glass. They capture views of a highly regarded tree-lined street.
Leadlight windows & crafted light shades accentuate a tall stud & glowing timber floors. In the front parlour, a magnificent stone fireplace dominates the room. Open the connecting doors to the formal dining & you have created space for the big family Christmas, an intimate family wedding or a busy club meeting. Gas heating in the formal dining and family room & heat-pump upstairs make a very cosy winter.
The modern addition of an architecturally designed family room includes a magnificent rimu kitchen with black granite bench top. Bosch stainless steel appliances abound and the warm & welcoming living space opens to outdoor living & a beautifully planted rear garden.
Adding a modern second bathroom beside the laundry is very convenient for family & guests & compliments the renovated & tiled bathroom upstairs. There's also a toilet room on the landing.
You can enjoy hosting extended family or guests knowing they are well accommodated. There are four large bedrooms upstairs including the main bedroom with its twin wardrobes & built in dresser. Downstairs a fifth bedroom or large office is just beside the front door.
A single garage & large carport plus plenty of paved off-street parking suggests the space & potential for future development in your own time.
Viewing by appointment only.
