This week our town celebrated the 125th anniversary of
public electricity in our town.
Reefton was the first place in the southern hemisphere to get a public supply of electricity,
which was quite an achievement for a small township in 1888!

This weekend we have enjoyed a winter's evening light festival with food, laser lights, music, a market day, a fireworks display;
and a visit from the Minister of Energy, Simon Bridges.
Did you take part in the celebrations?
For our visitors, does your town have a claim to fame?
