2nd April 1964, Otago Daily Times. Members of the Otago Vespa Club returned from the Auckland Easter Show.
I’m searching for more information and details about Scooter House Ltd (incorporated 1954), and Lambretta Service Centre (incorporated 1964, and retained that name until 1971 when it was renamed Fullerton Motorcycles Ltd). Both shops in Auckland, although Scooter House was bought by Tom McCarron and relocated to Rukuhia. Any leads or tips appreciated.

UPDATE FRIDAY 20TH JANUARY 2012
Function at the Junction Blenheim 2012
Waitangi Weekend – February 4th – 6th
Spring Creek Junction, Blenheim
Many thanks to all those who have registered already, numbers are growing daily.
We have extended the registration period for an additional week after having spoken to the caterers. The last day for registration is now Friday 27th January.
The patches are printed and looking pretty smart!
Reference accommodation : Spring Creek Motel still has rooms available, I believe the Junction Hotel still has 3 rooms available and free camping is still an option (facilities however are very basic).
Fuel is not available at the Spring Creek service station over the holiday weekend, fuel is available at Shell garages in Picton and Blenheim.
