Mapua - The good, the bad, and the ugly


Room 6 would like to thank these people for their assistance with gathering information about the Fruitgrowers Chemical Company site, both past and present:

  • Jenny Easton, the person who has been responsible for monitoring the rules set down by the environment court

  • Ian Reade, Mapua resident

  • Frank (and Rosina) Robb, former employee of the Chemical Company and residents of Mapua

We also found the Tasman District Council information valuable and thank them for permission to use some of their photos.
