A slice of Southland

The 1984 newspaper insert, which was gifted to Mr Rendel, was recently handed over to the saleyards’ staff to exhibit.

Earlier this week, it was hung on the wall in the cafeteria for visitors to view.

Mr Hodgkinson said it was “a bit of Southland history” at one of Invercargill’s oldest establishments.

“A lot of records have been lost through fires and that, so we really appreciate it’s been put together for everyone to see.”
