History of the Skate & Leisure Centre now known as the
The Skate & Leisure Centre in Paeroa used to be "Farmers Trading Company". After "farmers" left a few outlets made use of the building, from weekend clothes shopping for seconds, Gambles Furniture Store, then finally the empty building we found in 2000. A big dream of Pauline Stewart to fundraise for a centre for children in our community. This seemed the perfect place and after many meetings 120 Normanby Rd was bought.
