Shelly Bay revamp tipped A mini San Francisco could be on the cards at Shelly Bay after the area has been called for a major overhaul in the future. Plans, which are in the very early stage, include ferries that run to and from the city centre and a cable car up to new housing above the bay. It is also understood that restaurants, a brewery and shops are also planned for the run down area. Last year Mayor Celia Wade-Brown and the Port Nicholson Block Settlement trust signed a memorandum of understanding, which outlined guiding principles for land on the Miramar Peninsula.
Gavin Cameron celebrates their butcheries win.
Cameron Harrison Butchery wins gold Cameron Harrison Butchery in Ngaio is celebrating the announcement that they have won gold for ham at 100% NZ Bacon and Ham Awards. This latest award will be added to their already extensive list of small goods awards. Cameron Harrison Butchery was established by Rob Cameron and Simon Harrison in 2009 and they were awarded a gold medal for their Manuka smoked boneless ham. The previous 100% New Zealand Bacon and Ham medallist and 2014 Ham of the Year winners are delighted at the gold medal
award. “It is really good for us. We receive wonderful feedback from our customers and this reinforces the quality of the product for us,” says Simon. Organisers of the award tell us that the recipe for Cameron Harrison’s gold medal ham is a “tried and true recipe they have been crafting for many years” and that “a lot of hard work and attention to detail goes into each and every” one of Cameron Harrison Butchery hams. The butcher’s small goods can be found at their Ngaio and Kelburn
butcheries, at Moore Wilsons, and recently at New World in Thorndon. NZPork Chairman Ian Carter says that the 100% New Zealand Bacon and Ham Awards celebrate New Zealand Pork’s farm to plate story. “It is great to be able to feature the best of 100% New Zealand Bacon and Ham for the eighth year running. As a farmer myself, seeing and tasting the exceptional small goods entered into the competition each year really highlights the wonderful farm to plate story of New Zealand’s pork industry.”
