This week we wel­come hun­dreds of young row­ers from all around the coun­try who have ar­rived in Cam­bridge for the 2017 Aon Maadi Cup Re­gatta, be­ing hosted at Lake Kara­piro. It fol­lows on from the North Is­land Sec­ondary Schools Row­ing Cham­pi­onships also held at Kara­piro a few weeks ear­lier. We’re worked hard to bring you a spe­cial liftout with a col­lec­tion of sto­ries look­ing at the his­tory of Maadi Cup, some fa­mil­iar faces who have com­peted at the event and moved on to higher honours, as well as a look at the vol­un­teers who work hard be­hind the scenes to make it a suc­cess. Mov­ing away from sport, there’s lots hap­pen­ing in busi­ness around Cam­bridge as well. A fam­ily home will be moved to make more room for much­needed com­mer­cial space near the town cen­tre, open­ing up more op­por­tu­ni­ties for com­merce. A trio of en­trepreneurs have also set up a hub which ideally will be used by home-based busi­ness, to con­duct meet­ings and talk with clients.
