Marton in the Rangitikei is a superbly located town for a future where cheap energy will not be able to be taken for granted. Geographically Marton is a node between Wanganui and Feilding/Palmerston North, and is at the junction between the main trunk railway line and the Taranaki - Hawkes Bay railway line. As anyone who lives here knows it is situated in a prosperous agricultural/pastoral area, with plenty of schools and affordable housing.

We meet on an infrequent basis, but with more interest that could change.

We often meet in the Elim Church Hall formerly the White Hart Hotel, corner Broadway & High Sts.

There is no entry fee but a voluntary gold coin koha will be available.
