Last Meeting
Ray Tomlinson - World Beater from Lower Hutt
We may well have another world-beating technology in Lower Hutt thanks to our very own Joe Tomlinson and son.  Joe started his painting business in Lower Hutt in the 1960s, shortly after arriving from Scotland.  He built it up very successfully and it grew and still continues to grow under his old second-in-command after his retirement.
