In October of 2006, the Cambridge Historical Society celebrated its 50th Anniversary and a poetry competition was held as part of the celebrations. Entrants’ original poems were to be based on the subject of Cambridge and/or the surrounding districts and we present here the prize winners of each section together with some of the highly commended entries.

Cambridge is a town of trees and horses
And we have Kiwi, Takahe and rolling green hills too
Mount Maungatautari is a giant piece of Cambridge with the non-flying bird, the kiwi.
Beautiful river sparkles in the sunlight like a thousand small diamonds
Remembered for trees and horses
Interesting for visitors
Decorated by numerous trees
Gardens everywhere
Everyone will remember Cambridge
