Northern A & P Association Building. SOCIETIES

Many Clubs and Societies have flourished over the years, for example the Northern A. and P. Association has continued since 1866. The Masonic Lodge was formed in 1878, and Friendly Societies have also existed for many years. The St John Ambulance, Red Cross and Plunket Society have all given most useful service over the years, while the Rangiora Fire Brigade has served since 1874.

Also other organisations, such as the Musical Society, Dramatic Society and the Brass Band and Pipe Band, have all added to the life of the Community.
