Honour for HB orchardist

The Hawke’s Bay Fruitgrowers’ Association last night honoured Mr Howard Paynter (above) with life membership.

The 78-year old St George’s Rd grower was president of the Hawke’s Bay association from 1946 to 1952 when the guidelines for today’s successful industry were established.

Jack Leighton reviews Mr Paynter’s career on page 9.
