Manda and Lesley for Linton intro page

Manda Brokenshaw and Lesley Clutterbuck 

The Linton military community is strong and close knit.  With a large camp based population and other Service families living in nearby Palmerston North and elsewhere in the Manawatu,  it is a vibrant community.      

Linton has the reputation of being the operational hub of the New Zealand Army.   A  big focus for the community, therefore, is supporting its military members and supporting each other when Service members are away on duty.  

The Linton Community Centre is designed to be a focal point for people, allowing  the community the kind of interacive support essential in a predominantly military community.
