Mr. Frank Gardiner
Mr. Frank Gardiner was born at Kaiapoi in 1867, and was educated at Brookside, and afterwards at a private school. Mr. Gardiner recently established a small stud flock of English Leicesters, by the purchase of a number of ewes from Mr. W. B. Andrews, of Greenpark, and rams from the well-known flock of Mr. Donald Grant. He also purchased some of the renowned Starborough Merino sheep, intending to breed up a halfbred flock. He is a member of the local road board, and, with others, energetically petitioned for a telephone round the Bays. In 1895, Mr. Gardiner was married to Miss Dean, and has one son and one daughter.
