About Bradshaw Dive

It was little wonder that when he arrived in Tauranga in 1918 he was to take an active part in the local affairs of this area. Within nine months he was elected Mayor of Tauranga. Mr Dive lived on the corner of Park Street and Willow Street where the carpark for the Willow Park Hotel is now situated. He served five consecutive terms as Mayor, ten years in all. The railway was completed to Tauranga during his period as Mayor and his daughter Eileen was one who held the ribbon for the opening ceremony. In 1932 he left Tauranga to live once again in Tirimoana, Eltham. He passed away there in April, 1946. His work in Tauranga has been recognised by the naming of Dive Crescent after him.
