The Borough of Rangiora, lying twenty miles north-west of Christchurch, provided the setting for an experiment in community recreation from 1945 - 1953. I began the experiment not from any consideration of the overall problems of youth's adjustment to community life but from a felt desire to supply the means of meeting the needs of the young people of the town in the field of recreation. The record of this experiment and the contribution it made towards a richer life for many young men and women should provide a source of information of some value for those who are concerned with the happiness and welfare of youth and who realise the social implications of guided recreational activities.
