Another Whau Plaques Project

The Whau Local Board are funding another round of
plaques outside various points of heritage interest in the
district. More details to come.

The St Ninians memorial trees

John Adam has prepared his report on the trees (thank
you, John). I’ve yet to put together a deputation presen-
tation to the Local Board, to advise them of the trees’
significance, ask if they can be referred for future
scheduling for protection, and if an arborist could take a
look to address some issues John noted regarding the
pohutukawa and the totara.

I’ll put to the April meeting whether we should try to

organise a bit of a commemoration event, perhaps dur-
ing Heritage Festival, with regard to the trees and the
memory of the men they represent. It would involve April Lunchtime Movie at Ryders’
perhaps asking the local Union Parish minister and Cinema, Riversdale Road, Avondale
someone from Mt Albert Grammar (two of the men
were ex-students of MAGS) to take part. Any thoughts 9 April 2019, 10am
around that warmly welcomed.
