Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting of the Waiheke Island Historical Society, postponed from the original date of 5 April 2020, was held on Sunday, 5 July 2020, 2PM at the Museum. Speaker: Colleen Brown on the Bulford Kiwi.
The Museum held its annual Live Heritage Day on the Sunday of Labour Weekend (27 October), from 11AM to 3PM. Weather was perfect and a good crowd turned out — in spite of the theft of our water pump the previous night!
Goodwin Cottage refreshed
When you see an old building with peeling paint you think no one cares, but Foundation North do, and so with heartfelt thanks to them we now have a heritage cottage looking very smart and cared for, beautifully painted by Graeme O’Brien whose family has a long history with our island. Some of our volunteers have been working hard to refresh the interior, with new furniture and items on display. Come have a look!
