Following the great success of the inaugural Wellington Heritage Week last October, the Wellington Heritage Week Trust are organising a second event for 22 – 28 October 2018. This year HPW is not a co-sponsor of the Week, but we encourage anyone interested to attend events. The programme of events is available on the Trust’swebsite. Some require bookings.
There are also a few other events during the week that we have listed on our website.
Our latest newsletter is available on our website. It has information about our 9 August AGM and speaker Barbara Mulligan on the 'Karori Cemetery and the 1918 Flu Epidemic' as well as some of our recent and other upcoming events. We are also on Facebook.
Two of our committee members wrote an opinion piece for the Dominion Post on Special Housing Areas and their potential threat to heritage buildings, using the example of Wellington's former Erskine College.
