The Friends of the Mangapurua Society have agreed to signing a Memorandum Of Understanding with the Uenuku Charitable Trust. This will be mutually beneficial to both organizations and we look forward to working alongside them.
We have the opportunity to make a documentary film about the valley, so watch this space and we will keep you updated.
Tom Mowat has been working hard on recording his family history and providing some photos for an information board to be positioned at the Mowat site. Thank you Tom, this is much appreciated. Graeme West is also working on the Aislabie Family information board. If anyone has information on families living in the valley that they would like to pass on, we would be very grateful.
We had draft plans of an accommodation facility presented to the meeting which were very favourably accepted. The next stage is to get concept drawings done and these are now underway.
Below is the new memorial at the Mangapurua Trig to all of the settlers of the Valley.
