Upcoming members’ events

Sunday 12 February (postponed from 29 January) 2023, 2pm: CBD historic walk (part 2): Committee member Vivienne Morrell will lead a walk in Wellington’s CBD to look at historic buildings. On 16 October we did part 1: Old St Paul’s to the BNZ centre. This walk will start near the Old Government Buildings and end in Willis Street, following a different route and looking at different buildings from part 1.

For a number of years (2015 to 2019) Vivienne taught an evening class on Wellington’s architectural heritage at Wellington High School. At the end of each course, she would lead the group on a walk, similar to these two.

This may be of particular interest to some of our newer members who perhaps aren’t sure which city buildings are heritage listed. It will be advertised to members in the November newsletter and RSVPs will be taken then.

If you are not a member but are interested in doing the walk, please enquire as there may be space. But preference will be given to members.

It will take between 1.5 and 2 hours. Limit of 16 people.

Please RSVP to Vivienne at wgtn@historicplacesaotearoa.org.nz
