Porirua His­tor­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua His­tor­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion does not host monthly meet­ings, as it did pre­vi­ously, pres­i­dent Tony Cross says.

It prefers to hold sem­i­nars reg­u­larly on his­tor­i­cal topics, such as the up­com­ing talk on the 1913 strike in Welling­ton.

‘‘ We’re more fo­cused on do­ing some­thing like that, hav­ing key­note speak­ers, more so than what the as­so­ci­a­tion used to do,’’ he said.

‘‘We’d al­ways love to have more mem­bers [there is a nu­cleus of 30] and cre­ate more in­ter­est around the his­tory that we have in Porirua and around the re­gion.’’

The group worked with the His­toric Places Trust and other sim­i­lar or­gan­i­sa­tions on projects, Cross said.

The sem­i­nar on the 1913 strike will be in the He­len Smith Room at Pataka on July 6, at 3.30pm.
