Seat pays trib­ute to com­mu­nity stal­warts

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

A new seat has been added at the favourite Ti­tahi Bay look­out of John and Bar­bara Wat­son.

John Wat­son died last year. He was con­sid­ered the god­fa­ther of Porirua pol­i­tics and gave years of ded­i­cated, vol­un­tary ser­vice to the city. He re­ceived a civic award from Porirua City Coun­cil in 2009.

Graeme Eb­bett, chair­man of Ti­tahi Bay Res­i­dents As­so­ci­a­tion, of which John Wat­son was a mem­ber, said the seat and plaque were a fit­ting trib­ute to the Wat­sons. He ac­knowl­edged the work the coun­cil had done with the Wat­son fam­ily to in­stall it.
