This week we start our new se­ries with the Mor­rinsville Mu­seum, pro­fil­ing some of the more unique and un­known taonga the fa­cil­ity holds. There are many items the mu­seum would like help with, in terms of revealing more in­for­ma­tion on their historic value. The mu­seum is keen to know more about where th­ese items came from and what they were used for. The re­cent Mor­rinsville Cham­ber of Com­merce, Busi­ness Af­ter 5 event was held at the mu­seum and vis­i­tors there were given a chance to have a look around some of the dis­plays and items, show­ing the town’s history and pride. It was great to be given the chance to read about the town’s history and see the num­ber of items do­nated by fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als to the mu­seum over the years. Re­porter Ka­t­rina Tanirau starts the new se­ries look­ing at a cop­per, kerosene pow­ered sol­der­ing gun and an­other mys­te­ri­ous ob­ject mu­seum staff are keen to find more in­for­ma­tion on. Maybe you can help solve the mys­tery? Turn over to page 4 and have a read.
