4.   Public Forum

Part B

4.1  Memorial to those who fought the Port Hills Fires

 

Alma Sturgess, resident of Governors’ Bay, addressed the Board regarding a proposal for a memorial to be placed commemorating the Port Hills Fires in February 2017.

Ms Sturgess proposed that given the first anniversary of the fires is just passed it is appropriate for a sign of acknowledgement to be placed in a visible place on the Port Hills noting the February 2017 and acknowledging those who suffered the fires, those who lost their homes, and those who fought fires particularly  the pilot who lost his life doing so.

The Chairperson, on behalf of the Board, thanked Ms Sturgess for her presentation. 

 

4.2  Ngaio Marsh House

 

Ian Lochead (Chairperson) and Margaret Sweet (Trustee) of the Ngaio Marsh House and Heritage Trust addressed the Board on the Ngaio Marsh house and gardens.

The house built in 1907 was the family home of Dame Ngaio and she lived there from childhood until her death in 1982.  Since then the property has been held by the trust, and cared for by a small group of trustees, and a hard working group of friends. 

The house contains furniture many personal items owned by Dame Ngaio, and is visited by many people from all over the world.

As the house is over 100 years old, it is now needing some upkeep, such as the roof replacement and  insulation. Maintenance of the grounds is also required with a line of trees, planted by Dame Ngaio’s father around the building time, recently needing to be removed.  Plans are underway to replace these with suitable species.  The Trust’s sources of income include the rental of a flat on the property and proceeds from annual tour of heritage houses during Heritage Week.

 The Chairperson, on behalf of the Board, thanked Mr Lochhead and Ms Sweet for their presentation.
