Last Meeting: "Our Valley" - David Gledhill
David shared his outstanding history knowledge of NZ around 1800, the Musket wars, the invasion by Ngati Toa and Te Atiawa and how the Hutt Valley became of age.  Frankly, listeners had to think how brutal it was in those early days but then there was the friendship of the local Maori, iwi, Te Puni and Wi Tako.
He talked about The New Zealand Company, Edward Gibbon Wakefield and how the Hutt Valley was purchased, the Plan for settlement of Britannia, the reality, and Hutt City Council's "pathetic memorial".
Some of the historic sites David highlighted were: Military Road, Heretaunga Blockhouse, Percy Reserves' water/mill and of course, Taita's Christ Church, for which our valued member John Terris has been activity involved in establishing a visitors centre.
The 20th Century sites highlighted were: our War Memorial, Walter Nash's House, Ford Factory, the Naenae Centre and most recent Hutt City Civic Centre
The thrust of David's talk was that we, as society and government should do more to preserve our heritage and if you'd like to know more, his script can be read HERE.
