Margaret Foden presents " What we did in the Sixties" a nostalgic look at club activities when we were young.
Helen Kettles will share her biking adventure with us. 30 days biking from Cape Reinga to Bluff. The unexpected twists and turns of being off the beaten track, small town hotels and the characters she met.
William Howlett lived most of his life at Makaretu, Eketahuna and Pahiatua. He was an articulate but eccentric journalist who wrote columns and letters in most of the small local newspapers and his writing was lucid, funny, sensitive, poetic; he was a naturalist who corresponded with Colenso, Hooker and Hector; and an alpinist who formed the first New Zealand mountaineering club. He should be recognised as New Zealand’s Henry David Thoreau.
Ian St George is a doctor, naturalist and amateur historian. He has written extensively on New Zealand native orchids and on William Colenso and is now writing biographies of a number of obscure but influential 19th century men who lived in Hawke's Bay and the Wairarapa.
In May & June last year, Janie & Graeme Cook were back in Europe for more cycle touring. Their two main trips were the Slovenian Alps and unfinished business in Norway.
