Verse of The Day
“A ka mea a Meri, Ka whakanui toku wairua i te Ariki, E hari ana toku wairua ki te Atua, ki toku Kaiwhakaora; He nui hoki nga mahi a te Mea Kaha ki ahau; he tapu hoki tona ingoa.” (Luke 1:46-47, 49)

HISTORY ON DISPLAY: Cherry Daly with a 1916 geological map of the Whangarei area showing some of the early family names of the Glenbervie area including Hutchinson, Douglas, Plaisted, Clotworthy and Finlayson.

Pieces of history on the Glenbervie, Kiripaka and Whareora areas are wanted for a new exhibition.

The Glenbervie Hall Society is running the exhibition on September 19 to preserve and record the area’s history.

The exhibition is being co-ordinated by resident Cherry Daly whose great-great-grandparents the Clotworthys settled in the area in the late 1800s.

"Unless we make an effort to restore or record these things now, they will be lost forever," she says.

The exhibition will include her great-great-grandmother’s diary from 1896.

The society is looking for any pictures, postcards, family photos, land deeds, books, records or newspaper clippings which could add to the exhibition.
