There has been much interest over the past years of what has been going on at the site but at last the plans have come to fruition and it is hoped that people will join us for the occasion and share a Devonshire tea at the Waihao Valley Presbyterian Church.
Our Action Committee have worked hard to achieve this vision for this small Cemetery while preserving recognition that once a loved Church stood providing a spiritual home for those who came to worship.
On Saturday the etching of the Church generously created by local artist Billy Scott will be dedicated and a plaque unveiled in memory of the late Re. Canon Andrew Bayntun Starky.
At the afternoon tea a slide show of the whole process will play. This records the work of Funeral Directors Shelly and Jim Wilson of Aoraki Funerals, Leathwick Contracting, Simon Waldron, Craig Booth, Karton Construction Sysems, Mr Pankhurst, Paul Harrison and the generous and selfless gifts and work of members of the Action Committee, in particular Keith Adams and his helpers.
We hope you will join us for a trip down memory lane as we step forward caring for those who are no longer with us.
