Heritage Month 2024

Posted on 25 January 2024

February is Heritage Month for Waipā District Libraries. This year we are pleased to be able to offer a full range of events including talks and walks.

The popular heritage walks in Cambridge continue (hosted by Michael Jeans and Sue Milner), while in Te Awamutu the heritage walk makes a welcome return hosted by Alan Hall and Sandra Metcalfe.

Two talks are related to book releases: Southern Celts in Cambridge hosted by Celine Kearney and in Te Awamutu there will be a very special preview of the forthcoming release A Bricks & Mortar Legacy.

A third talk will be a presentation of photos by Cambridge Museum.

The final presentation on the Te Awamutu Cenotaph, which will focus on keeping the memory of fallen soldiers alive, will be held in March.
