I am very relieved to read this advertisement is for August 2018. Since then the two organisers’ of these lectures have been asked repeatedly to cease using the name ‘Kapiti Historical Society” They have alienated the original KHS Inc members attempting to relaunch the much respected 28 year old Kapiti organisation. They have refused to adhere to the aims and objectives of the original KHS Inc. Have ignored all requests to cease using the name, and continue to hold public lectures using the name to legitimize their activities and their particular views and version of New Zealand history. It was a simple ask – just cease using this name illegitimately – and cease causing reputational harm to our much loved organisation. This notice is published at the request of concerned lecture attendees.
Being aware of New Zealand’s history, I would like to be put in touch with Roger Childs please?
Kia Ora, Roger Childs phone number is 04 902 1754. Regards, alan Tristram, Editor
