Local History Group:

Local Hiostory Group Objects
Local Hiostory Group

In February, the Local History group met at the home of Don Alford and Glenda Came and discussed possible topics for this year’s programme. Some members also brought along historic artefacts, which included an old brick from the Brick Bay kiln, a knocker used in the 1913 protests in Wellington to curb protesters, a C19 coffee grinder of cunning design, and a chair from the wreck of the USSC ship Wairarapa off Great Barrier Island in 1892.


New Members are always welcome.
At U3A Warkworth you will meet familiar faces plus a new group of friendly people with similar interests. If you have just moved to the area, or recently retired and are looking for new horizons, this is a pleasant and stimulating way to extend your circle of friends
