The winners of the 2011 Waipa Heritage Awards will be unveiled at a special function at Cambridge’s St Andrews Hall next Thursday night, August 25, from 5.30pm.
Organiser Jan White said the guest speaker will be the entertaining and informative Dr Anne McEwen speaking on ‘Just say “No!”: staying the distance with heritage research and protection’.
“She is keen to offer a rallying cry for folk who are working hard to save heritage buildings and places, both through their efforts to research and to manage such places to ensure their future survival,” said Mrs White.
“As the new Waipa District Plan is due to be publicly notified in September, she thinks that it is timely to remind people that sound research and appropriate protection measures are vital if we are to sustainably manage our historic heritage resources,” she said.
Anyone wanting to attend the awards should RSVP by phoning 07 872 0085 by 5pm this Friday, August 19.
