Thistle Hall Closure - Earthquake strengthening update

Thistle Hall Closure
Earthquake strengthening update

The board and myself are currently finalising our strategic plan and reviewing our hire agreements and fees. We expect to ask for applications for gallery users and regular hall and meeting room users around early July of this year.

An archeological assessment was made recently when some items were found in the foundations of the Thistle Hall Office:
Archaeological material found included the remains of at least one (see Pile 1) and probably three wooden piles and domestic animal bone (adult and juvenile sheep, some showing signs of sawing). Soils showed inclusions of charcoal, coal, broken (hand made) brick and marine shell.
It seems very likely that the wooden piles are remnants of the 1870s building previously located on the site and the sheep bones may relate to the time that the area was leased for grazing.

(April 2014, Archeological Assessment Report - Victoria Grouden, M.A)

We don't expect this to cause a major delay with our re-opening deadline.

Treason, Manager/Co-ordinator, will be available to answer questions for the duration of the work:

Gaza.Scoop: UNRWA School, Ambulances Attacked - Gaza MOH

The Ministry of Health Gaza expresses its horror and outrage at the latest Israeli massacre moments ago at an UNRWA school sheltering displaced persons in Beit Hanoun. Ten people have been killed and there is a large number of wounded. More>>

Gordon Campbell:
On Gaza And Burning The Israeli Flag

One of the selling points in New Zealand’s campaign for a temporary seat on the Security Council is that we have a pluckily independent voice to offer on international conflicts.

This image is not entirely self-delusional. When we did occupy a temporary UN Security Council seat in the 1990s, New Zealand was forthright about the need for the international community to actively respond to the Rwanda genocide. On April 14, 1994, New Zealand, Nigeria and the Czech Republic were the only nations to call for a forceful UN intervention to halt the killings. It was a proud moment in the diplomatic record of the Bolger government.

What then, is the current National government doing with respect to the slaughter in Gaza? More>>
