Nominations for Walkway of Fame

July 23, 2004

Nominations for Walkway of Fame

Who’s next?

Nominations are now open for your favourite Westies to be etched into stone as part of the 2004 Walkway of Fame.

People can make their nomination online at www.waitakere.govt.nz.

The walkway is in Catherine Mall, Henderson.

Henderson Community Board Chairperson Helen Jones says it’s always interesting to see the names that come forward for nomination.

“We all take a lot of pride in other ‘westies’ doing well, and there is a real sense of shared achievement at each unveiling,“ she says.

This year, an further two recipients will have their hand or foot imprint etched into granite slabs in the walkway along with suitable text acknowledging their achievements.

Criteria for selection are that the person must be nationally or internationally recognised and they must have been born, lived, or have worked in the Waitakere area.

Past recipients, who include rugby legend Michael Jones, author Maurice Shadbolt and world champion athlete Beatrice Faumuina, have come from a cross section of the arts, sport, politics, Maoridom and the community.

The Henderson Community Board will decide on the latest two recipients based on public nominations with an “unveiling” ceremony planned for late October or early November.
