Navy Celebrates With Napier During Art Deco Fest

Navy Celebrates Ties With Napier During Art Deco Festival

The Navy is participating in Napier's Art Deco Weekend, 17-21 February 2005 with Ships and the Navy Band.

HMNZ Ships RESOLUTION and MANAWANUI and Australian survey vessel HMAS MELVILLE will be berthed at the Port of Napier. The Navy Band will perform several concerts throughout the weekend at a range of venues, and sailors from all three ships are parading through the streets at 1230, Saturday 19 February (see attachment).

The Chief of Navy, Rear Admiral David LEDSON, ONZM will also be present at the weekend's events. He says "The Navy's relationship with Napier was borne from the same event that gave Napier its Art Deco Architecture - the Napier Earthquake of 1931, where Navy ships came to the aid of a stricken city... It is therefore very appropriate that Naval Ships are involved in a festival that celebrates the uniqueness of Napier created by this event and it also reinforces that the Navy will be there for any New Zealand city in a similar time of crisis."

Unfortunately Ships will not be open to the public due to port restrictions.
