Explore Titirangi’s New Heritage Tours

The Titirangi Residents and Ratepayers’ Association is proud to announce the release of a new publication to celebrate the Auckland Heritage Festival which begins on 30 September.

The Association, working with the West Auckland Historical Society, has produced a free booklet detailing walking and driving tours of the area exploring Titirangi’s heritage.

The Waitakere Ranges Local Board provided funding to print the brochure which can now be found in local cafes, businesses and public buildings.

TRRA Chair Dr Mels Barton is delighted that the project has come to fruition.

“We’re excited that this delightful resource is now available for locals and visitors to enjoy” she said.

The Association would like to thank local historians Bruce and Trixie Harvey and Marc Bonny who wrote the text and Sonia Frimmel of What’s the Story who produced the design, plus the Waitakere Ranges Local Board for the funding. It was printed locally by Words Incorporated.

To mark the launch of the new brochure the Association and the West Auckland Historical Society will host a Guided Walk of Titirangi’s Heritage Sites on Saturday 7 October from 2-4pm, to be led by Bruce and Trixie Harvey and Marc Bonny. The walk will start at Lopdell House and all are welcome.

True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
