Hello to everyone across New Zealand. 
We hope you have managed to stay warm 
as wet and wild winter weather sweeps up 
from the south. Maintaining the weather 
theme, our From The Archives section of 
the newsletter reveals photographs taken 
during the 1950 Tutaneui Stream Flood. We 
also look in on some of our many projects, 
as well as the introduction of a new section, 
This Is Not Health And Safety. On that note, 
sit back, stoke the fire and read on!
VISITS AND PROJECTS
This month we spent plenty of time with our 
friends throughout the region. Whanganui 
District Council is 
currently involved in 
the digitisation of 
cemetery record books,

built camera rig and

software.
