History Group

The History Group has had another busy year. We have continued our history articles for the Omelette each month. This year we have included some pictures of early settler houses as well as further bach stories and an article on the history of the Settlers’ hall dating back to 1928.

A story board for the Wall family Lynley Park Jersey dairy stud farm which existed for over 8o years has been made and is with the WBOPDC ready to be erected in the Lynley park area.

For ANZAC day and especially to remember Gallipoli this year we mounted a display of historic pictures in the library as well as a display at the school.

The major achievement has been the up dating of the Jenny Woods’ book on Omokoroa and in particular the history of the Gellibrand/Crapp family dating back to 1877. Colin Pettigrew has done a marvellous job with this book and the first printing of 200 copies has sold already. We are now well on the way selling the second print of 125 copies.

A big thank you goes to all those who supported us and in particular the Resource centre and the WBOPDC matching fund as well as many members of the Crapp family who made this venture financially viable.
