This brought back lots of lovely memories of my childhood on beautiful Waiheke..... saw lots of familar faces....My ancestors..The Brown and Hooks family were two of the pioneering families on Waiheke and I often wonder what they would think of the island now in 2013. Although much of it has changed I am always happy when I am back there and see some of the original houses still there. It is paradise.

What a historical account of the day with no pretence or made to look good. Whaea Shirley Maddock certainly was admired by the people as well as valued the work she did. Mont from Mot(was still at school at the time Waiheke DHS)
