Travel Lecture: Monday 24th February 2020 at 7:30pm, St Mary’s Church Hall
In and Around Christchurch New Zealand
Our 2020 programme kicks off with a visit to Christchurch New Zealand and gives us the opportunity to see the great progress made in rebuilding the city since the 2010-12 earthquakes, including seeing some great street art!  During the evening we will also be exploring the city’s links with Antarctica including an opportunity to go behind the scenes at the Antarctic Centre to meet the iconic Little Blue Penguins. Away from the centre of the city we shall be visiting the relatively unknown, but fascinating heritage home of Riccarton House.  The evening concludes with a visit to some vineyards on the Canterbury plains and a trip to magnificent location site in the Southern Alps of the “Misty Mountains and Edoras” in the Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

So invite your friends and come along to what promises to be great evening; just the thing to chase away those UK “Winter Blues”!  This is an evening you definitely don’t want to miss.  Everyone is very welcome so invite your friends and neighbours along.  There will be a raffle with the star prize of a bottle of New Zealand wine and during the interval the usual themed biscuits to have with your coffee or tea!

There is no admission charge for the evening as we invite donations, which we ask everyone who’s able to Gift Aid as this raises more for RAG (St. Mary’s Restoration Funds).  Although we have completed a number of restoration projects there are still many things to do, including the work needed on the organ.  So A BIG THANK YOU to all who have supported my travel lectures raising over £11,000 in the process.  Well Done!

The main focus of the next lecture 23rd March 2020 is the famous Tranzalpine Train from Christchurch to Greymouth before we explore the relatively unknown N.W. of South Island NZ.  The final New Zealand lecture before our summer break  is on 27th April and covers more of South Island New Zealand including Franz Joseph , Mt Cook and Akaroa so there’s lot’s to look forward to in the coming months.  So make sure you put these dates in your diaries.
