Vivien Edwards will give a talk to the Society, Oliver Macey Quintal: How did a Pitcairner Become a Barrister in Tauranga? This replaces Dr Peter Vickers' postponed talk on Cameron, Grey and the Invasion of the Waikato, which he will deliver at a late date to be advised.
If you know of an event of significance to Tauranga/Bay of Plenty history that will take place in the next few months, please email me and I'll add it to this list.
