This publication was made on 06 July 2018 Collectors call - NPDC’s Puke Ariki needs you! 06 July 2018 NPDC’s Puke Ariki is seeking out collectors for a new exhibition and wants to hear from people with a passion for the peculiar.  Whether it is collecting teddy bears (arctophiles), cheese labels (tyrosemiophiles) or medals and military badges (falerists), Puke Ariki wants to share collectors’ stories and learn about why they stockpile their beloved treasures.  “We are looking for collections of all shapes and sizes, from collectors of all ages, no matter how weird or wonderful, to be part of next year’s exhibition,” says Puke Ariki Manager Kelvin Day. The exhibition celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Taranaki Museum with an exhibition of Taranaki collections, starting with the collection by W.H. Skinner that launched the museum in 1919. The W.H. Skinner collection laid the foundation for what is now the regionally and nationally significant Puke Ariki Heritage Collections. Skinner’s work as a surveyor brought him into contact with many Māori in Taranaki and he developed a life-long interest in Māori culture and history.  Concerned that Taranaki lacked a proper museum and that items were being lost to the province, he and his son, Henry Devenish Skinner, offered the collection to the New Plymouth Borough Council in 1913 on the proviso that a suitable, fire-proof building was built. The newly built museum extension to the Carnegie Library opened in August 1919 with the Skinner Collection on display. Meanwhile, local mountain man Derek Andrews has an incredible collection of more than 30,000 items he has found on Mt Taranaki during his 800 ascents of the mountain. His collection includes 16,292 pieces of glass as well as items from a crashed aircraft, crampons, coins and golf balls.  “I’m still finding things each time I go up the mountain which are brought to the surface,” he says.  And music mad David Clark’s entire home is filled with 45s, CDs, DVDs and more than 4,000 LPs. “My favourite band is Madness and I guess my collection is a bit mad as well!” Collectors wanting to take part can get in touch with the museum to include part of their treasured items in the new display.

This publication was made on 02 July 2018 Local Curator Dazzles Govett-Brewster 03 July 2018 Contemporary art meets Māori astronomy, as local curator dazzles GBAG She’s not even 30 but already Taranaki curator Kararaina Te Ira has brought new meaning to contemporary New Zealand art with her exhibition at NPDC’s Govett-Brewster Art Gallery. Kararaina is the guest curator behind Tātai Arorangi / Looking Through the Telescope and leapt at the opportunity to delve into the Govett-Brewster Collection and choose artworks to exhibit. The result is an impressive showcase of contemporary New Zealand art. “As a country, New Zealand is very rich in its ability to produce its own contemporary art. I think because we’re so geographically isolated our artists are just that much more innovative. It’s fantastic as a curator, to be given the opportunity to select works to display at the Govett-Brewster.” New Plymouth-based, Kararaina herself is no stranger to remoteness. Growing up with her grandparents in Waitahanui, a rural community just outside of Taupo, she was immersed in Te Reo Māori and the Māori way of life from a very young age. “My parents were really committed to making sure I had that traditional Māori upbringing. Where other kids got to do ‘kid things’, my whanau would take me to hui, to seminars and to museums.” This passion is very much present at the Tātai Arorangi exhibition which Kararaina describes as bringing together the themes of astronomy and women, darkness and light. “With Tātai Arorangi I just really wanted to be able to use the power of women to describe astronomy in a traditional Māori sense and it’s fantastic that it’s up at our local art gallery,” she says. Kararaina’s day job is Poutiaki Taonga or curator of Taonga Māori at NPDC’s Puke Ariki Museum, where she is in charge of caring for a range of cultural artefacts. Tātai Arorangi / Looking Through the Telescope is open to the public at the Govett-Brewster in New Plymouth from 12 May to 29 July 2018. Owned and operated by NPDC, the art gallery is a Taranaki icon since it opened in 1970 and contributed $7.4 million to the local economy in 2016 (Source: Berl).

This publication was made on 03 July 2018 Elvis always on the mind for elderly NPDC tenant Gladys 29 June 2018 Gladys Hopkinson doesn’t have a pair of blue suede shoes, but at home in her NPDC Housing for the Elderly flat she does put her feet up in her favourite Elvis slippers. She’s been sharing her home with The King for more than 10 years, with Elvis memorabilia covering walls and shelves, and filling her wardrobe too. Gladys, 81, has lived in an NPDC unit for 22 years and says it’s helped her stay independent and keep serving the community as a volunteer driver for other elderly folk. “I’ve always loved music and there’s something about Elvis that’s just so fascinating. After I became interested in him, friends and family started giving me things related to Elvis,” Gladys says. NPDC has 140 units to let to elderly residents in New Plymouth, Bell Block, Waitara and Inglewood. The service is entirely self-funded from rents, with no money from rates, and tenants have to prove their financial need and be 65 or over to qualify. The number of elderly in the New Plymouth District is rising and demand for the units is high, with a waiting time of up to three years. “All our units are well cared for and we encourage the tenants to take pride in their homes,” NPDC Chief Financial Officer Alan Bird says. “NPDC’s Housing for the Elderly gives tenants security that enables them to live independently and remain active in the community,” Mr Bird says. “It also gives them a home close to family in communities across the district.”  Volunteer power keeps New Plymouth District humming 22 June 2018 NPDC’s historic Te Henui Cemetery is making its debut in the Powerco Taranaki Garden Festival this year – thanks to the hard work of dedicated volunteers who keep the grounds looking spectacular year-round. Working with NPDC horticulture staff, they spread mulch, pull weeds, prune trees and gather up the garden waste for collection, ensuring the cemetery remains a place of tranquil calm for visitors. The cemetery has earned consistent rave reviews and a certificate of excellence on the TripAdvisor website, and is set to be a major draw in the Garden Festival which runs from 26 October to 4 November this year. About 25 regular volunteers work with NPDC’s Parks department in the cemetery, Pukekura Park, Brooklands Zoo and other places in the district. Other groups and individuals help out with occasional beach plantings and clean-ups and the annual Keep New Zealand Beautiful campaign in September. NPDC is acknowledging their commitment to their community during Volunteer Week this week. “We want to thank them because their work helps make the district a great place to live and visit,” says NPDC Chief Operating Officer Kelvin Wright. About 60 volunteers work with NPDC’s Puke Ariki in the libraries and museum, as well as collections and the research centre, putting in an average of 140 hours a month in total. A big part of their work involves getting out in the community, taking books to the housebound and hosting historical guided walks. One highlight is the Museum in a Suitcase, a weekly visit to rest homes and senior groups with carefully selected artefacts in a suitcase. The Museum in a Suitcase is especially rewarding because it encourages conversations and brings out stories and memories of our district’s past, says Mr Wright. “All of these people volunteer because they want to contribute to the community and they keep doing it because they enjoy it,” says Mr Wright. If you want to join any of our volunteer teams, you can visit an NPDC service centre, email enquiries@npdc.govt.nz, call 06-759 6060 or visit http://www.newplymouthnz.com/Council/About-The-Council/Contact-Us. Puke Ariki – how they help: • The Museum in a Suitcase can be booked for Mondays 11am for a 45-minute session (other sessions may be available by arrangement) from next month.  • The Housebound Readers Service is for people who have difficulty accessing the library or mobile library.  • Guided Historical Walks reveal the stories of New Plymouth through two routes: the Taranaki Cathedral/Marsland Hill walk and the Devonport/Central City walk. The cost is $25 per person (under 16s free) and they can be made available daily at 1pm with 24 hours’ notice. • To find out more about becoming a Puke Ariki volunteer, go to http://pukeariki.com/Puke-Ariki/About-Us/Volunteers. Airport terminal contract keeps jobs in Taranaki 18 June 2018 Local construction firm Clelands Construction is to build New Plymouth Airport’s new multi-million dollar terminal, providing a major boost for the Taranaki economy. The board of the airport company, Papa Rererangi i Puketapu (PRIP), has confirmed the award of the contract after a competitive tender, with local suppliers and sub-contractors being used wherever practical. Clelands was chosen from three tenders, says New Plymouth Airport Chief Executive Officer Wayne Wootton. “In the end, after a rigorous tender evaluation process, the contract was awarded for professionalism and the best value for money. We’re on a journey to transform from a 1960s airport to a modern regional gateway, pivotal to our regional tourism strategy. Clelands will be working closely with the airport company and Puketapu hapu to build a distinctive terminal that celebrates Taranaki’s heritage,” says Mr Wootton. Clelands Managing Director Michael Braggins says the company is grateful for the opportunity to deliver the project and has an experienced construction team ready to go.  “The timing of this announcement should provide a level of optimism for local subcontractors and suppliers following recent negative press related to potential restrictions being imposed on the oil and gas and dairy industries,” says Mr Braggins. “The new terminal building is a key part of the tourism infrastructure contributing to delivering on our regional economic development strategy's commitment to the visitor sector. Tourism isn't today's buzz word, it's real, and we are currently at the front end of several tourism and hospitality projects that will be delivered with local resources over the next few years." The current terminal was built in the 1960s to cater for 50,000 passengers a year but now has 440,000 travellers passing through annually. The terminal redevelopment project will be funded entirely from airport revenue at a cost of approximately $21.7 million to $28.7 million.
