Te Tiaki Taonga i te Kāinga Tonu

Ko ētehi ō tātou e tiaki tonu ana i ā tātou taonga ake i ō tātou kāinga ake, i ō tātou marae ake, i tētehi wāhi kē atu rānei i ngā whare tiaki taonga.

Kāore au mō te kī atu, “Tēnā, tukuna mai āū taonga ki a mātou!” Engari mō tēnā! Heoi anō, kua toko ake te whakaaro kia whākīna atu he kōrero e hāngai ana ki te mahi tiaki taonga hei āwhina atu i ā koutou. Nā, he marama he kōrero hou, he marama, he kōrero hou.

Korowai


Kia papatahi te whakatakoto o te korowai i ngā wā kāore i te whakamahia, tā te mea, ka ngoikore haere te kaupapa o te korowai inā pōkaia, whakairihia ai rānei.

Ka rawe kē atu te tiaki taonga ki roto ‘pouaka waikawa kore’, ā, e ahei ana ki te hoko mai i te whare nei.

Me he pātai āū he pīrangi rānei ki te kōrero ki tētehi e mātau ana ki ngā mahi tiaki korowai, tēnā ringi mai ki Te Puni Tiaki Taonga o Whanganui nei, kia kōrero mai ki tō mātou tohunga tiaki kākahu, arā ko Trish Nugent-Lyne, māku rānei koe e āwhina – 06 349 1110.

The Durie Hill Tower in Whanganui took six years to build and finally opened in 1925. It was dedicated to the memory of members of the armed services from the town of Whanganui and district who fell in what was then called the Great War, the massive world-wide conflict of 1914-1918. The tower has 176 steps from base to top floor level, and a height of about 35 metres from ground level to the top of the parapet. The photographer is unknown and the image was found in one of the Whanganui Historical Society photograph albums.
