Civic Trust at Grey Lynn Festival

At the Grey Lynn Festival on Saturday 28 November, Civic Trust Auckland’s stall presented information on heritage at risk in Auckland, especially the King’s School Hanna Block, and St David’s Church in Khyber Pass.

We also explained the tortuous Unitary Plan process in basic terms and what the risks are for heritage with the proposed new planning rules.

The highlight, however, was our “What the Heck is This?” competition, where we asked for the original use of a century old kauri block. Only one guess was close – it was a wooden cobblestone road block from K Rd. But everyone did get a sweet treat for guessing.
