What a journey it has been! The process of creating the calendar started in March during Covid-19 Lockdown - not that we were bored! The idea came about as we felt that fundraising events were not going to happen for quite some time.  Quotes and samples from national printers were sourced, then onto the mammoth task of selecting photographs by committee approval.  So many great photos to choose from. We spent hours pouring over wonderful pieces of our community’s history. What a business!  We decided that our very own local Smith Print was the best designer and printer to use for the job.  What an amazing product they’ve delivered for us. The Wellington Libraries Recollect collection, and the Alexander Turnbull Library had wonderful photographs available - some at a small fee. Their librarians were very helpful. As was Russell Jenkins of the Wellington Tramway Museum.  What a wonderful Tram photograph they sourced for our cover page..  As Hataitai has a unique heritage, we have ensured that photos were included of the old Patent Slip, the Tram Tunnel and the Flying Boat, as well as a variety of others. You may not have known that there was a commercial Flying Boat service operating in Evans Bay from 1938 to 1954, where passengers boarded a small passenger terminal near Hataitai’s current changing rooms and flew to Sydney. The proceeds are going towards the Hataitai Community House. As with many small and nonprofit businesses, our income has been greatly impacted by Covid 19. If we achieve high sales we hope to also support the redevelopment of the Hataitai Centre (previously known as the Bowling Club)  We are now thrilled to be able to launch this wonderful calendar. It will make an excellent Christmas present for your family, at only $20 each, or 3 for $50. The calendar is sponsored by many local businesses and for that we are very grateful. We could not have done it without you. To order, please email hataitaievents@gmail.com, or you can pop into one of our stockists - Hataitai Pharmacy, Coolsville, Waitoa Social Club and the Hataitai Community House, at 112 Waipapa Road.  We will also be selling the calendar at our up and coming community markets.  Keep an eye on our Latest News for details.
