Adieu Edward

Last week, the WCMG was sad to hear the passing of Edward Hammond. Edward ran several workshops with Te Mahia School around Matauranga Maori themes. His expertise in Rongoa and carving was appreciated by all the students. Edward really enjoyed interacting with the young ones and his passing leaves us with a huge loss.
Edward was also part of our water monitoring team and assisted the group in developing a cultural survey.
On Wednesday the 5th of April, Te Mahia students will plant a Totara above the Whangawehi bridge in remembrance of Matua Edward.
Adieu Edward
