Chinese Miners Memorial Reserve Update

Presentation May 2016

Fiona Pollard (KRT) and Biddy Manera (WRENIS) with the support of Mike Keenan (CDO) and Simon Tam (Dept of Corrections) met with Consulate-General Jin Zhijian, Madam Jin, Guangdong Association representatives, sponsors, donors and Department of Corrections last Saturday night in Christchurch. A presentation on the progress of the Kumara Chinese Miners Memorial Reserve was given. (see attached). Both presentations from Kumara and Ross were well received and the Chinese community are actively exploring ways to support both projects.

It was good to reflect on the progress since December 2014. We were grateful for the opportunity to strengthen the relationships and gather more support for both projects.
