Heart-felt thanks to all involved

To Andrew Coleman, from every person in Westland, Grey and Buller, a huge thank you.

To get a project like Seddon House up to the start line takes a tremendous amount of hard work, passion and support from the right quarters. And you need people who walk the talk.

So on that note, Coaster’s Weekly acknowledges the support of Andrew Coleman, CEO of Heritage New Zealand – Pouhere Taonga, for his support of the Seddon House project. Seddon House will form part of the Tohu Whenua programme where local history is highlighted by local landmarks and the stories associated with them.

We also acknowledge the huge support and commitment of Mark Patterson, Tanka Davidson our local MPs Damien O’Connor and Maureen Pugh and our local Council teams.
