Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN The achievements of 13 Upper Hutt residents buried in the grounds of St John's Church in Trentham will be highlighted in a tour this Sunday after- noon. City promotion manager Paul Lambert will narrate the Meet the Inhabitants tour at 2.30pm. His research will go towards a book to mark the church's 150th anniversary next year. Among the 13 to be highlighted on Sunday are Theresa Butler MBE who was the first New Zealand nurse to serve in World War I; Richard and Hannah Barton (he was the first Anglo settler in Upper Hutt and she was the daughter of the first resident clergyman in New Zealand John Butler); Ruby Smith (Upper Hutt's first midwife who founded Braeburn Hos- pital and planted all the silver birch trees in Victoria St) and Corporal John Geange, who was invited to tea with the King and Queen at Bucking- ham Palace in 1917 while he was recovering from wounds sustained at Gallipoli. The tour will start at 2.30pm and takes about an hour. Meet in the foyer of the church, corner Fergusson Dr and Moonshine Rd. There is no charge but numbers are limited. Book at the Upper Hutt i-SITE 527 2141. There will be another tour early next year. Any family who has not made contact to tell the story of relatives in the cemetery should email parishioner John Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org. Heroes sought Nominations are sought for Local Heroes as part of the Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year Awards 2012. They recognise everyday people doing extraordinary things to make their local communities a better place. Local Heroes may be involved in business, leadership, voluntary work, community and environmental groups, education, sporting clubs, working with the disadvantaged, or have displayed courage in overcoming a personal difficulty. The 2011 winner was Billy Graham who established the Naenae Boxing Academy which is dramatically transforming the lives of young men. New Zealander of the Year awards manager Emma Mcdonald is encour- aging all New Zealanders to nominate someone from their community for this prestigious award. There are so many unsung heroes all around New Zealand whose char- ity, selflessness and contributions are making a profound effect on individuals, families and organis- ations within their communities,'' she says. Nomination forms are available online at nzawards.org.nz or Kiwibank, Countdown and Mitre 10 stores.
