This textbook definition is a good starting point to reflect on the value of heritage activities in Upper Hutt in attracting visitors to visit and stay here. I cannot mention all our heri- tage activities here but Silver Stream Railway Museum, Wel- lington Vintage Machinery Club, Chapman Taylor homes, New Zealand s oldest sporting trophy the Ballinger Belt, The Blockhouse, Pumpkin Cottage and the impressionists painters are just a selection of the heri- tage industry activities that we can all work with to strengthen their contribution to economic development in Upper Hutt. I am involved with the St John s graveyard tour this Sunday, August 28, at 2.30pm, when intriguing stories of those buried there are revealed. Did you know Pumpkin Cot- tage builder Thomas Cotter is buried there? Book a space for the free tour at the Upper Hutt i-Site Visitor Centre on 527 2141. Heritage Month has been moved to September this year to take advantage of Rugby World Cup visitors, especially since the theme is sport and recreation. Another highlight for Upper Hutt is the special Belt up, gal- lop on, tea-off bus tour on Monday, September 5, to see the Ballinger Belt, visit Tren- tham Racecourse and afternoon tea at Royal Wellington Golf Club. Cost $10, book by phoning 527 2141. Get more information on our heritage attractions at i-Site. 21st time Volunteers will collect for Daffodil Day this Friday in Upper Hutt. The annual Daffodil Day shop is in the former Dowson Shoes building in Main St. New this year is a Cancer Society teddy bear dressed as a party girl to celebrate the 21st year the society has been fundraising to increase awareness of cancer. The daffodil represents a rebirth and is the symbol for the Cancer Society s work. Last year on Daffodil Day the Upper Hutt community gave $23,000 to support this work. The money raised on Daffodil Day is used in various ways by the Cancer Society. To provide information resources. To fund volunteer drivers who take people to their cancer treatments. To support the Cancer helpline. To make schools Sun Smart and New Zea- land Smokefree. Organisers hope sales at the shop this week and donations on Friday will beat last year s $23,000.
