(Not his term: he says he had to look up what Raconteur means. 🙂 )

This is one of the events in the Kapiti Summer School series.  Those who follow social media will know Karl’s strong ancestral ties to and his interest in all things Kapiti. We’ve posted several of his photos on here, particularly of Kapiti Island and sunsets.

The blurb:

Kia Ora. Karl Webber is of the three local Iwi and has lived on the Kapiti coast most of his life. A little over 50 now, Karl has raised two children of his own and hundreds of youngsters and the not so young, who have been passing through, have found a safe-haven in his home.

Karl brings skills and experience from his professional background to Kapiti, where he has spent the past 20 plus years working in the community on a professional and voluntary basis.

Involvements include youth, drug and alcohol, community development, business and social projects and tourism.

He is a well-known educator, ready to inspire and is Kapiti’s unofficial marriage broker for networking. He supports many groups and people under the radar. He is a free range eco warrior and a passionate and intrepid conservationist. He has an ongoing love affair with Kapiti and the surrounding islands.

Karl has been a story teller forever, so join us for a humorous and eye-opening evening as Karl weaves his stories of Kapiti at the Kapiti Boating Club.
