Over this past weekend, Eva and I attended this symposium organised by Ekta.nz — which is predominately Indian and nearly all attendees had origins in that part of the world; the MC wore an impressive Sikh turban and white coat. The Walter Nash Centre, opened in 2015, is a reasonably-sized community facility in Taita, Lower Hutt, and includes the Taita branch library of Hutt City.

We asked Ekta (whose name means ‘unity’ or ‘to unite’) if they had any plans for having this in Kapiti, but they don’t at this stage.

Some of the topics covered have been mentioned on Waikanae Watch previously, but others haven’t been and it’s appropriate to do so with the high percentage of retirees in Kapiti, and in Waikanae particularly.

There’ll be short posts over the next week on them.
