Opening date for Camp Paekākāriki interpretation site POSTPONED until further notice.

The Kapiti U.S. Marines Trust advises that due to a lengthy spell of bad weather and the impact of Covid on some contractors, they have decided to delay the opening of the Camp Paekākāriki Interpretation Site until further notice.

“While this is disappointing, we believe we need to make this decision now and focus on a firm date following the project’s completion. Our grateful thanks for the persistent efforts of our construction team and the understanding and support of all stakeholders.”

The planned screening of a short film called Meet New Zealand by Steve La Hood featuring films of U.S. Marines will go ahead on Tuesday 21 June St Peter’s Village Hall Paekākāriki at 2 pm and again at 5.30 pm.
