Te Hikoi Southern Journey
A “must see” exhibition created by local Dave Asher and his volunteers. This story shows the effects of war, and how the wars effected small communities where the local lads went to war, a lot to never return, and how lives changed forever for their mothers, wives and children. Enter the story through a World War 1 trench, see the haunted look in the soldier’s eyes. See the raw emotion. Watch footage, see photos of those who never came home, look at the mother, reading her son’s story, with the tears rolling down her cheeks; see the real poppy from Flander’s Field sent from a lad home to his mum……………….Bring a hankie or two – every man woman and child included!
This project is implemented in cooperation with South Coast Productions
