Katherine Mansfield House and Garden anniversaries

Dame Patsy and Sir David attended a celebration at the Katherine Mansfield House and Garden marking 30 years since the opening of the House as a museum and the 130th anniversary of Katherine Mansfield's birth.

Dame Patsy had the honour of announcing that Katherine Mansfield's work has been published in Te Reo for the first time.  Dr Karena Kelly, who translated Te Whare Tāre (A Doll's House), later read from the work.

 The second announcement was that the House and Garden would be undergoing a redevelopment next year, with displays being refreshed, the roof being attended to and insulation and heating being installed.
