Guest Speaker John Christian - Pitcairn Island
John spoke about the settlement of Pitcairn island, which was initially settled by the mutineers of the Bounty.  John's descendants came from the Isle of Man so he is probably related to Fletcher Christian.  John wove a story of great adventures, sailing ships, mutineers, brave men in small boats, dastardly and wicked deeds, beautiful women, deserted islands, faulty maps and postal stamps.
For more information his presentation is here.

AED installation in Hinemoa Street (July 2018)

Kapiti Rotary (in conjunction with WFA) has now completed its 5th installation of an AED (automated external defibrillator). It is on the Coast Community Church building in Hinemoa Street. Visitors to the Church, local residents and businesses in the northern end of the Hinemoa Street area will now have fast access to an AED if someone has a cardiac event.

Donors for this site were Kapiti Rotary, Coast Community Church, Geethal Data Systems, Kapiti Lions and the Combined Probus club of Kapiti Central.

A dedication/unveilling ceremony for all interested groups will be held at a date to be advised.
