Signs of our heritage

Published: 6 November 2018

Interpretive signage is being installed at parks in the Albert-Eden Local Board area as a simple and cost-effective way to celebrate the history of the area.

Board members Peter Haynes, Graeme Easte and Margi Watson recently unveiled new signage at Withiel Thomas Reserve.

It outlines some of the achievements of Professor Sir Algernon Withiel Thomas and his wife Emily (Russell) Thomas. Sir Algernon was a notable academic and a scientist, as well as an educationalist and a conservationist.

The unveiling was a special moment for the Thomas family members who attended.

“The new signage will allow the history of individual parks to be explained and give a sense of place to them,” says Albert-Eden Local Board Deputy Chair Glenda Fryer.

Interpretive signs will also be installed at Windmill Park and Melville Park in Epsom over the coming months.
