Formation of Trust

Formation of Trust

Dealing with the proposed formation of a National Historical Trust on a provincial basis as the controlling and administering body for such a museum of Nelson history, Mr Baigent said that it was hoped all local bodies in the district would be partners. All those approached had agreed in principle with the scheme except the Motueka Borough Council, which had replied that it preferred all Motueka historical material to remain in Motueka. He hoped that such a view would be subject to revision in the light of further information given and that there would be one centre of history for the province.

The Mayor of Nelson, Mr S. I. Russell, had, said Mr Baigent, agreed to call a public meeting of all interested to discuss the formation of a Nelson Historical Trust as soon as the draft of a trust bill now being prepared by the Town Clerk was ready. That was the position they had now reached.
