Moving Onwards

Since the closure of the NWC Development Hub in June 2017 we have been busy winding up the original trust and planning for a possible new siting in Wellington.

Given the fact that all work falls on the shoulders of the already busy volunteers there is still some way to go before a new venture, possibly initially as a container pop up, can be started.

In the meantime, partly because of the ongoing interest in what we were doing in Picton, we are updating the information on this website and given any spare energy we shall update this regularly with some news links and other relevant bits of information.

In the meantime don’t hesitate to contact us with ideas, information and suggestions as to how we might proceed over the next 12 months.

Dear Professor Whale

Released a few months ago by Wellington’s Gecko Press, this charming book is a follow-up to the international bestseller ‘Yours Sincerely Giraffe’.

Professor Whale is the only whale left at Whale Point. He thinks often of the old days when his friends were all around and they competed at the Whale Point Olympics. One day, he gets a letter from Wally. The young whale has heard about the great big enormous whale who won gold for his spectacular spouting. That gets the Professor thinking. What if there could be a new Olympics, with the sea full of whales again?






Order from Gecko Press or buy from any good children’s bookstore.

The ideal Christmas present.

The NWC also has in stock children’s NWC t-shirts which make fantastic christmas presents.
