It is finally finished – the new heritage kitchen at the museum is built, installed and functioning!
With funding from Pub Charity, the kitchen was constructed and installed by B&F Laminates. During the installation process the plumber found a scary hot water cylinder, which was more suited to being an exhibit. So with funds from Waikanae Lions and the Rotary Club of Kapiti a new cylinder was purchased. Craig Nicholson our friendly plumber donated materials and time and got the cylinder up and running.
So we thank all those who helped along the way, and we do hope you will take the time to visit and enjoy this new way of looking back. In true museum style our new/old kitchen is located where the old/old kitchen was back when this part of the building was the Waikanae Postmaster’s house.
