Star-reflecting stream

The Friends of Waiwhetū Stream is an active community group established in 2011 to work towards a healthy ecosystem for the Waiwhetū Stream in Lower Hutt.

Henry Steele


Kua hinga te tōtara i Te Waonui a Tāne


The Friends remember committee member and volunteer Henry Steele, who passed away on 24 October after a short illness.

Henry made great contributions to Friends of Waiwhetu Stream and was an extraordinary volunteer in our group, working tirelessly to help establish and maintain the urban forest in the Rishworth Reserve in Waiwhetū. Henry also co-ordinated our monthly rubbish collections for many years.

Henry's funeral is at Gee and Hickton, corner Knights Road and Cornwall St, on Monday 30 October at 2 pm.  The Friends would appreciate you remembering Henry and being thankful for him in your own way at this time.
