As part of our Visiting Programme we have so enjoyed welcoming senior members of the community to Hillary House. Their enthusiasm and interest in Sir Edmund Hillary is infectious and we just love their stories and memories.
A group from Ellerslie Probus visited in March 2018 following a presentation by the Chair, Robin Houlker, at a meeting in November 2017. They created a new record – 40 excited people poured off the bus. In an email to the Chair, organiser Val Jackson said, “thank you so much for our wonderful morning on Friday. Everyone enjoyed your hospitality and your sharing of ‘The Story’. Your passion was infectious and inspiring, and generated much interest. We wish you all the best as you continue to develop the project.”
