Look around and you’ll see so much that the Landmarks Trust has been involved with, including:
In our region we are blessed with great natural features from the mountains to the sea, and with our perfect growing soils and Mediterranean climate; an abundance of the ingredients for the good life. Landmarks’ focus is to preserve and enhance our beautiful parks, streetscapes and public, as well as private spaces for the enjoyment of all.
The Landmarks philosophy is at the forefront of a number of Council projects, supported and often initiated by the Landmarks Trust.
The preservation of our district’s history is the foundation of our future. Passionate historians among our members spearhead the drive to retain the diverse elements of our history.
Held the second Tuesday of each month (except in December and January), in the Hastings War Memorial Library. Hear interesting stories of Hastings told by great Speakers; 5.30pm to 6.30pm. Gold coin entry.
The Landmarks philosophy encourages the preservation of our architectural heritage and encourages the design of new buildings that raise the bar. Council is proactive in the promotion of this public face of our district while the Trust acts as an advocate for the Landmark’s philosophy.
Art adds that “special factor” to our district, reflecting who we are and uplifting the spirit. Using outstanding (mostly) local artists to guide and create new work, the Landmarks Trust, along with Council, has overseen the installation of a wide range of works to inspire and admire in our public places.
Everywhere you look in the district there is art; from David Trubridge's ‘Leaf Lights’ to Neil Dawson's ‘Suntrap’ to mana whenua carvings.
Grants, donations and Council funds have afforded these works. The artistic community in Hastings is talented and diverse, recognised both nationally and internationally.
Through-out the Hastings city centre, Havelock North Village and selected sites (e.g. Karamu High School and William Nelson Park) there are stunning sculptures, statues, murals and architectural works. These are now an integral part of any redevelopment plan within the district – the icing on the cake.
