Otago Goldfield's Heritage Trust treasurer, Odette Hopgood-Bride, who applied for a grant to enable a region wide review of heritage sites, confirmed the online application process was "really easy."

The grant approved for over $40K will enable the heritage trust to commence a five-year heritage site review. "The goal being to join with other heritage organisations to review heritage sites throughout Central Otago and Southern Lakes and create a comprehensive inventory," Odette says.

Our preferred form is  a few lines at most, with a link or an email contact for further information.

At a pinch we may self-host longer documents to link in the eNews, but they must be submitted as pdf or word documents as attachments to emails. They need some processing so there may be a delay in their being used.

If you are running a conference we will usually run a link once only - and if you don't have a website for it yet, then tell us when you have. 

Relevant job advertisements are welcome - there is no charge.
