Takaka Library: HerStory - Lois Benjamin

Friday 24th August 2018

2018 marks the 125th anniversary of the signing of the Electoral Act that gave all New Zealand women the right to vote.

We are celebrating Golden Bay women and their stories as part of our Suffrage 125 celebrations.

In this event Lois Benjamin talks about her family's life as the last lighthouse keepers at Kahurangi Lighthouse.

Lois' parents, Jean and Alva Page, were the last lighthouse keepers at Kahurangi, which became automated in 1958.

Join us for this fascinating insight into life at a very remote location.
