- Input into the CHB Kete has been quite slow in 2011. We would love to hear from you if you have memories, pictures etc that you would like to share with the community.
- Slowly but surely the CHB Library archives are being digitised. A lot of previously unpublished items are being scanned and uploaded to the Kete website. You can help contribute by registering on the website and adding items, or answering questions about digital images and information already there. If you wish to contribute but are unsure of anything just contact firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the libraries on 858-9154 or 857-8123.
- We have been very lucky to have Hastings Library scan some old editions of The Waipawa Mail for us and these will be going up onto our Kete site over the next few weeks
- Other topics heading Kete's way include the next instalment of a trip over the Napier-Taupo Road by Coach and the ongoing history of one of CHB's early families (courtesy of Carol Lambert of Otane).
- In the CHB Mail, Tuesday March 30, Kete CHB showcased a photo thought to be taken at Ashcott Station circa 1842. In a great example of how Kete CHB works, Mr Harding contacted the Kete Administrator to let them know that the photo was actually taken at Mt Vernon Station and was of Waldron Harding on Maringo jumping a 7 wire fence. Date at this stage unknown. However Mr Harding did say that Waldron's sister then did the same jump side saddle!

What is Kete CHB? It is a digital repository for preserving old photos, documents and stories. Anyone can add content to the site. It is a great way to preserve your family histories, get information about CHB's past and share great stories about our district.
On it you can add photos, audio, video, web links and documents about Central Hawke's Bay and set up topics to discuss them as has happened here, or add stories about them. You can contact the CHB Kete Administrator Ngai Deckard by email or on 8589154 or by calling in to Waipukurau or Waipawa Libraries anytime.
