How to get involved

We would like to capture the memories and activities of Central Hawke's Bay people. You can help in creating a digital knowledge basket of Central Hawke's Bay memories for future generations to enjoy. Have you got a story or photo’s you wish to share with us? It is easy to register and it is free

As part of the Kete we have an oral history archive. There are many interviews with Central Hawke’s Bay residents with their memories of our district. You can listen to them here.

You can also get involved by contributing to further interviews, suggesting names of people to be interviewed or interviewing someone yourself – we can provide a recording device, suggested questions and permission forms.
