There will be refreshments at the RSA afterwards, and a donation box towards ongoing maintenance costs.
David Pepperell thanks the many local businesses, particularly Placemakers Porirua, G&S Civil, Coastal Fasteners, and Big Mac Slabs, the Porirua City Council, as well as the many other individual donors and supporters who have contributed their time, labour and skills to the project.

What a great thoughtful memorial in respect of the local PB boys and although I did not know them personally I did have the honour of surfing Wairaka point throughout the 80’s and the challenge was always formidable.So respect to you guys for what you are doing and next time I am back home in the Bay from Taranaki I will make a point of checking out the view of Wairaka and Kapiti from the new seat. Ka nui te Aroha, Nick Parata.
