Church Move

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:24 pm on 12 May 2011

Marlborough's second oldest church is about to move for the second time in its 130-year life. The Tua Marina Methodist Church has to be relocated to save it from rot and neglect. But the people caring for the old church have to raise $25,000 to cover the cost of the move and a spruce up. Basil Parke is the great grandson of the man who built the church and has been a driving force behind its relocation to save it.
