Tuesday October 3 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

MORE THAN 20 years of research and hard work is about to come to fruition for historian John Wilson with the release of his book Local Lives A History of Addington (see page 5). John was approached by the local residents’ association in the 1990s to write the book. He was working for the city council’s heritage team at the time so he knows his history. John wrote the book in his spare time interviewing many local people and collating a huge amount of information and photos for the 368-page publication which will be released on November 15. He says Addington is one of the city’s most fascinating suburbs. An interesting part of the book is how Prime Minister Richard Seddon would stop the train in Addington to visit his son-in-law, St Mary’s Church vicar Walter Bean. -Barry Clarke
