Ticket Information:

  • Free Admission

Margery's life provides an example of how women in early 20th century Palmerston North were active participants in historical events, rather than passive observers. Unfortunately, their stories can be difficult to uncover and therefore they are rarely told.

Margery worked in military hospitals in England during World War II, she worked tirelessly in Palmerston North during the influenza epidemic, and she challenged local councils to contribute to a home for orphans and underprivileged children.

For the first time, Margery's story can be revealed.
Speaker: Leanne Hickman

Second Floor, Central Library - tea and coffee provided.
