Presentation of Godley Gifts to The NZ High Commissioner, Lieutenant General Sir Jerry Mataparae
Office of the High Commissioner

Sir Jerry welcomed me to tea at the High Commission and spent a good half hour discussing and viewing Godley Gifts. Sir Jerry was much taken with the beauty and exquisite production of Godley Gifts and hoped the book set would become a permanent feature of the High Commissioner’s office, in London. The site of the New Zealand High Commission, to the immediate west of Trafalgar Square, is only a large stone’s throw from where the management committee of The Canterbury Association first met, immediately south of Trafalgar Square.
