The Houses of Bernard Cox

The Houses of Bernard Cox

Bernard Cox (1905 - 1970) was a Palmerston North architect. The houses designed by Cox are important as examples of modernism, a major twentieth century movement that revolutionised the way houses are designed and constructed and which expressed the social vision of the mid-twentieth century. This booklet, detailing Cox's life and some of his buildings, was written to accompany an exhibition mounted by the Manawatu Branch of the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.

Best Care Charitable Trust - Danielle Harris

Best Care Charitable Trust - Danielle Harris

The community and voluntary sector contributes significantly to the social, spiritual, economic, physical, and cultural health and well-being of all New Zealanders. Often working with the most vulnerable and marginalised groups in society, the work of community and voluntary organisations is not always visible. However the services produced by such organisations support the people of our City. This video profiles one of five community organisations operating in Palmerston North. They were created by the Palmerston North City Council to help raise the profile of the community services sector and promote its significance to the wider community.
