Wellington Branch maintains a friendship with the Wellington Historical Early Settlers Assn and we have a standing invitation to attend their lunch and talks held on a Thursday at the Museum of City and Sea. 

Wellington Branch is working to arrange in orderly fashion the records of the Founders Women’s Committee that began in 1940, working to aid servicemen and refugees. The women entertained servicemen at home , sent parcels of food and specialist clothing overseas to troops and refugees, and  schools in England. Because of the shortage of knitting wool that was imported, they bought spinning wheels and spun raw wool from farms.  It is our intention to have the records digitised.
