The 175th celebrations for the beginnings of Howick and Districts will be the whole year of 2022.
The highlight month is November with the key focus days from Friday 11 to Sunday 20, November 2022. A commemoration day of activities remembering the arrival of the first Fencibles of the United Kingdom and Ireland will be on Saturday, November 12, at Howick Beach.
Why the 175th?
It is 25 years since the Howick and Districts 150th celebrations (in 1997) and 25 years until the bicentenary in 2047.
This 175th anniversary is a once-in-a-generation commemoration and we want to make the most of the community celebration opportunity in 2022.
