    What fascinating networking. That's so NZ.

    We got a little Vegepod earlier this year after being impressed with the neighbours' large one which we were watering while they were away. It was delivered as a dreaded flat pack but with instructions in NZ English, and after filling it with some bags of stuff and seedlings, it has been very prolific. The most successful vegetable gardening I have ever done, in a small space. But not much use telling people about this at this time, sorry.

    Great idea to reactivate this (usually caring but always interesting) online community. Thanks, Russell.

    Many disabled people are the targets of hate speech and such attitudes sometimes result in violent attacks. The hate speech is directed at them specifically because of their impairment. I would like to see disability hate speech laws, as well as education on ableism.

    Thank you. I've just caught up with this. What was her name? She is likely to be in the IHC collection of papers and correspondence in the Turnbull Library. There are also photos of some of the women activists. That first committee was on very good terms with Peter Fraser and other politicians. After Peter Fraser lost the 1949 election he shifted in with his step daughter-in-law Rini, her husband (his step son) and her daughter Alice in Ranui Crescent in Khandallah, while the Anyons lived in the adjoining Everest Street. The Anyons are remembered because they ran that first committee and secretary Margaret Anyon was a very prolific writer and that history has survived. But there are also numerous names in the records.

    I have just written a biography of JB Munro who was a long time head of IHC and included a bit more of the history and context.

    Even more toxic the shame of disability and difference and the prejudice against children and families.

    Thanks for posting this Russell, and for your ongoing support of the Access blog site. Hopefully the names Margaret and Hal (Harold) Anyon, and their battles for inclusion of all children, will soon better known as a result of the new focus on teaching our NZ history.
