1990-1993 I supported the lovely Avis Wilson with transcriptions and research within the then fledgling Sefton/Kowhai Archives. We worked hard as a group and this organisation was eventually housed in the Kowhai County Council building within that time span.
Again for sale as of January 2013. I had heard last year that it may have to be demolished and not surprised to note that the advert for it states "is Earthquake damaged and is being sold as is."
June 2017: For sale again. Asking price $520,000. Presuming it got the all clear regarding the earthquake damage. Hopefully whoever buys it will look carefully in to that as the advert mentions nothing!
