The next meeting of the NZCFS Hibiscus Coast branch, will be held on March 14, at the St John’s Catholic church hall, 180 Centreway, Orewa, at 3:00pm.
Henry Acland will give an illustrated talk on his time in China, with particular accent on his work in Chinese media. The latter included working for Xinhua, China’s equivalent of Reuters.
Henry was ‘our man in Beijing‘ for a little while, and he wrote an excellent and informative article for the Society website: Snow and Frugality in Beijing.
Soon after that, Henry returned to NZ and is now working for Radio NZ and gives occasional reports on Morning Report – the last one was on the hot subject of Chinese purchasing property in NZ!
So, Henry’s talk should not be missed!!
