At dawn on Wednesday morning, Marlborough’s new district library and art gallery site was ceremonially blessed with the laying of a mauri stone by iwi representatives.

Rain failed to dampen spirits as an appreciative group of more than 50 guests gathered to mark the historic moment.

Speakers included Shane Graham (Ngāti Rarua), Marlborough Mayor John Leggett and Millennium Art Gallery Trust chairman Rick Wilson.
