Ngaio Marsh 20th Anniversary

A wonderful portrait of Dame Ngaio Marsh was unveiled for the 20th anniversary of the Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village to the surprise and delight of residents and guests.

The portrait painted in 1956 was gifted to Ngaio Marsh residents this week to celebrate the anniversary of the 1999 opening of the village in Papanui.

The retirement village was named in honour of Dame Ngaio, the Christchurch detective fiction author, regarded as one of the ‘Queens of Crime’ alongside Agatha Christie in the 1930s.
