St Stephen's award recipients

Tamahere’s St Stephen’s Church has won a prestigious architectural award – nearly half a century after it was built.

The church, on the corner of Airport Rd and Tamahere Drive, received an enduring architecture award in the annual Waikato / Bay of Plenty Architecture Awards announced last night.

On hand to receive the award at a ceremony at Waikato University was local George Dingle, one of the last remaining parishioners who fought hard to have the church built after its predecessor was destroyed by arson.
