227 Huarahi o Kapiti, Paraparaumu

He tohu whenua te Pourewa Whakahaere o Kapiti Coast i hangaia i 1947.  I mōhiotia i mua ko te Paraparaumu Aerodrome.  I whakapaitia i 1939, ā, i whakamahia e ngā wāhanga RNZAF i te wā o te pakanga.  I te katinga o te Taunga Waka Rererangi o Rongotai mō ngā whakahoutanga i 1947, ko Paraparaumu te Taunga Waka Rererangi matua tae noa ki 1959.  Nā te mea i ohotata te piki haere o ngā nekehanga rererangi ki tua o te rua tekau i ia rā, e tika ana me whai pourewa whakahaere.

Kāore i kitea e ngā kaihoahoa Tari Mahi Tūmatanui he mahere tuatahi mō ngā pourewa whakahaere.  Engari ko te mea ngāwari nei tōna hanga, te mea kua pūmau tana tū roa.  He mea whakahou hoki kia hāngai ai ki ngā hangarau e tika ana mō te wā.  Ko te Pourewa Whakahaere, he mea rēhita hei Category II Historic Place, ka mutu e whakamahia tonutia ana hei ratonga rerenga pārongo.
