A conversation with Randell descendants

A conversation with Randell descendants

In the last week of April 2021, we celebrated the launch of Saving Randell Cottage. A short film talking with descendants of William and Sarah Randell about how the historic Randell Cottage saved from demolition, restored and donated to become a residence for New Zealand and French writers.

Listen to Beverley Randell Price and her daughter Susan Price as they share memories of the rescue and renovation of their ancestors’ colonial home (6:37 minutes).
