re-erection on three occasions during the intervening years it finally became beyond repair. On 25th April 1965 it was taken down and replaced by a new Cross made of more permanent materials. The new Cross was also taken up the hill in sections and assembled and raised in exactly the same spot where the old wooden Cross had served as a memorial for nearly fifty years. School children helped by carrying small bags of cement up the hillside track. Before the Cross was permanently fixed in place, a bottle containing the names of all those present at the ceremony was buried in the concrete base. The dedication of the new Cross was carried out by the Rev. Doug Pullar, vicar of Tinui, in the presence of nearly 80 people. The whole occasion was referred to as ‘The Resurrection of a Cross’. The Cross is 3.6 metres high and 2.4 metres wide, and can be seen silhouetted on the skyline 300 metres above the village and parish at a distance of just over two kilometres.
