Margot Mcrae - Deputy Chair

Margot McRae has been campaigning for the protection of Devonport’s heritage since 1995 and received a Queen’s Service medal for her efforts in 2017.

She grew up in Christchurch and as a teenager, came to value all things old and historic. Her family has deep connections to Banks Peninsula and the beautiful historic village of Akaroa had a strong impact on her developing love of heritage.

She attended Canterbury University in the old neo gothic stone buildings (now the Arts Centre in central Christchurch) where she received a BA in English and a diploma in journalism.

Margot spent many years as a journalist and later a playwright. Her first play Finding Murdoch had three productions.

She settled in Devonport in 1993 and has lived here with her family ever since.

She served on two local school boards, as a Devonport Community Board member and became a member of Devonport Heritage in the mid 1990’s.

She joined the board of the Victoria Theatre Trust in 2008 and has been instrumental in the re-opening and revival of the Victoria Theatre.

Margot continues to make short documentaries about heritage houses and theatre restorations in Auckland.
