Steve Norman’s history of heritage volunteering began in 1979 when he and his wife Kitty moved to New Westminster and they connected with like-minded heritage preservationists. There was never a more determined and principled heritage enthusiast than Steve Norman. His sense of heritage justice is legendary. He long sought heritage conservation and design guidelines for the Queen’s Park neighbourhood. He served as a director of the NWHPS [now Heritage New West] on/off for more than 30 years, and held the position of President of the Queen’s Park Residents Association for a period of time in the 1990s and then most recently served as its Vice-President. He and then President Kathleen Langstroth together led the grassroots movement in 2016/2017 to help create a Heritage Conservation Area in the Queen’s Park neighbourhood. Their commitment to the HCA and the quest for the heritage holy grail cannot be overstated. Steve is also being recognized for his role with the Heritage Homes Tour as a house volunteer–a position that involves representing the society as a guide on tour day. Steve, a retired teacher, has been a dedicated and knowledgeable tour volunteer with the most “volunteer hours” since the Tour’s beginning in 1980. Steve has always been available and at the ready. –BC Heritage
