Black Grace founder Neil Ierema and All Black halfback TJ Perenara are among the latest inductees to Porirua’s Hall of Fame.

The late actress and artist Ellinore Ginn and chocolate manufacturer James Henry Whittaker also join the line-up, which includes novelist Patricia Grace and and golfer Michael Campbell.

Cannons Creek born Ieremia, whose predominantly male Pacific Island and Māori dance company has earned national and international renown, says he was stoked to get his photo in the Hall of Fame at Te Rauparaha Arena, as his first time performing was at the Arena's predecessor, the Recreation Centre.

Perenara joins fellow Northern United rugby player Jerry Collins along the Arena corridor.
