    Dear Give a Little Contributors to the Waipu Cycle and Walkway. Thank you!!

    As you'll know the walkway is all but finished from Waipu Cove to McLean Road. We are waiting for WDC to complete the bridge extension and our contractors to roll the top layer-both of which is happening January 2021. However, it is very usable and has been getting plenty of use!

    The community planting in August was such a positive vibe. Special thanks to Dave and Deb Brown for the fabulous easement - the water features are great, Crombie and Mike for the fencing and Paul Jenkins and his crew for the contracting. We also secured some great grant funding as well your fabulous individual donations and support. THANK YOU

    We are ready to move onto the next stage- Watch this space!

    Once again, you've been awesome with your donations, and we trust you enjoy walking/riding the new stretch in and out of Waipu Cove. (Thats 6km return folks!)

    Any queries or suggestions, please don't hesitate to be in touch.

  • Planting the Easement- wow- what a turn out!

    Around 90 people turned out to help plant over 2,000 natives on the newest section of the Waipu cycleway.

    It’s in the middle of the trail between McLean and Cullen Roads.

    All ages and abilities and walkers/cyclists and community supporters were present.

    It took 5 of us nearly 3 hours to set out the plants to a planned map on Saturday- and just over an hour for the community to plant them on Sunday. 😊

    This section was made possible through the generous gifting of an easement over farm land where the main road has a difficult and dangerous road section.

    The Awesome Paul Jenkins is giving the ground a chance to dry out before he can complete this stage. So NB - it's not finished yet!

    PS - We observed level 2 Covid rules around tracing, wellness and distancing (as far as possible with a crowd of enthusiasts- some wore masks).
