Good weather, positive numbers, new walks combined with old favourites set the scene for a very successful 2018 Mangawhai Walking Weekend. With a wide range of walks straddling Thursday to Sunday and a sold out Food and Wine Festival on Saturday afternoon, the Mangawhai Walking Weekend was a success on all fronts, with 1750 tickets sold across all events! Most of all thank you to all of those who walked with us this year, making the weekend such a resounding success!
Someone asked what the walking weekend was doing about Kauri Die back, and caring for these giants of our forests which once covered the landscape in Mangawhai. The few that remain are precious and walkers were provided with the means to clean their shoes on the way in and out of walks. Here is a few of Jean Goldsmith and her friend Vicki in period costume before doing the Romance of the Kaipara walk.
