New maps to explore the Shore

Congratulations to Margaret Scrymgeour, a member of Living Streets Aotearoa, for compiling into a handy booklet form a series of walking routes to help people explore the hidden walkways and small reserves throughout Auckland's North Shore. Margaret has been involved in walking activities on the North Shore for the past 30 years. The routes were "road tested" by Margaret with help from family and friends.  Albany Newcomers Network, Rex Oddy and Albany CoCo Inc assisted with the publication of these booklets.
