Tribute to a walking champion - Wellington City Councillor Chris Calvi-Freeman

My name is Murray Darroch and since the beginning of the 21st century I have been living in Tawa, Wellington.   During the period 1973-1989 I lived in Hataitai at 14 Hepara Street.

Spring Clean the Steps

Join us for a Sunday afternoon spring cleaning the Grafton Road to Maida Vale Road steps, Roseneath - the longest stretch of steps in Wellington. These fabulous steps have become overgrown over winter and need a brush up to be ready for the spring and summer foot traffic down to the Balaena Bay beach. Bring your broom or weeder along and lend a hand with your neighbours - or just come along for a chat.

 

Step out for a social Sunday work out on the longest steps in Wellington

Walk2Work Day 2016
