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.
