Sad news today

: 9 Jul 2021

We are all reeling today from the news that President of Living Streets Aotearoa, Andy Smith has died. Our walking tõtara has fallen.

He was such a collaborative person with many interests and friends that we know this will affect many of you. Andy really committed himself to the common good as well as having fun along the way. 

He always said we are here for the long haul, and so we will continue on our path. 

We will let you know when we have any details about funeral arrangements.
