Come along and join the fun as we celebrate the official opening of Stages 3 & 4 of the Kamo Shared Path. Walk, run, ride, skate, skoot the new shared path (6.4km round trip to Fisher Terrace, Kamo).

The road-separated route connects together the communities, schools and key facilities such as:
• the Auckland University Campus,
• Whangarei City Centre and
• Kensington Park.

The shared path is one of three (Onerahi, Raumanga, Kamo) designed to get more Whangarei people off the road and more able to move around by cycling or walking.

As well as creating safe links for school children and workers the routes should ease pressure on the city’s roads and increase health and wellbeing in the community.

Poll: Should Crate Day be banned?

Caroline Williams Reporter from Rodney Times

Hibiscus Coast revellers will be forced to celebrate Crate Day on private property this weekend, as authorities impose a temporary alcohol ban in parks and beaches, following two years of successful bans.
The 48 hour ban on Saturday and Sunday covers beaches, foreshore and reserves between Waiwera and Arkles Bay in north Auckland.
Crate Day was started by The Rock radio station to embark summer by sharing a crate of beers with mates.
However, many participants see it as a challenge to consume the whole crate alone, getting extremely drunk in the process.
Rodney locals are known to go hard on Crate Day, with mess left behind in public places playing a part in the ban (see photo) enforced by police and the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board.
Do you support the temporary liquor ban?
