Events put the spotlight on Leigh community

16:00, Feb 03 2014

A series of guided walks showcasing the Leigh area and a fire brigade open day are planned during the Anzac holiday weekend, April 25-27.

Organised by the Leigh business community, the walks include the Goat Island Walkway, Cape Rodney, Leigh Harbour, Goat Island to Pink Beach, Matheson Bay Family Walk, Leigh Coastal Walkway, Mt Tamahunga and Little Barrier Island.

They vary in length, time and grade with some crossing private land.

Online bookings have opened and numbers on each walk will be limited.

Most will be held on April 26, followed by a Leigh Volunteer Fire Brigade Open Day. Some repeat walks will be added on April 27 if the Saturday walks fill quickly, organisers say.

Registration is $15 adult, $5 children (5-16), $35 family (two adults, two children).


The walks support the Leigh Volunteer Fire Brigade which hosts an open day on the Saturday afternoon.

That will include demonstrations, followed by a sausage sizzle at the Leigh Fire Station in Hauraki Rd. Refreshments will be available and everyone is welcome.

The Leigh Volunteer Fire Brigade and its First Response Unit handles all emergencies in its area from medicals, fires, vehicle accidents, medical assists to St John Ambulance and even the occasional cat up a tree.
