Mayor’s Message – December 2017

Welcome to this special bumper edition of Link. This edition we’re focused on celebrating the great stuff to do around our district while the sun shines and (some of us) have some spare time on our hands.

This summer is a particularly special one for our cycle and walking network. We’ve now got a brand new (…and bright green) bridge,
the Perry Bridge between Ngaruawahia and Horotiu, thanks to the generous folks at Brian Perry Charitable Trust and a number of others. This project has been delivered in conjunction with us at Waikato District and by NZTA. Whether you’re ready to cycle from the Hakarimata’s to Hamilton (maybe after a quick dash up the Hakarimata’s 1349 stairs) or take a leisurely cycle along the banks of
the Waikato River, the now completed Ngaruawahia to Hamilton section of the Te Awa River Ride is a must do this summer.

The summer Link is packed with ideas for fun things you can do locally with your families or with visitors. Check out pages 4 and 5 for the top 5 free things and walks in the district and pages 10 and 11 for the district’s top 5 hidden gems and activities to do with the kids.
