It was great to be able to walk around the Mount today and see families with pushchairs, and a wheelchair user enjoying the beautiful weather and reopened track, after being closed for such a longtime.
A big thank you to our new council and all those involved in the project, for "getting on with the job" and it shows how a bit of common sense and co-operation goes a long way in overcoming problems and issues facing our city.

At 8am on New Year's Eve the council began closing off parking spaces along the main beach, Marine Parade, thus stopping families and others from accessing the beach for the day.
The question is why?
When there is no organised entertainment on New Year's Eve, there are roadblocks on the Maunganui Rd/Salisbury Ave roundabout stopping vehicles from accessing that part of town anyway.
