Many in the Far North enjoy walking for exercise or pleasure, and public walking tracks along rivers are proving especially popular. In Kerikeri, for example, a new walkway on Wairoa Stream attracts many people daily, while recently-restored reserves at Peacock Garden and Reinga Road support access to waterways. Local volunteers created these walkways, removing rubbish, weeding, planting native trees and turnin...

On March 10th more than 20 Guides, Brownies and Pippins under their leader Barbara Roberts went weed busting along the Wairoa Stream boundary with Inlet Estate.

They made short work of hundreds of brush wattle, gorse, taiwan cherry and tobacco weed seedlings leaving it almost as weed free as a cricket pitch which really impressed the Friends of Wairoa Stream who hadn't had the resources to deal to this area.

Thi...

Work has already commenced (picture taken Friday, 14 February) with the pavillion now fenced off. The demolition of the building and restoration of the site is expected to take until the end of April.

It was very pleasing to read that Rod has been awarded the Queen's Services Medal. Rod's achievements are summarised in this Northern /Advocate article.

I cannot say that Rod has dedicated his retired years to these multiple projects as you simply cannot define what Rod does as retirement. Most people in paid employment would not clock up the hours that Rod does. The multiple projects that he has been the drivin...

Those of you who regularly walk the Wairoa Stream will be aware of the improvements to the track since it was opened in April 2017. In addition to the activity on the track, more than 13,000 native trees and shrubs have been planted in a number of areas running along the length of that track. 

Those plantings require a considerable amount of TLC, especially at this time of of the year when rampant spring gr...

It is with regret that the Vision Kerikeri (VKK) committee has accepted David Clendon’s resignation from Chair and Committee-membership. David resigned in order to avoid any potential conflicts of interest, following his election as a councillor to the Far North District Council. On behalf of VKK we offer David our proud congratulations and thank him for his contributions.   

At the following meeting, commi...

In 2017 Vision Kerikeri (VKK) wrote to the Far North District Council suggesting that the speed limit on Kapiro Road needed to be reduced. The reasoning is outlined in this article by Rod Brown published on this site in July 2017. A VKK representative met with Council representatives in August 2017 and resolved to follow up with a public meeting on the issue. However, there was no further response from Council...

Thanks to a great effort by The Friends of the Wairoa Stream, a challenging section of riverside track has been dealt with.

The team have built a boardwalk, in just over a day, across the rocky section of track upstream from the top of the Te Wairere waterfall.

Well done guys!

Vision Kerikeri has for many years been promoting the benefits of a a main street that is prioritised for the pedestrian rather than the car. 

I walk through the CBD several times a week and often take time out to enjoy a coffee street side. The major detraction from both experiences is the traffic volume which generates considerable noise and vehicle fumes. The danger of crossing the street is somewhat mitigate...

After several weather postponements Kerikeri Primary School were finally able to complete their 2019 planting along the Wairoa Stream bank.  

Four members of Friends of Wairoa Stream who were present as guides, were really impressed when the 15 students planted all 150 plants in only two hours and were looking around for more plants.

The objective of the students is to transform a patch of Blackberry, Tobac...
