Two Sunday Strolls scheduled, at 2pm on April 7th and April 14th

Living Streets Hamilton is holding another short series of Sunday Afternoon Strolls, both in the Hillcrest area this time. The walks will start at 2pm on both April 7th and April 14th, and will be between 5 and 7km in length (with an optional short-cut on the longer one).  (1 and 2 hours in length depending on how fast people like to walk.)

For the first one, on April 7th, we will meet in the Jansen Park main carpark, off Morris Rd, and proceed via Hillcrest High School, up to the university to explore the beautiful university grounds, and back via streets, walkways and Hillcrest Park.

The second walk on April 14th will start from the Hamilton Gardens, meeting at the bus stop in the Hungerford Tce carpark (off the "stone blanket" roundabout at the end of Galloway St). We will walk through the gardens and along the border of Hayes Paddock, and return through quiet Hamilton East streets, with the option of returning to the carpark via Nixon St or continuing along Brookfield St, through Flynn Park, Hillcrest Rd and Mansel Ave, crossing Cambridge Rd at the underpass and returning to the gardens along Howell Ave and through the old cemetery grounds.

For more details, contact Judy on 8552019. Don't forget the sunscreen/hat/raincoat/water bottle, depending on the conditions!

Sunday 7th April, at 8.30 – to 10.00am.

We have a group of enthusiastic scouts helping out at Humarie Park, removing weeds (see photos) with the intention of planting native plants back into the park later in the year.

A huge thanks to those of you that have been supporting this project so far.
The group are keen to have as many people help out as possible , so if you have some time to spare on Sunday morning (the end of daylight saving!) for about an hour and a half, they would greatly appreciate your help on Sunday 7th April, at 8.30 – to 10.00am. Meet at the park entrance, Cranwell Place.(Off Berkley Ave in Hillcrest)

Please bring along gardening gloves, suitable footwear , loppers and lots of energy!
