What a fantastic Day!

On November 24th volunteers from the Kathmandu Summit Club and friends met at the incredible Pukerua Bay, to give this place a little love and get the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful coastline.

Given the adventurous nature of the group our intrepid volunteers had their boots on and water bottles filled, ready for the hike.  This area is looked after well by the local residence, so to find the rubbish you’ve got to walk.  Ben Knight led the group around the point where rubbish accumulates and the group returned with more than 700 litres.

After the hike, everyone enjoyed a well deserved lunch, all courtesy of Kathmandu

Huge thanks to Kathmandu, the Pukerua Bay residence association, and all the volunteers that gave up a few hours of their weekend to give some love to a wild and beautiful stretch of coastline.

As part of our amazing collaboration with Kathmandu Summit Club, we invite you to join us on Saturday November 24th for a Beach Cleanup at Pukerua Bay, Kāpiti Coast, Wellington.

Porirua City Council and community groups are lovingly overlooking restoration projects all around this area, so we want to help them give some love to this special area and pick up some of the marine debris that washes up on this coast.  You can either just clean up around Brendan’s Beach, or, if you feel like a bit of an adventure, walk further afield and go right around the point to Plimmerton.

We’ll meet from 9.45am at the car park at Pukerua Bay; look out for the Sustainable Coastlines and Kathmandu flags. We’ll be starting from 10.00am and finishing up around 2.00pm. You can stay for as little or as long as you like, but around noon we’ll all come together for a some tasty food and some Phoenix Organics Drinks.

The beach is near the trainline and Pukerua Bay train station is a short walk from the beach and there are plenty of trains from Wellington on Saturday morning.  If you walk all the way around the point, you can get the train home from Plimmerton!

To participate, please take a few seconds to sign up via registration at Kathmandu’s Summit Club. 

This is a beautiful but exposed area so please dress and prepare accordingly for windy weather and a day outdoors. The beach cleanup basecamp is within easy walking distance from the car park – just look for the flags and you’ll find us!
