Well known Waiheke host passes
It is with great sadness that we have heard of the recent passing of Waiheke Walking Festival friend Sir Rob Fenwick. A wonderful openhearted man, filled with wisdom, kindness and a love of our unique land and marine environment – and a champion for native trees. Sir Rob and Lady Jennie so generously gifted a large piece of their Te Matuku land to create a stunning section of the Te Ara Hura walkway and provide wonderful walking opportunities for everyone. Sir Rob also hosted walks through their private land during the Festival for many years, leading walks through the native bush, visiting his favourite puriri tree, and enjoying oysters and wine on the foreshore.
