Well known Wai­heke host passes

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

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.
