Bridge2Rocks Timebank

timebank

Time Banking is a way of trading skills in a community. It uses time, rather than money, as the measurement tool. Members of a Time Bank share their skills with other members within the community and are given time credits for the work they do.  With the credits they gain, each member can ‘buy' someone else's time, and get the service they need.

Eastender Group Track Maintenance

Track work

The Eastenders are a group of (mostly) retired men who meet twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Monday from 9am-12pm. The group was initially set up by members of the Summit Road Society but membership is not a prerequisite. See www.summitroadsociety.org.nz for more information.

Due to retirements and people moving away we are always looking for people to boost numbers. The only requirements are a love of the hills and a sense of humour!  Tools needed are usually those found in any garden shed - spades, shovels, grubbers and loppers.

Sea to Summit Track

Track building

The Sea to Summit track was marked out by a committed group of volunteers in 2012. The track runs from the bottom of Richmond Hill Road to the top of Richmond Hill via the east side of Clifton Hill.

The current status of the track is unclear. After making a deputation to the Hagley Ferrymead Community Board at which it was agreed that the the next step in making the track official would be referring the matter to the Council's Transport and Greenspace Unit.

Of course this doesn't mean that you can't walk up the track - just that it doesn't officially exist as a 'walking track' - yet.
