Silversky Track opening

After almost 18 months of dedicated volunteer labour and the support of Wellington City Council and Transpower, the Silversky track was officially opened on 9th May 2015.

A celebratory lunch was laid on down at the Huntleigh Park Girl Guides Centre, with a welcoming speech from Mayor Celia Wade-Brown.CeliaWadeBrown Opening Silversky Speeches at Guides Centre 9MAY2015

The assembled gathering then made its way to the new bridge on the lower section of the Silversky Track. Funding for the construction of the bridge was provided through the Transpower Community Fund. The official track opening was marked by the traditional cutting of the ribbon, with the honours going to Kevin Small on behalf of Transpower, here seen with local Councillor Andy Foster. Graham Weir, a key member of the team of local volunteers looks on.
