Time for a stroll at Urunga
WE'VE been walking on it for some months unofficially, but this Saturday is the official ribbon-cutting moment for the Urunga boardwalk extension.
And if you haven't yet wandered along the final 400 metre stage, now is the perfect time.
Everyone is invited to the event, which will take place from 10am beside the boardwalk in Morgo Street Reserve. Celebrations will include a sausage sizzle, music and loads of family fun, including a free jumping castle for the kids.
The extension means the route now extends for almost one kilometre from the town to the sea, terminating in a viewing platform, complete with wheelchair turning area. Timber steps from there give pedestrian access to the beach. Improvements to the reserve will also be on show.
