Wither Hills Farm Park - track closures due to fire danger

The hot dry summer has forced the closure of most tracks in the Wither Hills Farm Park, including the Mountain Bike Park.

Due to the ‘very high to extreme’ fire risk conditions within the Farm Park, walkers and runners are asked to stay on the lower tracks around the town boundary only, and not to venture up the gullies or ridge paths.

Cyclists are asked to avoid the Mountain Bike Park as this area would be particularly dangerous in the event of a fire.

Stick to the lower tracks to avoid risk to yourself and to fire fighters.

Signs advising of the track closures have been installed at the Farm Park. The closure of these areas will apply at all times of the day.

Fire in our landscape. Everyone's Responsibility

Here you will find information on your Marlborough Kaikoura Fire and Emergency authority and how to protect yourself, your family; your neighbours and your business from the threat of rural wildfire

Relay for Life Marlborough Date Posted: Feb 26, 2019

RELAY FOR LIFE – MARLBOROUGH – FEBRUARY 2019

 

We did it!  13 members from the Marlborough District registered a team, aka “FENZ & Friends”, to participate in Relay for Life on 23 & 24 February 2019.  Teams set up camp and took turns relay style walking/running around a track for 14 hours while we enjoyed a carnival atmosphere of live music, entertainment, games, activities and fantastic community camaraderie.

We felt very special to be part of this worthy cause raising funds for the Cancer Society.  The organisers had a fundraising target of $100,000 to ensure that Cancer Society Marlborough could continue to provide vital, free support services and information for people gong through cancer.  The good news is that we managed to fundraise $116,000.  We, as a team, raised a massive $6,780!  The event commenced at 04:00pm on Saturday 23 February and finished at 06:00am on the Sunday morning.

We wish to thank all the organisers, sponsors, survivors, supporters and teams for making this a very special event.  We invited one of our volunteers, Lavina White, to walk the first lap with other survivors and supporters.  Lavina is a logistics member of the Incident Management Team for Marlborough.
