One of the oldest motoring landmarks in Hawke’s Bay, the Puketapu swing, or suspension bridge is soon to disappear. It is being replaced by a modern two lane motorway with concrete piers.

There is a farm, 28 baches (a few of which are shown above), and camp sites which may be hired. A small toll is charged on cars visiting the beach. Despite the road, there is a large number of people prepared to subject their cars to spring-breaking punishment so they can enjoy a pleasant day or week at Waipatiki Beach.

The Westshore Surf Life-Saving Club Inc. need your assistance.  Pictured above is their new club house on Westshore Beach. They need money and volunteers to help finish this building. The building consists of a First Aid room, store, ladies’ and men’s changing rooms, and toilets, with Club rooms above. The only portion the City Council are paying for is the public changing rooms and toilets, the Surf Club providing the rest. This building and the Surf Club are a fine and useful asset to Westshore Beach, the most popular City beach. So next time you are on the beach, why not make a donation and remember the life they save may be your own. Apart from patrolling the teach, the Club also helps to keep it clean and provides a First Aid service free to all members of the public.
