Waiky Beach Jan 16

It was begun to accompany last year’s election campaign for Waikanae ward councilor following the death of Tony Lloyd, but the intention was also to provide a non-commercial magazine for Waikanae people — a mix of issues, history and just pretty pictures.  Posts now total 370. It is still growing in popularity, with just over 1,000 visitors to date and over 4,000 views, most by locals but some from further afield including other countries.

As Google has been encrypting search terms since 2013, we don’t know directly what visitors have been searching for, but can tell from posts visited that the pending Expressway and development opportunities because of it in the 1 km distance between it and the beach is by far the biggest interest.
