ON THE BEACH: DoC Northland conservator Chris Jenkins and Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society chairwoman Mary Britton stroll on the Ngunguru sandspit, which will be the scene of a community walk on Sunday.

Twenty-four years after the Ngunguru Sandspit Protection Society dug their toes into the sand to stop it being subdivided, its return to the people can be celebrated with "A Walk on the Ngunguru Sandspit Beach".

The event on Sunday will celebrate several things - Father's Day, Conservation Week and the first anniversary since then-Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson and Whangarei MP Phil Heatley announced the Department of Conservation had acquired the Ngunguru Sandspit from Todd Property Group, formerly known as Landco.

The event on Father's Day won't be the first community-inspired Walk on the Ngunguru Sandspit Beach; earlier walks took place in 2007, 2010 and 2011 to "Welcome the Godwits".

But it will be the first since the announcement in August last year that DoC had swapped a parcel of surplus government land and buildings in Napier to gain possession of the sandspit.
