A monthly buggy stroll for parents with small children is proving a hit in the eastern suburbs.

The ‘Tinytown’ buggy walk has been running for three years and is attracting as many as 20
buggies on walks around local streets.

A partnership between the Kilbirnie Recreation Centre and early childhood provider PORSE, it
usually attracts around five to 10 local mums and dads and their tots.

Centre co-ordinator Elena Klein said it was a chance for parents to meet. “They’re in the same life stage. They can also see more of Wellington.”

Hataitai mum Ruth Ring said it was a good way to get out. “You need that push. It’s free and if it
suits, you can just pop along.”

PORSE consultant and co-facilitator Andrea Tindle said the collaboration came naturally since
the two organisations had similar goals. “We thought, what more can we do in the community?
It’s a nice networking opportunity. It helps that the coffee is free.”

Tinytown is a part of the Kilbirnie Recreation Centre for small tots and their parents.

The walks are every third Thursday of each month. See the Kilbirnie Recreation Centre
