Living Streets Wellington has an interesting sounding talk coming up in conjunction with their AGM:
Dr Tim Halpine is the guest speaker at Living Streets Wellington branch AGM on Monday 22nd June .
He studied for his Doctor of Podiatric Medicine in California and now lives with his family in Wilton, Wellington. He is a keen sportsman, involved in tennis and gym.
The human foot is an amazingly engineered structure that is both flexible and strong. Its design has evolved while functioning on soft irregular surfaces, for example the forest floor. Modern surfaces which are flat and hard, and extreme stress caused by running or prolonged walking can cause painful conditions to arise.
If you love walking, learn how to avoid problems arising that could curtail your steps! Come along to our evening meeting and hear Tim give hints on early recognition of foot problems and advice on shoe selection.
…The AGM is at Committee Room 1, Wellington City Council, 101 Wakefield Street from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday 22nd June 2009.
There will be refreshments provided. The new Wellington walking maps will also be available (Newtown Berhampore Walking Map Edition 2 and the three Lunchtime Walks brochures).

Something I hadn’t realised was that they have a whole lot of downloadable PDF maps of footways in Northland, Highbury, the back of Newtown and others. It even includes a full list of where to find Public Toilets in Wellington, with opening hours.
