Photo Dave Hall

LITTLE did they know at the time of posing for this photo, but they would soon be tramping alone.

With all but essential services now shut down, and people in self-isolation, group recreational gatherings like this one for the Ngatapuwai a Taneatua Tramping Club are no longer possible.

However, people in self-isolation are still encouraged to stay active and enjoy the outdoors – albeit in a more solitary capacity.

When the tramping club did get together earlier this year for a tramp around Kawerau, they could not help but stop when they saw an “Aged Persons” sign.

“We spotted the sign and felt it needed an age defying photo,” says club member Dave Hall.
