Papanui Paraders Leisure Marching Team was established in 2001. At present the team has 12 members but at times has had as many as 16 with many having been part of the team for over 5 years. As one team member said, she ‘joined marching to see NZ’ and this has certainly happened with the team now entering events from Invercargill to Auckland & many places in-between. Fun, fitness and friendship is the motto for Leisure Marching and this is surely followed by much fun and many friendships made when the team has travelled. Fitness is taken care of with practice being held on Tuesdays at either Tullet Park or in the Bowling Club rooms.

The elected committee endeavours to put together a programme which offers a mix of guest speakers (covering a variety of interesting topics) and also subsidised coach trips to those ‘hidden’ places of interest throughout the Canterbury region – often including morning/afternoon tea or lunch. Our mid-winter and end-of year lunches are always popular and very well supported. All Papanui club members are welcome to join.
