2:10 Water Safety - Rob Hewitt: Labour Day weekend signals the start of the boating season for many people. And with that, comes the message to stay safe on the water. One man keen to get that message out is Rob Hewitt. Rob is a maritime safety advisor and the lead tutor for Kia Maanu, Kia Ora (Stay afloat, Stay alive) campaign. He has his own history with the dangers of the water. On a routine dive trip off Mana Island in 2006, things went wrong, and Rob spent four days and three nights alone, floating in the sea before being rescued.
2:20 The Village Meats - Amelia Nurse: Michael and Lucy Law opened The Village Meats in Raumati Beach six months ago with the goal in mind to fill what they saw as a gap in the market: someplace where you could get free range meats with organic principles or certification, no chemicals or growth hormones and naturally fed. But they wanted to also sell at prices people could afford. Amelia Nurse visits to find out how business is going, and how to cut up a pig.
