Motorhomes descending on Reefton for Labour weekend

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:50 pm on 23 October 2020

After the tiny West Coast town of Reefton was given "motorhome friendly" status by the New Zealand motor caravan association, 400 are booked in for the long weekend.

Buller District mayor, Jamie Cleine, talks to Jesse about the influx of campervans, how they'll cope and what is planned for the town's 150th anniversary this Labour weekend.
