It turns out life plans made between friends and held over drinks can actually turn into something tangible.

In Taranaki, five couples who bought the Urenui Hotel pub on a whim have no regrets and are looking forward to host the local watering hole.

The couples are hopeful the pub will open on December 15th, and their first live music event is set to be on December 22nd.

Two of the new owners, Stephen Houghton and Kayla Simpson spoke to Charlotte Cook.
