Awaroa beach handed over to the people

From Morning Report, 8:26 am on 11 July 2016

Hundreds of people who made a pilgrimage to Awaroa to take part in the gifting of a beach were welcomed by local iwi. The site, in the northern Abel Tasman National Park, now belongs to all New Zealanders, after a crowdfunding campaign raised more than two million dollars to buy it. Our Nelson reporter Tracy Neal was at yesterday's handover.
