Hastings vege shop re-opens nine months after Cyclone Gabrielle

From Morning Report, 7:55 am on 17 November 2023

A small vege shop in rural Hastings has just re-opened its doors, nine months after it was destroyed during cyclone Gabrielle.

But while it might not look it, locals are spreading the word that Springfield is open - to help a couple in their seventies get back on their feet.

Reporter Lauren Crimp paid them a visit.
