Paekākāriki fundraiser goes full steam ahead

From Nights, 9:50 pm on 16 May 2024

Two Paekākāriki locals want to bring a sauna to the local holiday park as a new community hub.

They're raising money now in the hopes of lighting the first logs by mid-July.

Organisers Sally Hett and Malcolm Johnstone talk to Emile Donovan about their vision.
