Around the motu: Che Baker in Southland

From Nine To Noon, 10:45 am on 9 November 2023

Che joins Kathryn with another update on what's happening at the Gore District Council, where some ratepayers are unhappy with the decision to keep Stephen Parry on as interim CEO even after he'd announced his decision to resign. And the Council's procedures are in the spotlight over the way it dealt with a number of crab apple trees planted on the town's main street. The Tour of Southland, won by Englishman Dan Gardner, has been heralded a great success. And Che will also talk about the death of long-serving Southland Times editor and Dominion chief reporter Fred Tulett. He had 50 years in journalism and was considered a "true newspaper man".
