Alive in Arrowtown

Sonia Yee explores Arrowtown to find out what holds this Otago community together, and what makes it so special. And there's no better time to be there than during the annual Autumn Festival which is celebrating its 25th year.

Of course, people make a place, and this town is no exception. Along the way, Sonia meets up with Holly Hargreaves-a designer of upholstered art, and her father- a silver smith. Both are passionate about the town and its history, and they're lucky enough to have some of it in their own back yard.
