One year down and another year and a bit to go.

A year ago this month strengthening work began on the grand old Hawke's Bay Opera House, after 80 percent of submissions to the Hastings District Council wanted the building to be reopened.

The woman overseeing the multi-million dollar strengthening work is Megan Peacock-Coyle who was born and bred in the region and worked at the Opera House in a variety of roles before heading away for a few years.. She talks to Lynn Freeman about the progress on the historic building.
