Keeping afloat above the Manawatu River
Fri, 09 Nov 2012 7:02p.m.
The Manawatu Gorge is a remarkable piece of road, and a vital link between Hawkes Bay and the Manawatu.
It’s perched between two relatively unstable cliffs and sits precariously above the rapids of the Manawatu River.
Until recently it's been closed to traffic as workers cleared some 370,000 square metres of dirt and rock. The economy in nearby Woodville took a hammering.
But at a time when more and more people are finding themselves out of work, one business owner is determined not to join the unemployment stats.

Good on ya, keep up the good work. My biker mates and I love to stop for a snack and drink in your wonderful garden. Sad that you had such an unforeseen set back a few weeks into your new business. I guess it only made you stronger and more determined to make a go of it. Well done and thanks for your excellent service.
