I was one of the many folk trapped in vehicles on the Kilmog/motorway
during the recent big snow fall. After being helped off the hill by
the superb Downers staff, many were directed to Waitati Hall to be
greeted by a friendly welcome, warm cuppa and even a movie! My stay
was only brief (about 3 hours) before we were moved on over the
motorway to Dunedin. Many with young families opted to stay
overnight at the hall or the marae. The wonderful community spirit
and true caring in our time of need was much appreciated. A big
thanks to all involved – what a great little community you have!
