About Town

After the closing down of Weddel Kaiti local freezing workers showed that they have not just given up all hope. Thanks to the efforts of many caring people, some have found work out of town. The fighting spirit of Gisborne workers and their support network in the face of adversity shines out as an example to all.


These freezing workers travel to Wairoa 6 days a week leaving at 4-45am, returning 6-10pm.
