I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.
Arts in the Park is one of Hāwera's most anticipated events and it is returning again to King Edward Park on Saturday 5 December 2020.

The kids zone will be filled with activities for the children to do including face painting, pony rides, and children's games
