Heartland - Pātea

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1994

When the works closed we tried to buy some of the buildings, and they wouldn't sell to us. Ridiculous. We wanted to use the cafeteria and dismantle it and take it up and put it under the canoe for our town hall, because we don't have one.
– Dalvanius Prime
I would say really it's been a benefit to Patea because the children here now know they've got to go to secondary school and really knuckle down and get into their studies, because they can't ... come down here when they're 15 and get a man's wage.
– Rudi Milesi, director of the Poi-E musical, on the closure of the freezing works
