So cool... Loving families, great environment for kids, communities that play together, totally non-pretentious people, so much that I love about small town NZ

Loved seeing the little girl eating a bowl of porridge and Mum preparing a cut lunch for her to take to school. What happened to those days?

"You obviously haven't had one yet, but you'll know when you see it."

"I'll remember to order it next time I go to Cobb n' Co"

I laughed 'til I cried.

This is not an accurate picture of Wainui. There are many different faces of Wainui and unfortunately your pick of families only represent a small part of the population. The League Club was awesome but maybe you shouldve dug deeper and come on a day where most of the population is there. The schools wouldve been great to look at. There is also a high population of indigenous Maori / Pacific Island population that wouldve been wonderful to do a story about. Wainui was a fabulous place to grow up in and I have wonderful memories there!!!
