There's mahi to be done but the aroha flows in the 100th marae renovation of this feel good makeover series. The team of regulars, including hosts Te Ori Paki and Ria Hall, landscape designer David Clayton-Greene and builder Hare Anneff, meet a huge team of community workers in Martinborough all ready to give Hau Ariki marae a makeover. It's a time of beginnings and endings — kuia Kurawari Panere sheds happy tears when she sees whakairo (carvings) made by her late husband get pride of place at the newly renovated marae, and Anneff downs tools on his last episode.
I love being Māori. I love being around Māori. I love my co-workers ... that's why the kaupapa's lasted so long.– Builder Hare Anneff can't hide his emotions on his last Marae DIY episode
