Hei te kōrero a Julie Gardyne o Te kaunihera o Whakatane he tironga anamata tā te Kaunihera kia whakatipu i te ohanga o te tāone o Whakatāne. Tēra ngā whenua e rua kei te pupuri tonu a Chris rāua ko Shona Timmins me te kōrero a Chris Timmins kei te mōhio ia e hiahia ana Te Kaunihera o Whakatane kia kotahi ai to rāua waihangatanga.
