My choice of video from a week's work at Hawke's Bay Today ☺
This week was all about the fires and Art Deco

All aboard for Hastings (video)
For the first time in many years, the RM-31 Vintage Railcar ran shuttles from the old Napier Railway Station to Hastings and return, part of the Tremains Art Deco Festival.
Links to some of my other videos:
|At least one house burnt down. Fire Service, Hastings District Council Volunteer Rural Fire Forces and helicopters fight a grass and pine forest fire between Waimarama Rd and Tukituki Rd, near Havelock North.|
A state of emergency has been declared for the Hastings District as fires fanned by strong winds continue to burn across the region, claiming one house at Waimarama Rd.
(This was a video of footage I got from Te Mata Peak and from a chopper (someone's got to do it) and from a press conference at Hastings District Council. Alex Robertson from the New Zealand Herald put it together for me.)

Boaters and furs were to the fore at Sileni Estates Winery as CEO Nigel Avery launched Art Deco Sparkling, a limited edition bubbly.
