A hut with a view

Picture by Rebecca Grunwell

Alex Keogh, 11, Olive Bunbury, 4, and Ethan Keogh, 10, had fun building a seaside hut at Waikanae Beach yesterday.

What might look like a huge mess to others, was a treasure trove of building materials for this construction team.

The city beaches are covered in driftwood, large logs, small trees and all sorts of other stuff washed ashore after two floods hit the region in the space of a week.

Gisborne District Council has said the beach will be cleaned up at the end of winter.
