Cou­ples’ ul­ti­mate Have­lock af­fair

Havelock North Village Press - - News -

Welling­ton broth­ers Roy and Tim Grigor and their part­ners Sa­chini Wi­je­sek­era and Gabby Grigor were in Have­lock North this week for a $13,000 “Ul­ti­mate Week” pack­age.

They had their dad, Ian Grigor, to thank for the ex­pe­ri­ence af­ter he en­tered them in the com­pe­ti­tion on Face­book.

“Both dad and mum are great with so­cial me­dia. He told us we’d been en­tered in this this amaz­ing Ul­ti­mate Week prize in Have­lock North. When he re­ceived a Face­book mes­sage say­ing ‘con­grat­u­la­tions’ he was first a lit­tle hes­i­tant to open it, just in case it was spam, but quickly re­alised it was real and got straight on to the phone tell us.

“Our par­ents are as ex­cited as we are for win­ning and be­ing here in Have­lock North — it’s a on­cein-a-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We’ll def­i­nitely be bring­ing them back some fine ex­am­ples of Have­lock North food and wine while out shop­ping across the Vil­lage,” they said.

The young cou­ples stayed at Porters Ho­tel for their first two nights, sam­pling some of the best fare in lo­cal eater­ies.

They also en­joyed a visit to the Har­courts Hawke’s Bay Art Fes­ti­val.

Have­lock North Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Jane Mack­ersey said she was “proud” to show­case what Have­lock North had on of­fer.

The Ul­ti­mate Week had been made pos­si­ble through gen­er­ous spon­sor­ship and sup­port from Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion mem­bers for the $13,000 pack­age.
