Over 6000 braved the elements to visit the annual Sustainable Home and Garden Show held at the Kāpiti Primary School in Paraparaumu.
Special guest Te Radar was a popular attraction among the 80 exhibitors at the two day show.
One of the popular stalls was the Save Kāpiti display which featured the newly released DVD of locally made documentary movie Through the Heart which focuses on the proposed expressway through Kāpiti.
The films Director Bos O’Sullivan said he was greatly heartened by the public response.
“It is becoming increasingly clear to the public that this road is not a done deal,” said Mr O’Sullivan.
“We had large numbers of visitors come to the stall and over 100 copies of the movie were sold. We gave a copy to Te Radar and he was very interested and wanted more information about our website.”
Mr O’Sullivan said the film was now generally available and it can be purchased by visiting the website www.throughtheheart.co.nz
