Country Life for 8 January 2010
A selection of highlights from 2009 - Stephen Mattock's workplace is the scenic Rangitikei river. He's a fishing and river guide and he and his wife Trudi welcome hundreds of guests a year to their remote rural lodge. Blacksmith artist Peter Lazlo and his artist wife Rosie arrived in New Zealand a couple of years ago after selling their small farm in eastern France. They've settled on a block of native bush overlooking the ocean on the West Coast and they plan to turn it into an eco-friendly centre for fellow artists.
