Kiwi bach

An old-school Kiwi bach on a reserve near Kaiteriteri has finally been pulled down – a victim of council rules.

The little blue bach in Tapu Bay was owned by Motueka stalwart, John Krammer, before he surrendered it two years ago. It was demolished last week marking the end for the controversial old holiday home.

Krammer, 86, said he didn’t know it was being pulled down until his daughter took him a photo to his home on Te Awhina Marae on Friday.

“I’m a little sad actually, but that’s the way the big ball bounces.”
