Living in an isolated community like Ōhura presents unique challenges, but the people here are resilient, creative, and hard-working. Sophie Moore-Stockbridge and Justin Stockbridge talk about the challenges but also opportunities to thrive in a remote area such as Ōhura. The annual Ohura APH&I show is a testament to this spirit of community, as families gather to celebrate their shared rural way of life and build relationship to create a stronger community in a place where it literally takes a village to thrive. The show is particularly important for the children of the community, who represent the future of Ōhura. By investing in the next generation, the community ensures that it will continue to thrive for years to come. Ōhura is such a beautiful part of Aotearoa with it’s people at the heart of it.
