Meet The People 1
And so begins a new series.....Meet The People - Ordinary and Extraordinary New Zealanders doing interesting things.
Wesley Golledge was just a university student looking for a part-time job to pay the bills when he applied to become a punter on Christchurch’s Avon River. Now, 18 years later, he owns the company (Punting on the Avon) and is still to get his history degree. “After my second week on the job I knew I’d found something I’d love doing,” he says. Keen to expand his fleet to ten boats, Wesley wants to cement the punting operation as one of Christchurch’s iconic tourist attractions. www.punting.co.nz
