Mary-anne Scott lives in Havelock North but her heart lives in Mahia. It’s a magical place that she goes to as often as possible. Mary-anne’s great-grandparents and grandparents had connections to Mahia and her parents even got engaged while on holiday there. The tradition has continued with Mary-anne and Paul’s sons and their families making regular trips there too.
