Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Putting heart and soul into the Totara Lodge Hotel has extra meaning for Jeremy and Mooch Williams. The couple's involvement is largely thanks to Mr Williams' pacemaker; installed a couple of years ago. Mr Williams, then 32, had passed out several times after experiencing pain, and doctors thought it was due to a low pain threshhold. About two years ago he col- lapsed in the bathroom twice and an ambulance was called. The second time his wife could not get a pulse and he briefly stopped breathing. Ambulance staff sat him up but he collapsed again so they took him to hospital. He was surprised to be taken to cardiac care and told his heart had an electrical fault which occasionally meant it forgot what it should be doing. He was fitted with a pacemaker and with a new lease on life was back at work three days later. His work was at Smith the Grocer in the Old Bank Arcade in Wellington and his boss was Adam Cunningham. When Mr Cunningham and partner Tamara Jane were given the opportunity to buy the Totara Lodge Hotel they invited the Wil- liams' to join them as partners. They took over last winter and have spent the year getting to know the community and a feel for what locals want. Tomorrow the new name for the Totara Lodge Carvery will be unveiled. Doors will reopen on Friday with an emphasis on family-friendly. The accommodation side of the business, in the same building, will retain the Totara Lodge name. The business is part of the Vil- lage Accommodation brand which is part-owned by Mr Cunningham. The Williams were hesitant to move here from Johnsonville but now love Upper Hutt. They enjoy its flat location, love the weather, and say it is great for their two children: Felix, 2, and Otis, 4 months. Mr Williams grew up in rural Britain, where he joined the hotel trade. He met his future wife, a Kiwi teacher, when he worked in a village pub and employed her as a waitress.
