Below is the town cry Paddy-Ann Pemberton wrote especially for her induction ceremony at the Central Otago District Council chambers last week. Oyez ! Oyez ! Oyez! A world of difference is what is encountered when you enter the stunningly beautiful District of Central Otago. A region that embraces and celebrates four distinct seasons, with blossom, thyme and food festivals, alongside music and sporting events in abundance. Our world-renowned wines and rail trail are unsurpassed. A region proud of its history and culture that is embraced by inhabitants and visitors alike. Our educational opportunities are to be envied. Farming from the high country to the plains, beef, sheep, fruit or vines epitomise all that is good from the land. The varied landscape, immortalised on canvas and captured by myriads of photographers, celebrate Central Otago, from the Teviot Valley to the Lindis, Queensbury, to the Maniototo with Roxburgh, Alexandra, Cromwell and Clyde to name but a few of our communities as a place of discovery, lifestyle and enterprise. God Bless our World of Difference. God save the Queen.
