Cen­tral’s cry:

Central Otago Mirror - - CENTRAL FEATURES -

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.
