FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Kapi-Mana News - - FRONT PAGE - Joseph Romanos

We hope you enjoy our re­view is­sue. When we pe­rused this year’s pa­pers, we were amazed by how much hap­pened in 2015.

A lot goes on in Porirua and Tawa any­way – fes­ti­vals, pa­rades, sport, ex­hi­bi­tions and so on. But this year seemed even busier than nor­mal, with the Gal­lipoli cen­te­nary, floods and Porirua’s 50th cel­e­bra­tions all com­mand­ing at­ten­tion.

There were con­tro­ver­sies, such as the smell com­ing from Spicer Land­fill, rental hous­ing and un­pop­u­lar city coun­cil de­ci­sions. And there were peo­ple to be proud of, our lo­cal he­roes. We hope we’ve cov­ered them all off in this is­sue.

We thank you, our read­ers, for your feed­back in our let­ters col­umns and on Face­book, and for suggest­ing sto­ries we might pub­lish.

It’s been a busy year. Stay safe and enjoy your hol­i­day break and let’s all re­turn fresh and ea­ger in 2016. Our first is­sue of the new year will be in your mail­boxes on Jan­uary 12.
