FROM THE EDITOR
After a short break the KapiMana News staff are back in the office and ready for the new year.
This week we start off with a great issue that features our two New Year Honours List recipients.
Caroline Herewini and Gaylene Sciascia have both been rightly honoured for the work they do in our community.
The honours list is often filled with Government workers, Olympians, and others already in the public eye.
It is rare for Porirua people to feature in the national awards, despite the great unsung heroes we have here.
I would encourage people to look up the nomination process for the Queen’s Birthday Honours - let’s get more of our heroes recognised on the national stage.
