Team cel­e­brates all things Mata­mata

Matamata Chronicle - - Welcome To Matamata -

If you have just moved to Mata­mata – wel­come.

If you’re a long stand­ing res­i­dent – nice to still have you around.

As your com­mu­nity pa­per I hope that, as you read each week, you will cel­e­brate with us all things Mata­mata.

To give you a lit­tle bit of an in­sight as to who we are, the Chron­i­cle is part of Fair­fax Me­dia, which in­cludes 11 com­mu­nity news­pa­pers in the great Waikato catch­ment area, as well as the Waikato Times.

We em­ploy seven full time staff (you will see our faces on the back page of this Wel­come to Mata­mata fea­ture) who are all com­mit­ted to bring­ing you the best pa­per we can each week.

We, like you, are part of the com­mu­nity, shop­ping lo­cally, with our chil­dren at­tend­ing school here and sup­port­ing lo­cal events and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

As a busi­ness, we know that we have to change with our en­vi­ron­ment.

Peo­ple’s needs and wants change, new habits are formed, that is why we have em­braced and added the dig­i­tal for­mat to our printed form. By that I mean, while you can still en­joy pop­ping out to the let­ter box and grab­bing your copy of the Chron­i­cle, you can now read us on­line, join us on Face­book or give us a tweet on twit­ter.

We want our com­mu­nity to en­joy, en­gage, par­tic­i­pate and com­mu­ni­cate with us how ever they choose.

That is what a com­mu­nity pa­per is all about.

With that said, my door is al­ways open to any­one who wants to pop in for a cuppa and a chat.
