Wallet reunited with grateful owner
I went shopping at New World and it was great until I decided to go to the post office.
It was there I discovered my wallet was not in my handbag.
After a visit to the bank and the police station, I decided to go home, have a cup of tea and wait.
While doing this, my phone rang and it was the call I wanted.
Mrs Tuhakaraina was phoning me to say she was at my house with my wallet; what a lovely honest lady. After three big hugs and a gift, she left.
I thank her and her grandson for seeing it on the road and returning it to me so quickly. I am so very grateful.
A small number of volunteers have given their time and money to plant and care for the daffodils you now see in glorious displays in our various public parks and drives. They are for everyone to enjoy. Thank you, we say to all the fine volunteers.
Also, a big thank you to those who resist the urge to pick the daffodils.
We appreciate all who endeavour to keep Matamata beautiful.
