Wal­let re­united with grate­ful owner

Matamata Chronicle - - News/opinion -

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.

Stalked beauty

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.
