De­signer vis­its site

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Our Gate­house de­signer and Lord of the Rings Os­car-win­ning (I love that bit) pro­duc­tion de­signer, Dan Hen­nah, came to visit on Wed­nes­day and is im­pressed with the progress.

He promised to come back for the Gate­house open­ing.

We have put Dan’s Gate­house de­sign on the front cover of our 2012- 2013 Mata­mata Community Direc­tory.

I am en­joy­ing the 6.30am starts to let the boys in to the build­ing to hook up to power. You can get a lot of work done be­tween 6.30 and 9am.

Dar­ren Roa and his boys are work­ing on the win­dows and the roof line is very ap­par­ent now.

The boys did take time off on Thurs­day to meet Kim­ber­ley Cross­man, ex- Short­land Street ac­tor. Kim­ber­ley will be one of our MCs at the ‘‘Party Field’ on Novem­ber 29.

The brick guys are work­ing with the spe­cially-made con­crete bricks.

You will soon see their work above the hoard­ings.

Oh, and Di Rom­ley did come back to clean more win­dows. This time she brought Bruce (on his day off) and got him out on the scaf­fold­ing to do the out­side of the win­dows.

The win­dows will soon be cov­ered with what I can only de­scribe as old­style wig­gly-look­ing glass, so I am en­joy­ing the view from my spark­ing clean win­dows while I can.

If you have driven past the i-SITE you would have no­ticed the Gate­house is re­ally start­ing to take shape.
