Fol­low­ing the re­lease of

and the open­ing of the i-SITE Gate­house, the Mata­mata Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion is in­vest­ing in mak­ing vis­i­tors to Mata­mata feel wel­come.

In a joint ven­ture with the Mata­mata Com­mu­nity Board, the as­so­ci­a­tion has had metal brack­ets at­tached to street­lights along Broad­way, in or­der to hang flags along the main stretch.

The cur­rent flags read, ‘‘Wel­come to Mata­mata,’’ and as­so­ci­a­tion man­ager Sue Whit­ing said the brack­ets would be avail­able to ad­ver­tise lo­cal events.

Both the as­so­ci­a­tion and the board were ‘‘thrilled’’ with how the flags turned out, she said.
