Mayor’s Christ­mas mes­sage

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Christ­mas is just around the cor­ner and if you have not al­ready started your cel­e­bra­tions, no doubt you are look­ing for­ward to spend­ing time with your fam­ily and friends.

It has been an ex­cit­ing year for our district.

Just to name a few of the projects we have worked on – the Hau­raki Rail Trail (from Te Aroha to Paeroa) was com­pleted, the Mor­rinsville Heated Pool was up­graded and Mata­mata-Pi­ako District Coun­cil contributed to the new Mata­mata i-SITE Gate­house which was opened by John Key ear­lier this month.

I wel­come vis­i­tors to our district over the hol­i­day pe­riod. I am sure you will en­joy our hos­pi­tal­ity and re­spect our sur­round­ings. There are many things to see and do in our district and we hope you en­joy your stay.

So, as we cel­e­brate this hol­i­day sea­son, I hope you all have a chance to re­lax over the break.

Please also re­mem­ber your neigh­bours at this time of year, es­pe­cially the el­derly and those who live alone.

I wish you all a very happy Christ­mas and a peace­ful and pros­per­ous 2013.

Kevin Buck­ley, Mata­mata Food and Cloth­ing Bank co­or­di­na­tor Raewyn and Count­down duty man­ager Carmelle Pater­son.
