Grate­ful to all in­volved with flower fes­ti­val

Matamata Chronicle - - Opinion/news -

On be­half of the par­tic­i­pants and com­mit­tee of the Mata­mata Fes­ti­val of Flow­ers, I would like to ex­tend my sin­cere thanks for the won­der­ful sup­port from the peo­ple of Mata­mata and sur­round­ing ar­eas for our re­cent event at the Me­mo­rial Cen­tre.

To the busi­ness com­mu­nity, the Pub­lic Re­la­tions As­so­ci­a­tion and the Mata­mata-Pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil, our grate­ful thanks for your on­go­ing sup­port and en­cour­age­ment to pro­vide an event wor­thy of the huge num­ber of vis­i­tors who came to town to en­joy our form of art in con­junc­tion with the events on the street and at Firth Tower.

Thanks also to the Lions club for pro­vid­ing an easy flow with buses, the Mata­mata Chris­tian School, for pro­vid­ing out­stand­ing cater­ing, and the Cen­ten­nial Drive com­mit­tee mem­bers who were able to es­cort a large num­ber of peo­ple through this beau­ti­ful as­set of our town.

The at­ten­dance reached our ex­pec­ta­tions, the ‘‘wow’’ fac­tor was present in the flo­ral work and the pa­tience and co-op­er­a­tion of the town folk was amaz­ing.

Thank you. by briefly stop­ping the traf­fic and al­low­ing our vis­i­tors to take their trea­sured mem­o­ries of the Hob­biton Gate­house in safety.

We’d call th­ese peo­ple Hob­biton Pho­tog­ra­phy Am­bas­sadors and turn the prob­lem into a unique tourist at­trac­tion.

I’d be the first to ap­ply for the job should this sug­ges­tion be taken up but at nearly 2m tall I’d have to lie about my height.

There must be some­body out there of a lesser stature than this Hob­bit.
