Gate­house ad­vances to next phase

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Stage 2 has started!

The Mata­mata Pub­lic Re­la­tions As­so­ci­a­tion (PRA) com­mit­tee has done a lot of plan­ning and talk­ing about our Gate­house ex­ten­sion and the pro­ject is fi­nally un­der­way.

Dar­ren Roa and his boys, Chris, James and Rob turned up on Mon­day Au­gust 26 as planned and things are mov­ing quickly.

Due to Traf­fic Man­age­ment Plan (TMP) re­quire­ments we have had to take up a cou­ple of car parks in the He­tana St car park to give the boys space to work.

A slight change to the exit, which is stip­u­lated on the TMP is to en­sure we don’t cause any prob­lems for those of you us­ing the car park.

It ap­pears to be work­ing well.

Our Con­tri­bu­tions Book has ar­rived. The book has been made by an ar­ti­san book­maker and it’s beau­ti­ful.

Ev­ery­one who con­trib­utes to the Gate­house will have their name en­tered into the book which will be an im­por­tant part of the PRA’s his­tory.

Do­na­tions are start­ing to come in and we are grate­ful for each con­tri­bu­tion.

I would love to hear from some­one who is a cal­ligra- pher who can pro­vide their ex­per­tise to write up the book.

We be­lieve the Gate­house is an as­set for our com­mu­nity and while we are work­ing so hard to make this pro­ject work, some mis­er­able per­son came by on Fri­day night and broke three Gate­house win­dows.

Makes you won­der why some­one would do that. Never fear, we have a cam- era aimed at the build­ing, and when we find them, they will pay!
