Pohlen a wonderful community asset
Spending two weeks in Pohlen Hospital, made me really realise what a wonderful community asset we have here in Matamata.
I would like to sincerely thank the staff including the cooks for the wonderful care they gave to me during my stay.
Thank you their children); very elderly people struggling to walk against the wind but making the effort to stop and wrestle the money from the bottom of bags; fresh faced young people who stop and chat about their Nana or Pop who has dementia and how sad it makes them.
Our Annual Appeal is a timely reminder of the good in humankind.
All money raised will be used wisely to provide support to those in our community who are affected by Dementia.
Please remember that Alzheimers Waikato can be contacted on 0800 004 001 if you require support /advice.
Once again our grateful thanks to you all. were put out on Monday, Tuesday and Friday.
Wrong, wrong, wrong!!
In a town where a large number of people cannot get their heads around the concept of washing out plastic bottles, squashing them and leaving the tops off.
Then perhaps all the new information was a bit much . . . we will just do what the neighbours do!
Anyway Kiwis do not waste time reading instructions!
Maybe it is what the handbook did NOT say that helped cause confusion such as:
Rubbish is still collected every week on Friday in Matamata.
Your bottle crate now goes out fortnightly, instead of weekly and on the same day as the wheelie bin.
The list of what does not go in the wheelie bin includes glass.
How close to the kerb to place the wheelie bin and how much extra crates cost.
The statement on the back cover of the handbook that ‘‘It’s all inside’’ is a lie.
They say change does not come easy!
So, while I feel the handbook could have been better, it would seem that anyone caught out could perhaps have used their brains better. Yours in garbage. I am sure it will all work itself out.
