Mata­mata Chron­i­cle ed­i­tor Teresa Hat­tan

Matamata Chronicle - - Happy New Year -

What a year it’s been. As I start to think about my Christ­mas hol­i­day, I also like to re­flect on the past year. It’s been a busy one, as I’m sure it has for most in Mata­mata.

A lot has changed in my life since this time last year. I’ve changed jobs, I got en­gaged to the most won­der­ful man and met a whole bunch of friendly and car­ing peo­ple.

I hope ev­ery­one has the chance to take stock this fes­tive sea­son. I’m sure we can all ap­pre­ci­ate what we have. Spend time with friends and fam­ily. Visit those close to you who are on their own. Brighten your own lives by spread­ing a lit­tle bit of joy this Christ­mas.

It’s been a big year in terms of bring­ing you the news. Both Abby and I have thor­oughly en­joyed the past six months meet­ing you all. We look for­ward to 2015 when we get to see you all again while we con­tinue to bring you the sto­ries from our com­mu­nity.

Best wishes this Christ­mas,
