Matamata Chronicle editor Teresa Hattan
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,
