Quil­ters patch in a lot of fun

Matamata Chronicle - - Welcome To Matamata - By TERESA HAT­TAN

There are plenty of groups to join in Mata­mata cov­er­ing a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties. One of them, the Kere­one Quil­ters and Krafters, is based out of the Kere­one Hall on Set­tle­ment Rd. Orig­i­nal found­ing mem­ber Hellen Bor­ring­ton, from Waitoa, said she felt the area ‘‘needed some­thing’’.

The group is all about help­ing each other. Gath­er­ings are filled with laugh­ter and jokes are bandied about on a regular ba­sis. All of the cur­rent mem­bers at­tend be­cause it’s a lot of fun. They also hold the odd quilt­ing week­end or group out­ing. Mem­bers don’t just at­tend ses­sions, which are held the first and third Tues­day of the month, for their own ben­e­fit. The group also knits for pre­ma­ture ba­bies and sev­eral other causes and fam­i­lies.

The Kere­one Quil­ters and Krafters meet from 9am-2.30pm.

A list of clubs and or­gan­i­sa­tions can be found in the Mata­mata-Pi­ako A-Z busi­ness di­rec­tory. There are also a num­ber of groups younger peo­ple can join, in­clud­ing the Mata­mata Gym Club. Turn to page 42 to learn more about this club.
