Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

The last pa­per of the year. And boy, what a year it’s been.

I’ve felt priv­i­leged to be part of the Mata­mata com­mu­nity in 2015.

We have all seen some great highs and some great lows.

The year started off with one of our own be­ing awarded an ONZM. We will soon see if any­one else will be recog­nised with sim­i­lar hon­ours over the hol­i­day pe­riod. The year then quickly pro­gressed and I found my­self at­tend­ing a large num­ber of school events, club events and sports matches to name but a few.

It is a real thrill to be at the pulse of such a thriv­ing com­mu­nity. I take such joy and hap­pi­ness from your suc­cesses and com­mis­er­ate with you in your times of trou­ble.

The Mata­mata Chron­i­cle will be tak­ing a short break be­fore re­turn­ing to your let­ter­box on Jan­uary 13.

Make sure you keep us in the loop with what 2016 will bring for you. We can’t wait to con­tinue to tell your sto­ries.

Please stay safe and we’ll see you in the New Year.
