Winners of lights tour
Two lucky entrants in this year’s Bayleys Christmas lights tour have won Mitre 10 vouchers. A number of locals have won prizes from the Where Are They From? competition and the Matamata Volunteer Fire Brigade competed in a recent competition.
The Matamata Fire Brigade competition team, from left, Lyndon Johns, Eddy Baukema, Dane Lowe, coach Martin Prescott and David Vuglar were competing against teams from throughout the Waikato in a competition based on time and gear handling to name a few. A total of nine runs were completed by the team.
