FROM THE EDITOR

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Wel­come to your first Mata­mata Chron­i­cle of 2016. I hope you all had a lovely fes­tive sea­son and were able to spend time with fam­ily, friends and loved ones. I al­ways spend a bit of time at the start of each year re­flect­ing on the past 12 months. I also like to look for­ward to what the com­ing year will bring. I don’t set res­o­lu­tions as such, but I like to have a fo­cus. I hope you all get the chance to fo­cus on what is im­por­tant this year. Spend that ex­tra few min­utes with your chil­dren or take time out for your­selves. Once gone, we can never get those min­utes back. Be sure to trea­sure each and ev­ery one.

We find our­selves at the start of an­other busy year. The first few months es­pe­cially are jam-packed with plenty of fun events. You can find a num­ber of th­ese events on our What’s On page in­side this week’s pa­per. Be sure to have a good look so you don’t miss out on any­thing. 2016 is also a time for us to cel­e­brate here at the Chron­i­cle. This year your com­mu­nity pa­per turns 50. We’ll cer­tainly be do­ing some­thing to cel­e­brate such a huge mile­stone. - Teresa
