Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

There isn’t re­ally a way to beat around the bush with this, my last ‘‘let­ter’’ as edi­tor of the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle. I’m mov­ing on to a new chal­lenge in com­mu­ni­ca­tions at Waikato District Coun­cil this week. So it with much sad­ness that I bid farewell to you, the fan­tas­tic Mata­mata com­mu­nity.

This town is re­ally some­thing spe­cial and will al­ways hold a spe­cial place in my heart. What makes it so spe­cial is the fan­tas­tic peo­ple who live here.

Ev­ery per­son I have had the priv­i­lege of meet­ing over the past year and a half has had an im­pact on my life. I have made great friends and have had the op­por­tu­nity to tell amaz­ing sto­ries. For this I thank you all.

Now, I prom­ise I won’t be a stranger. I’ll be back to get mar­ried in just a few short months.

In ex­cit­ing news, re­plac­ing me is the won­der­ful Pet­rice Tar­rant. She has been the edi­tor of South Waikato News for the past two years and I’m sure you will wel­come her with open arms, just like you did for me.
