FROM THE EDITOR

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

If my time in Mata­mata is go­ing to be any­thing like the past week then I amso ex­cited about this jour­ney that lies ahead!

What an in­cred­i­ble in­tro­duc­tion I have al­ready had thanks to the wel­com­ing arms of so many in this town.

This week kicks off my time as the editor of the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle af­ter spend­ing just un­der two years with the South Waikato News.

I know Teresa poured her heart and soul into this pa­per and you can be rest as­sured I will do the same.

We are dif­fer­ent peo­ple and will take dif­fer­ent ap­proaches but the one thing we have in com­mon is pas­sion.

Like Teresa, I too un­der­stand the role that a com­mu­nity news­pa­per plays in a small but thriv­ing town like Mata­mata.

I thor­oughly look for­ward to telling your sto­ries whether that means pro­mot­ing suc­cess, ex­pos­ing the truth or cel­e­brat­ing mile­stones.

Bring on 2016!
