SEEK­ING WHITE TED­DIES

Matamata Chronicle - - Conversations - Jackie Grinder, Mata­mata B.A Mud­ford, Mata­mata

Bar­bara and I are busy sewing clothes for 40 white Santa bears. We want to send 20 to Ron­ald McDon­ald House in Auck­land and 20 to Waikato Hos­pi­tal. What a great start to 2016.

We won­der if op shops have any white bears still sit­ting on their shelves which they would like to do­nate for th­ese chil­dren. Bears can be left at the Dryclean­ers.

Many thanks, sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour and re­port it. Kaimai tun­nel ... would be a huge boost for the Mata­mata re­gion and with in­creas­ing vol­ume of traf­fic be­tween Waikato and Tau­ranga it needs se­ri­ous thought. – Ky­ron Nickalls Which way would they go to get to the tun­nel we don’t want them to leave Mata­mata high and dry it is such a buzzing lit­tle town. – Shar­ron Pratt HAVE YOUR SAY: Let­ters should not ex­ceed 250 words and must have full name, res­i­den­tial ad­dress and phone num­ber.
