SPRAY­ING UN­HEALTHY

Matamata Chronicle - - Conversations - Brid­get Gill, Mata­mata Sally Jenk­ins, Mata­mata

In re­ply to a re­cent let­ter to the Chron­i­cle re spray­ing of crops close to houses, join us at the north­ern end of Tawari Street to­day, as the onion crop is col­lected. Af­ter months of (dan­ger­ous to res­i­dents) spray­ing sev­eral times a week, the area is now get­ting cov­ered in the un­healthy dust. As it lingers in the air over a wide­spread area, once the ma­chin­ery has passed by. This ar­gu­ment will no doubt con­tinue as it has for over twenty years. How­ever the coun­cil I am sure could in­ter­ject with a by law that does not per­mit this prac­tice in such close prox­im­ity to res­i­den­tial dwellings. most im­por­tantly, the peo­ple who gave up their time to come along and work hard in the kitchen, serve the food, and en­ter­tain our guests and do what was re­quired of them to en­sure that this cel­e­bra­tion of Christ­mas was such a suc­cess.

A huge thank you and very happy new year.

With grate­ful thanks.
