Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

I love my job.

Well, this week I def­i­nitely loved my job more than nor­mal.

How many times can you say that you were in­spired by both a 10-year-old foot­baller and a cou­ple run­ning a bed and break­fast?

It is a pretty spe­cial job, even if it’s not the best pay­ing!

There are so many is­sues that the world, and our coun­try, is deal­ing with at the mo­ment – the TPPA, flag ref­er­en­dums, fluoride, 1080 are just a few, but when you are in touch with your own com­mu­nity there’s no es­cap­ing the pos­i­tiv­ity.

Peo­ple like Harry Chittick are the peo­ple that make the world go around.

He trag­i­cally lost his mother 18 months ago but do you think that stopped the 10-year-old from get­ting on with life? Def­i­nitely not. And that’s what a place like Mata­mata breeds and it’s just so heart-warm­ing to be able to cel­e­brate that kind of pas­sion and zest for life.
