Matamata Chronicle - - Conversations - War­ren Har­vey, Wa­haroa

The Wa­haroa Hall is an as­set to our com­mu­nity.

It just needs bet­ter man­age­ment.

It is not ac­cept­able that the Me­mo­rial Hall has been de­com­mis­sioned, or has it?

Cur­rently a pe­ti­tion and Face­book page is run­ning to save our hall.

A sign has been erected to pro­mote aware­ness of the is­sue.

The orig­i­nal pur­pose for the land and build­ing is for so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and for the well-be­ing of our com­mu­nity as stated in the coun­cil man­date.

Sell­ing the hall breaches the orig­i­nal Kau­papa (which means the in­tent for which is was given).

To take away from an area that needs help, is, Mata­mata’s shame!
