Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

Well hello every­one.

As you all know Pet­rice left us last week to head off on an over­seas ad­ven­ture, so un­til your new ed­i­tor starts in a few weeks you are stuck with me.

Firstly I’d like to wel­come all the new farm­ers to the Mata­mata district.

This edi­tion of the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle is es­pe­cially for you and from pages 14 to 31 you will find lots of use­ful in­for­ma­tion in our Wel­come to the District fea­ture to get you started.

We’ve listed the must see places to visit, along with use­ful in­for­ma­tion on school­ing.

You will also find spe­cial wel­comes from the mayor and lo­cal MP, as well as your lo­cal fire of­fi­cers and po­lice. So en­joy the read. On satur­day many of you marched for Moko in a bid to push the Gov­ern­ment to in­tro­duce harsher laws against child abuse.

I’d like to thank each and every­one of you for that.

It’s great that peo­ple are stand­ing-up and say­ing ‘enough is enough’’.

Ni­cola Brennan-Tu­para
