FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

So you won’t have to put up with me for much longer.

On Mon­day Lawrence Gullery will start his role as Cen­tral Waikato news di­rec­tor and will be tak­ing over the reigns of the Mata­mata Chron­i­cle.

Fair­fax’s com­mu­nity pa­pers have just un­der­gone a massive change to make them more dig­i­tally fo­cused, as is the way of the world.

With this change has come the dis­es­tab­lish­ment of edi­tors for each com­mu­nity pa­per.

In­stead, news direc­tors have been cre­ated to over­see a wider geo­graphic area.

Lawrence will over­see the cen­tral re­gion which in­cludes Mata­mata-Pi­ako, Cam­bridge and Hamil­ton.

His job is to en­sure your com­mu­nity pa­per is still filled with all the news you need to know about, but also to make sure you can find your lo­cal news easier on­line and on so­cial me­dia.

Soon you’ll be able to find all your Mata­mata news eas­ily via Neigh­bourly. So if you haevn’t signed up yet, now is the time.
