FROM THE EDITOR
I know, I know. I keep threatening to leave, yet here I amstill putting the Matamata Chronicle together still.
This will be my last letter from the editor though I promise.
This Friday we will also farewell reporter Abby Brown who has been with the Chronicle for two years.
Abby is leaving us to move to the big smoke- Wellington - where she will join one of Fairfax’s other community papers The Hutt News.
I’d like to personally thank Abby for her hard work over the past two years and I wish her well for the future.
We will have a new reporter starting next week.
Just who it is will have to remain secret for now.
But I’m sure the community will welcome her as you have previous new reporters to the paper.
It’s been a pleasure being your temporary editor.
But now I’ll hand you over to Lawrence. Thanks Nicola
