Matamata Chronicle - - Your Paper, Your Place -

A while ago the re­porters in our Cen­tral Waikato group, which in­cludes this pa­per, Pi­ako Post, Hamil­ton Press and Cam­bridge Edi­tion, be­gan work­ing a week­end ros­ter. We kicked this off to meet the de­mand for more cov­er­age of ac­tiv­i­ties on a Satur­day or Sun­day. In par­tic­u­lar, we were keen to cover sport as part of our fo­cus to bring read­ers more sto­ries on peo­ple be­com­ing ac­tive. We’re not spe­cial­ist sport re­porters and so from time-to-time we’ve asked clubs to pro­vide a report, and we’ll pro­vide the pho­tos. One par­tic­u­lar code which has grabbed at this op­por­tu­nity is bowls. Hin­uera, Rewa and Mata­mata bowls clubs have been par­tic­u­larly help­ful in pro­vid­ing easy to read re­ports on their clubs’ tour­na­ments and games. Oth­ers to pro­vide re­ports in­clude Hin­uera Cricket Club and the Mata­mata Swifts foot­ball club. We look for­ward to meet­ing more peo­ple out and about in the week­ends over the com­ing sum­mer.
