Matamata Chronicle - - Your Local News -

Two key col­umns from lead­ers in our com­mu­nity fea­ture in this week’s Chron­i­cle. The first is from one of the Mata­mata ward coun­cil­lors for the Mata­mataPi­ako District Coun­cil, James Sains­bury (page 6). James leads on from last week’s colum­nist Gord Ste­wart, hit­ting on top­ics around re­cy­cling and bet­ter waste man­age­ment for the district. He speaks about the value of sort­ing waste, de­ter­min­ing which can be re­cy­cled and which may not. He also goes over the sav­ings which could be made by di­vert­ing waste such as glass, tin cans, plas­tics and paper. And over the next few weeks we will be help­ing to pro­mote the Kiwi Bot­tle Drive and a spe­cial campaign to en­cour­age a neigh­bour­ing MPto sup­port it. From civic mat­ters to sport. Sport Waikato’s Lou Beer talks about the value of sup­port­ing those who vol­un­teer their time to be ref­er­ees and coaches. She points out win­ter sports are head­ing to­wards semi­fi­nals and fi­nals now, when the work of vol­un­teers in sport be­comes even more valu­able. We hope you en­joy this week’s paper.
