The de­bate over the fu­ture of Headon Sta­dium con­tin­ues to gain mo­men­tum, with peo­ple on our Neigh­bourly plat­form tak­ing the chance to have their say. It’s ob­vi­ous peo­ple want more in­for­ma­tion on who uses the sta­dium and who does not use it any more, and why they don’t use it. Net­ball games, un­der the Thames Val­ley league, were moved to Te Aroha this sea­son be­cause of con­cerns about the state of the sta­dium. Other groups con­tin­ues to use it though, in­clud­ing up-com­ing games for fut­sal [In­door foot­ball] com­pe­ti­tions. Mata­mata-Pi­ako Mayor Jan Barnes has asked for the com­mu­nity to have its say on the mat­ter and as you will read on our Con­ver­sa­tions page this week, peo­ple have a lot of ques­tions they want raised. Stay­ing with sport, re­porter Rexine Hawes at­tended the an­nual Mata­mata-Pi­ako Sports Awards re­cently, or­gan­ised by Sport Waikato. You would have read her front page story on Toka Natua and Michelle Mon­tague, and we will pro­file more award win­ners over the com­ing weeks.
