FROM THE ED­I­TOR

Papakura Courier - - FRONT PAGE -

Kia ora koutou, We’ve got a great range of sto­ries in this week’s is­sue. On page 3, you can read about the fan­tas­tic work of the Well Women fa­cil­i­ta­tors help­ing moth­ers with post­na­tal de­pres­sion. On the same page we bid farewell to Fabri­cland. On page 5, you can learn more about a won­der­ful ini­tia­tive aimed at keep­ing kids warm over win­ter and make sure you read Ben Ross’ lat­est col­umn on page 7. In other news, this will be my last week as the ed­i­tor of the Pa­pakura Courier. From next week, the Eastern Courier’s cur­rent news direc­tor Phil Tay­lor will also be edit­ing this pub­li­ca­tion. Can I just say what a priv­i­lege it has been edit­ing this paper over the last 12 months and can I give a spe­cial thanks to our many read­ers for en­gag­ing with us over this pe­riod. I also want to ac­knowl­edge our re­porter Nigel Moffiet, who works tire­lessly to cover this area, and who will con­tinue to do so, but based from a new of­fice. Thank you for read­er­ship and I trust you’ll con­tinue to en­joy this fine pub­li­ca­tion un­der Phil’s lead­er­ship.

Nga mihi, Justin
