Ruapehu Press - - Your Local News - Daniel Hutchin­son

It is nice to see some good com­ing out of the old Kakahi School.

Los­ing a so­cial hub like that can be pretty hard on a small vil­lage, so it is great to see lo­cal res­i­dents mak­ing some use out of the in­fra­struc­ture left be­hind.

Hope­fully they will get the sup­port of the wider Ruapehu re­gion as well to make it hap­pen. Ideas need to be en­cour­aged and backed, to en­sure peo­ple keep on hav­ing them.

The same ap­plies to the Waimarino Rest Home Trust on page 3. Some­times you have to get cre­ative to get things done and the trust’s Waimarino Film So­ci­ety fits that bill.

All it needs now is the sup­port of the wider com­mu­nity and it will be a dou­ble suc­cess - a fun and so­cial way to raise money.

In to­day’s pa­per we also cel­e­brate along­side the Tau­marunui High School graduates and wish them all the best in their fu­ture en­deav­ours. See pages 6 and 7 for more.

Also, it would be great to see more peo­ple mak­ing use of our Con­ver­sa­tions page for let­ters, col­umns etc. Gen­eral in­quiries: 07 895 5841, Editor: Daniel Hutchin­son, 027 809 6854 or email: daniel.hutchin­son@fair­fax­me­, News: reporter Frances Fer­gu­son: 027 520 7376 or frances.fer­gu­son@fair­fax­me­, Clas­si­fied Ad­ver­tis­ing: 0800 800 373 or 07 895 5841, Dis­play and non-clas­si­fied ad­ver­tis­ing: 027 497 9416, Me­dia sales con­sul­tant: Alice Cut­ler, 027 497 9416 alice.cut­ler@fair­fax­me­, Missed de­liv­er­ies: 0800 339 000 or fixmy­de­liv­, FACE­BOOK: face­­ape­hu­press WEB­SITE: ru­ape­hu­ Postal ad­dress: PO Box 205, Taupo
