FROM THE EDITOR
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: email@example.com, News: reporter Frances Ferguson: 027 520 7376 or firstname.lastname@example.org, 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 email@example.com, Missed deliveries: 0800 339 000 or fixmydelivery.co.nz, FACEBOOK: facebook.com/ruapehupress WEBSITE: ruapehupress.co.nz Postal address: PO Box 205, Taupo
