FROM THE EDI­TOR

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

I come with some good and bad news.

From next week we will have a new re­porter with us at the South Waikato News.

Luke Kirkeby, cur­rently at the Taupo Times, will be join­ing the South Waikato team on Mon­day

Luke brings with him years of ex­pe­ri­ence re­port­ing in the Taupo area, cov­er­ing an ar­ray of sto­ries and rounds in­clud­ing coun­cil, ed­u­ca­tion and emer­gency ser­vices.

I’m sure you will join me in con­grat­u­lat­ing Luke on get­ting the job and I know he’s keen to get out there and start meet­ing you all.

At the same time next week, will will be say­ing farewell to cur­rent re­porter Frances Fer­gu­son who I know many of you have got­ten to know quite well in year she has been at the South Waikato News.

Frances’ last day will be Fri­day, June 17 and I know know you will all join me in wish­ing her the best for the fu­ture.

I’d like to pub­licly thank her for all her hard work and ded­i­ca­tion to the job.
