The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - - Lisa Hous­ton

Well, that’s it for The Tri­bune for 2016 and what a year it has been for the Palmer­ston North com­mu­nity.

We’ve gone through lo­cal govern­ment elec­tions, wel­com­ing back our mayor Grant Smith and some new city coun­cil­lors, we’ve seen big plans for a city makeover and we’ve seen a boost in our busi­ness com­mu­nity.

There’s been up­roar over plans to change the front of the All Saints Church and neigh­bours com­ing to­gether to sup­port each other through mul­ti­ple bur­glar­ies and lonely times.

We’ve hung out with di­nosaurs and painted rocks, and over­all it’s been an ex­cit­ing year.

These are just some of the high­lights.

I hope you all have a very merry and joy­ful Christ­mas and a bright and happy New Year. The

Tri­bune will be back in your let­ter­box for 2017 on Jan­uary 11. Just a re­minder the Manawatu

Stan­dard of­fice will be closed from Fri­day, De­cem­ber 23 at 1pm and will re­open on Jan­uary 4.
