Busy days in win­ter chill

Waitaki Herald - - NEWS -

Sun­day was the short­est day of the year.

That doesn’t sound right – it seems to be get­ting colder, not warmer. And there still seems to be so much left of the year.

The weeks, how­ever, seem to be get­ting busier.

Last week I at­tended the re- en­act­ment of the sign­ing of the Magna Carta, a char­ter signed in Eng­land in 1215 that is still the ba­sis of com­mon law to­day. See the story on page 8.

There is a story about Peter Bond who has been em­ployed as an ar­chiv­ist at Waitaki Boys’ High School. I also caught up with the North Otago Com­mu­nity Hos­pice to see how fundrais­ing for a new hos­pice hub is com­ing along.

We have some photos of the new Exe Street Craft Fair that ran for the first time on the week­end. It was good to hear from or­gan­iser Wayne Pope this week that the fair had at­tracted more stall­hold­ers than they’d an­tic­i­pated. Have a good week
