Merry Christ­mas

Waihi Leader - - News -

Christ­mas is rapidly ap­proach­ing and it is al­ways a time to re­flect on what is ahead of us. I read with some con­cern the re­port on the at­tack on the fire­fight­ers at Waihi Beach over the week­end and thought how self­lessly our emer­gency crews serve the pub­lic. Hope­fully this hol­i­day pe­riod will not be a ‘Silly Sea­son’ and our teams will be safe and ap­pre­ci­ated as they sup­port the com­mu­nity.

Safety and sup­port have been key is­sues in deal­ing with the as­bestos in our Op Shop build­ing. The safety of our vol­un­teers and cus­tomers has been para­mount and we are pleased that the con­trac­tors are work­ing on the build­ing re­pairs this week. The land­lord has been very sup­port­ive and has done all in his power to get the work un­der­way. We don’t have a date for re-open­ing yet but it shouldn’t be too long. Look­ing for­ward to the hol­i­day pe­riod we will be hold­ing a Quiz Night at the Waihi Beach RSA on Fri­day 11 Jan­uary. Pen­cil this in your di­ary and come and join us for a Fun Night.

We wish ev­ery­one a Happy and Safe Hol­i­day Sea­son.
