Editor’s Note
As announced in last month’s
Matters
, with this edition we say goodbye to Liz Clark, our stalwart editor of the last four years or so. Liz has wisely decided that it’s time to take a break from the monthly routine of chasing copy and battling with printers, to concentrate on some of her other interests — such as helping to save the Zion Wildlife Park … and working on a number of other publications (the words ‘glutton’ and ‘punishment’ come to mind). I’m sure you’ll join me in a hearty vote of thanks for her efforts over the years, and wish her well for the future. Thankfully, she’ll still be down the road to help offer advice and bail me out when I get stuck! As always when a new editor takes over, I won’t be able to resist doing a little tinkering with the
Matters
 as time goes on. The aim of this will clearly be to make it better, not worse — so if there are any changes you’d like to see, please let me know either by email (maungaturotomatters@gmail.com) or by drop-ping a note in the red box in Tony’s.
Residents survey
This edition is also important because it sees the first results of the Survey, which the Resi-dents Association ran a month or two back. Further results will be included in the next edi-tion. You’ll have seen the word cloud listing the best things about living in Maungaturoto on the front cover. Hidden rather more discreetly in the centre pages is a smaller cloud summa-rising the things people didn’t like. The good things are clearly what we need to enjoy and protect. The bad things, however, are no less important because they are what we need to work on to improve. One of the key aims of the
Matters
 will be to drum up support for such work — and to inform everyone of the progress that we all make. So, I hope you enjoy reading this edition of the
Maungaturoto Matters
as much as you’ve en-joyed reading previous ones. And — with the aid of the editorial committee and all the ea-ger volunteers involved in compiling, collating and distributing the
Matters —
I look forward to producing future editions on your behalf.
Cheers, David

ARTHRITIS NEW ZEALAND APPEAL WEEK SEPTEMBER 20th to 26th
There will be no door to door collection in this area this year.
I have been diagnosed as having pseudo gout in my right knee – a form of arthritis. Therefore I shall be unable to canvass the six out-lying roads I usually cover. And if I can’t lead by example.... Personally I want to thank all those who have so generously donated all those years I have been I involved. And to those wonderful collectors I say thank you - and thank you again! I shall endeavour to have a collection bucket or bag outside Tony’s or Four Square at times during collection week.
If you need help or advice with Arthritis – Free phone 0800 663 463.
Zoe Roadley.
