A word from the Editor

Is it winter or is it summer? From snow on the tops to searing temperatures at the beach, our fickle weather is providing the classic Kiwi “Four seasons in one day” experience!

One thing that remains constant is the busy buzz of summer activities in the Bay – from the chaos of the Tata Cardboard Boat Race to the military-type organisation of the Golden Bay A&P Show, and from intensity of the firefighters’ Combat Challenge to the relative calm of the Takaka Dog Trials.

Whatever is happening around the Bay, The GB Weekly will be on the spot, talking to members of our community, taking photos and watching events unfold.

Your local paper is of the community and for the community, and we love being able to celebrate all that’s great about Golden Bay.
