Festive farewell


The last edition of The Ashburton Courier for 2021 is out this week.
It’s been a crazy year of yet more covid-related news but we haven’t let that stop us telling
your other stories over the past 12 months.
In fact, that’s been a strong theme of this year.
Covid has had a big impact on the way we live and work, but the people of Ashburton district have carried on and still got a lot done despite it all.
We got through the country’s second lockdown.
We kept our social distancing and personal hygiene practises, and for most, our sense of humour.
Let’s hope all this hard work will be rewarded with more freedom next year.
Our first edition of 2022 will be January 13.
– Merry Christmas, Daniel Tobin
