October already. Start of the summer season – though this year it is unclear how that summer season will play out. There is plenty on – the end of September is Illume Festival including the Sailors and Loggers Ball – all which still plans to go ahead even if Level 2 is extended. The ArtsTour kicks off the first weekend in October and the Coromandel Players are putting on a play which celebrates the role of working class women during the 1951 Waterfront Lockout, which will be good – I’ve read the script. Also the ferry is starting up for Labour Weekend. So get out there and enjoy – albeit with social distancing and masks maybe!

As I put this issue together it is Māori Language Week. I seem to be getting more and more articles with Māori words in which when I import into my design software become boxes in the type showing a missing character. In order to accommodate Māori macrons in Chronicle articles going forward I have therefore had a slight change of font. So hopefully the articles all show as the authors’ intended now. And if you are supplying articles with Māori in them please keep it to basic words and phases so that people can understand.

So as an English girl turned New Zealander please be understanding if I make mistakes with Māori, and if anyone has some Māori words or phases that you think would be appropriate for me to use in the Chronicle, then I welcome your suggestions.
