Over the summer season there are so many events taking place including the Wairarapa Racing Club, Country Music Festival, Cruise Martinborough, the Martinborough Fair, Huri Huri Bike Festival, Wairarapa Balloon Festival and Brew Day. In March we are treated to the Wairarapa Wines Harvest Festival, Golden Shears and The Castlepoint Beach Races.

So be sure to mark your calendar and enjoy the festivities and the beautiful summer days here in the Wairarapa.

When planning editorial for the next issue, the writing team get together and brainstorm over coffee and it never fails to impress me how many ideas we come up with, often accompanied with much hilarity. In this issue we profile some of the interesting people living here, from all walks of life, who are changing the face of the region with their talents, knowledge and expertise.

The next issue, Autumn #40, due out in March 2016, will be our 10th birthday and will feature
a special Wedding section to coincide with the Wellington Wedding Show.

I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone and I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the advertisers and readers who have supported the magazine and made publication possible. 

Enjoy the warm summer days and see you again in Autumn

Cheers Raewyn.
