Congratulations to everyone who entered the Mahurangi Matters Fathers Day competition. The winner of the $300 chainsaw from Stihl Shop Warkworth was brand new Dad Stefan Thorn, who only became a father on August 23, when son Anthony arrived. The winner of a voucher pack worth more than $650 was Jim Sonerson of Point Wells.
Mahurangi Matters general manager Jannette Thompson says that thankfully, the paper did not have to judge the photos on their merits, as it would have been impossible to choose a winner. “They were all so good in their own way,” she says. “Instead, the winning entries were randomly pulled from a basket.”
Mahurangi Matters thanks the businesses who supported the competition and all the entrants.
Here’s a look at just some of the entries …
