Welcome, Shelley to the Cambridge News team

Shelley Mason

We are excited to announce that Shelley Mason has joined the Cambridge News team, working the front desk from Monday to Friday, from 9am – 3pm.

Originally from Rotorua, Shelley moved to Cambridge from Hamilton with husband Simon and children Oliver (10) and Kimberley (8) almost five years ago. They came here for Simon’s work – he’s a landscaper who was working on a big project in Hora Hora at the time – but the family has fallen in love with the town.

“I like the close-knit, community feel of Cambridge,” Shelley said, “everyone here has been so friendly.”

Shelley joins the Cambridge News team from NT Joinery in Te Awamutu, where she worked for 18 months. “This is a completely new industry for me to be in, and I’m really looking forward to working in a small team and working with the community.”

Shelley’s appointment demonstrates a continued commitment to investing in the town by Cambridge News’ owner, David Mackenzie. “It’s important to us to have a friendly face to greet our advertisers and readers, and I’m confident that Shelley will be a most valuable addition to the Cambridge News team,” he said.

Welcome, Shelley, we are pleased to have you as part of the team (and not just because it’s your job to get the milk).

Feel free to come in and say ‘hi’ to Shelley if you are passing – we are upstairs at 55 Victoria St – or give her a call on 07 827 0005.
