The Chrismas 2018 Issue

Just one last thing...

Omarama School promotes its five core values based on 'L-I-G-H-T' from the phrase "Omarama, Place of Light", and I summarise - Learning, being Inclusive, Growing, Helping and Truthfulness. 'Values' - it’s a bit of a buzz word – but it’s one I’ve thought about a bit this year. For several reasons. One was our regular feature, the Employee of the Month. It wasn’t hard to find people in this town with interesting jobs – we have so much talent - but I also found these same people have certain ‘values’ in common. Not only are they dedicated to their roles, but they are also committed to going that extra mile. They each believe in looking out for one another. Secondly, earlier this year, a town visioning session was held in Omarama. In publicising this session I put together a series of stories to get people thinking about their ‘vision’ for our town. The overwhelming consensus was people did not want Omarama to become yet another busy, crowded, impersonal, ‘tourist' town... >>> continue reading <<<

Mobil Omarama

When you’re ‘on-the-go’ you’ll want to keep coming back to Mobil Omarama and Twizel. New state-of-the-art technology at the pumps and at point-of-sale promise to make each visit smooth and efficient. Terry and Michelle Walsh are celebrating the completion of renovations throughout both sites ready to welcome the steady flow of locals and visitors off on their summer road trips. As well as the clean, bright, fresh look, both instore and on the forecourt, regular customers will have noticed a few new faces have joined the friendly teams at both sites. Pop-in and introduce yourself, they’re always happy to help. At the same time, treat yourself to a little something from their range of coffees – barista made - and perhaps a fresh gourmet sandwich or two. If you’ve got an early start Mobil’s a great place to head first to set yourself up for the day. In fact, with the upgraded 24-hour card system “so much easier to use” you can fill up any time, Terry says. But you do have to wait until 7am before you can fuel that other tank. You can grab a newspaper to go with that coffee and a little something for lunch before you head off. Mmm, there are pies! One bonus of the new technology means all parts of the operation “talk” to each other, plus both Twizel and Omarama sites are now “aligned”, Michelle says. The addition of high-definition digital screens at the pumps will also bring you the latest about new products. “There are not many places have that level of technology on the pumps,” Terry says. This year, as always, Michelle and Terry are extending an invitation to customers old and new – to join them for their Christmas shout on Friday, December 21. “We would love to see you all here again this year. “If you are not a customer yet – come along, have a Christmas drink and say gidday!” The Mobil Omarama Workshop closes Thursday December 20 and reopens December 27.
