A Change Has Occurred
The agency known as Central Realty 2010 Limited has commenced trading as Ray White
Cromwell. Business owner Wayman Roughan said that in joining Ray White it will allow his business and
sales team a greater reach given the number of offices that Ray White has throughout the area. "Ray White also
has a superior technology platform which will allow us wider access to local, national and international buyers.
Our sales team are very excited about the change and the ability to grow their own businesses to a new level."
Carey Smith, Chief Executive of Ray White New Zealand, said "The Ray White Group has
continued to expand and we welcome Wayman Roughan and his Cromwell sales team.
We have good coverage throughout Central Otago and the Southern Lakes and Wayman's team joining our

Central Otago is set to become the
setting of a new contemporary
novel but residents can rest easy
that the leading characters will
not be based on them.
Henderson House artist-in-
residence Owen Jones, known by
his nom de plume Owen Marshall,
has been working on his new

residence positions in Dunedin,
Nelson, Canterbury and France.
Details of what the novel was

''I think with a work in progress if
you talk too much about it you
can lose the inspiration to write
about it,'' he said.
However, ''people can rest easy
that they won't be in it''.

As well as working on some
poetry while he is here, this week
Mr Jones will be visiting Central
Otago high schools to talk to
students about writing stories.
