We keep the rates low so local businesses can afford to advertise.  Our editorial philosophy is to support businesses, clubs, organisations and schools in the area. We like to print positive good news. If you’ve got a promotion on, let us know. If you’re fundraising for charity, let us know. If new staff are joining or existing staff are retiring, let us know. It’s all a great excuse for a story and photo!

A print publication like this works well in the community because we can control what goes in it, unlike social media where it’s often criticism and negative comments. Anyway, a post on social media quickly gets buried under newer posts, whereas a print publication stays around for more people to pick up and enjoy reading.
