BEING editor of the local community newspaper is hard, I’m not going to lie.
It’s hard work and you’re making (sometimes tough) decisions, all the time, probably like a lot of business owners in this region.
It never ceases to amaze me how many new businesses pop up all the time. Hope springs eternal, as they say!
We do it because we love it – why else? We could easily work for someone else – but would that work for us?
I love what I do, bringing the news to the local community each week.
Please do send me your feedback – email@example.com
We are packed to the rafters (again) this week and seriously need to think about upsizing to accommodate the many stories that come flooding in from all over the Whitsundays.
We endeavour to bring a cross-section of stories and we’d like more space to deliver more stories about your part of this amazing region.
We are looking for long-term partners to become involved and sponsor a page and help us grow the newspaper. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
To find out what’s going on in the region, turn to our entertainment section on pages 20 to 22.
Our new journalist Amy Roulston is out and about so, if you see her, please be sure to tell her about any events you have happening. Or email Amy at email@example.com.
Charity events and fundraisers are always supported free in the Whitsunday News newspaper.
It was just one year ago that we increased the paper to 32 pages (from its previous 28 pages).
It has been a pleasure to bring you four extra pages of news, community stories and sport every week, during the past year.
We are a very small team, but the leap wasn’t actually as difficult as we had imagined, and we’d like to do it again – join us on our journey.
Thank you for reading this newspaper.
