Season’s greetings Southbank

14 Dec 2014

Season’s greetings Southbank Image

Welcome to the final edition of the ‘Southbank Local News’ for 2014.

While I have only witnessed six months of news first-hand since coming in as new editor for my predecessor Sean Rogasch in July, I can confidently say there has been anything but a shortage of content to fill our pages.  

Some of the major stories the newspaper has covered this year have included the approval of Australia 108, City Rd’s future development, the announcement of the Domain and Montague underground train stations, overshadowing of the Yarra and the 2014 International AIDS Conference.

And in a bid to keep our ever-growing community up to speed with local events, I can also proudly say that 2014 marks the achievement of a new record in size and circulation of the Southbank Local News.

It’s only due to the continued support of our valued advertisers that we are able to broaden our reach within the local area and I’d like to say a special thanks to the local stakeholders who have invested in this community asset.

I’d also like to thank our regular columnists, who each month provide the newspaper with interesting perspectives to share with the Southbank community.

To our readers – thank you for picking up a copy of the Southbank Local News each month and for sharing your stories with us this year.

I’d like to wish all readers, contributors and advertisers a happy and safe festive season with friends and family.

Southbank Local News will be back with its first edition for 2015 in February and we look forward to bringing you more news from postcode 3006 next year.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Sean Car
Editor
