Welcome to the Southbank Local News

13 Sep 2011

The Southbank Local News is a brand new local publication, serving the residents, businesses and visitors of postcode 3006.

We have been working feverishly to produce the very first edition of this exciting new local paper, and I believe the hard work has paid off.

Our mandate is simple – if it matters to Southbank, it matters to us. We will cover all events, news and changes that affect the region.

The first edition of the Southbank local news includes many pressing issues for locals and visitors alike, such as the serviced apartment issue, the lack of a primary school in the area and progress on the police pod planned for Queensbridge Square.

You can help us achieve our vision of being completely community-focused by sending in your news, views, letters and photos from our area.

We believe that all communities deserve to have a strong and independent local newspaper, and that is exactly what we will strive to provide.

The population of Southbank is growing rapidly, so now is the perfect time to launch a newspaper you can call your own and which contains issues exclusively about your own precinct.

Of course I have had a lot of support in setting up the newspaper, and I particularly want to thank Greg Hackett for taking charge of advertising, Nicola St John for the design and Shane Scanlan for the business side of the paper, and his general support and guidance.

On top of this, it is important for me to thank all of our foundation advertisers, without whom this publication would not be possible. A local paper such as this cannot survive without their support, so I encourage you to support them as well.

As the paper grows in size and awareness, we look forward to fulfilling our role as the voice of Southbank. Welcome to the Southbank Local News.
