Early early deadline alerts

2018-03-14 06:00

IN the next seven weeks, there are five public holidays and, of course, the school holidays.

First up in two weeks’ time is Human Rights Day on Wednesday, March 21, but whew, deadlines as usual! It’s Friday, March 23 at 1 pm for display advertising and Monday, March 26 at 9 am for classifieds.

Copy, that is school reports, sports, news, etc. as early as possible please, but not later than 11 am on the Monday.

And then the fun starts. Good Friday is Friday, March 30, and Family Day (Easter Monday) is April 2, which unfortunately means that the printers are closed on those two days.

So the advertising deadline for the issue of Wednesday, April 4, is the previous Thursday, March 29 at 9 am — ridiculous I know, but as always your co-operation is greatly appreciated. The school holidays are from March 28 to April 10.

Any photos and reports, prior to the holidays, are also greatly appreciated. For general reports, sports, community news, etc., the deadline is Thursday, March 29 at 1 pm. Many thanks.

There will be a repeat of these very early deadlines at the end of April, as Friday, April 27 is Freedom Day and Tuesday, May 1 is Workers Day, and those who are lucky enough will make it a long, long weekend by taking April 30 off too! Details of these deadlines to come.
