Powerless for two Tuesdays- early deadlines again

2018-10-03 06:00

MANY people mutter and moan about Eskom — if it’s not the high price of electricity, it’s the possibility of power outages etc. But the Greytown Gazette has a unique mutter and moan.

For two Tuesdays in October, 16 and 23 there will be no power from 6 am to 6 pm, as well as on Thursday October 25. This means, believe it or not, having weathered all this year’s public holidays to date we now have another two early deadline situations.

For issues of October 11 and 16 at12 noon; deadline for display advertisements booking and copy are:

Monday, October 15 at 9.30 am.

Monday, October 15 at 9 am is classifieds deadline.

Deadlines for the following Tuesday, October 23 will be published next week.
