20 years and going strong

IT’S a true blessing to celebrate with you today — the 20th anniversary of this well-established Pietermaritzburg local newspaper.

To establish a successful business and keep it going over so many years, a number of important elements are needed on a daily basis and in our success story it is most certainly you as our readers and advertisers.

You are the reason why this publication was started 20 years ago, and you are the reason why it is still thriving today, and will continue to grow.

With many changes over the years, to keep up with trends and the needs of the community, we are proud to say that, over the last few years, we successfully achieved our goal to be “a close to home” publication with relevant editorial content and being a suitable platform to take advertisers into many homes.

We have established a good market share and, with our competitive advantages, our stakeholders receive value, print quality, and verified distribution every week.

We will continue to be of service to you, and want to sincerely thank you for your ongoing support and loyalty — without you this milestone would not have been possible.

Behind the scenes, there is an outstanding team that are hard-working and very dedicated to make this publication successful.

Thank you to everyone — your passion, energy and vision is and has truly been the heartbeat of this publication.

It will be an honour to reinforce current relations and establish new ones in the next 20-year journey of this publication.
