Your big­ger lo­cal read

New-look Times will de­liver more Bur­nett news, sports and so­cial events

Central and North Burnett Times - - AROUND TOWN -

CEN­TRAL and North Bur­nett Times staff had an early start last Thurs­day morn­ing, as we in­tro­duced our re­designed pa­per to lo­cals in each of the towns and handed out scratchies.

A few checked straight away if they’d won any­thing be­cause they’d for­got­ten the cost of their lo­cal pa­per had risen by 20c and only brought in their usual $1.10.

Mun­dub­bera’s 2013 Cit­i­zen of the Year Peter Van Breemen was the first to pur­chase the re­designed pa­per, just af­ter Mun­dub­bera News opened at 6am and 100 scratchies had been given to buy­ers by 8.50am.

Monto res­i­dents showed they were pos­i­tive about the re­design and were happy to sup­port their lo­cal pa­per.

In Gayn­dah, 100 scratchies were handed out be­fore 9.30am, as read­ers snapped up a copy of the new-look Times.

Most cus­tomers ac­cepted the price rise and you can ex­pect it to bring more lo­cal news, sports and so­cial events.
