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