Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

TWO lo­cal res­i­dents know first-hand the im­por­tant role their lo­cal pa­per plays in the com­mu­nity.

Fre­man­tle artist Ros de Souza and her hus­band Ian have used the Gazette to spread the word about new ex­hi­bi­tions and projects since 1997.

“The Gazette is the first I con­tact,” Ros said.

“Com­mu­nity pa­pers have a huge ef­fect. I asked peo­ple at the Art­walk Freo event how they heard of the AWF week­end and they say it’s the com­mu­nity news­pa­per.”

Cock­burn Chat’s Lara Kirk­wood said she loved read­ing the lo­cal pa­per.

“It pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to read about lo­cal sto­ries in my lo­cal neigh­bour­hood about lo­cal peo­ple,” she said.

“Hav­ing them on­line makes it eas­ier to share it across so­cial me­dia, in groups such as Cock­burn Chat and res­i­dents as­so­ci­a­tion Face­book pages.”

The Fre­man­tle Gazette and Cock­burn Gazette are run­ning a reader sur­vey to give you the op­por­tu­nity to tell us what you like or don’t like to read and have a real say in the direc­tion our cov­er­age takes.

All you have to do is go to www.my­commu­ni­ty­panel. com.au and fol­low the in­struc­tions to reg­is­ter, then rank the things that matter most to you.

And as a reward, for com­plet­ing the sur­vey you will go in a draw to win one of 10 fab­u­lous overnight stays at Crown Tow­ers Perth.
