NEWS is chang­ing: Af­ter close to 150 years of the Bor­der Post, the phys­i­cal pub­li­ca­tion will cease pro­duc­tion with to­day’s edi­tion – Thurs­day, June 25.

As job cuts swept across the coun­try, many Aus­tralian news­pa­pers were forced to make sig­nif­i­cant changes to their out­put, leav­ing many ru­ral and re­gional ar­eas de­void of lo­cal cov­er­age.

On the South­ern Downs, how­ever, your sto­ries will con­tinue to be shared.

Five ded­i­cated jour­nal­ists re­main on staff to en­sure the com­mu­nity re­mains con­nected, en­ter­tained and in­formed seven days a week.

We will con­tinue to cover the sto­ries that mat­ter to you.

From high-adren­a­line footy games to the strug­gles of se­vere fire sea­sons, the wins of busi­nesses and the loss of beloved res­i­dents, daily dig­i­tal news of­fers a de­gree of lo­cal, timely and tai­lored cov­er­age that is im­pos­si­ble to repli­cate in weekly pa­pers, or news out­lets fur­ther afield.

For as long as the mast­head con­tin­ues on­line, there will be trained re­porters who hit the ground run­ning at 7am, mak­ing calls, sched­ul­ing in­ter­views, tak­ing pho­tographs and pump­ing out, on av­er­age, five sto­ries each and ev­ery sin­gle day.

More than any­thing, there

will be some­one who gen­uinely cares about the peo­ple of the South­ern Downs and their sto­ries. We have cried, laughed and cheered with this com

mu­nity, and we hope to do so for gen­er­a­tions to come.

The fu­ture of the news has al­ways been re­liant on its cus­tomer base and we hope our val­ued read­ers will con­tinue to sup­port us, so we can con­tinue to serve our com­mu­nity long into the fu­ture.

Pur­chas­ing a dig­i­tal sub­scrip­tion will help se­cure the fu­ture of the Bor­der Post and en­sure our lo­cal jour­nal­ists can con­tinue to cover the is­sues that mat­ter.

It will help en­sure you con­tinue to have a voice.
