Thanks for the sup­port


WELL the time has come to write my last editorial for the Tweed Daily News.

I would like to thank you, the read­ers and ad­ver­tis­ers, who have sup­ported the pa­per over the decades and given us rea­son to be here.

It hasn’t just been about sup­ply­ing us with sto­ries and in­for­ma­tion but also sug­ges­tions and leads to fol­low.

To all the let­ter writ­ers, thanks for your con­tri­bu­tions; to the colum­nists who added so much to the pa­per, I am sure our read­ers en­joyed your ef­forts; and to our ad­ver­tis­ers, we hope you have ben­e­fited from your sup­port of the pa­per.

To all the sports and so­cial clubs and groups, your notes and results were part of the Tweed DNA; and to the fes­ti­val and event or­gan­is­ers, you gave us plenty to write about and take pho­to­graphs of.

Thanks to the politi­cians at all lev­els over the years to worked with us in many dif­fer­ent ways – for bet­ter or for worse – and to Tweed Shire Coun­cil and to Troy Green and his staff for help­ing us de­liver prob­a­bly the most important level of gov­ern­ment in­for­ma­tion to res­i­dents and ratepay­ers.

And thanks to the emer­gency ser­vice peo­ple – the po­lice, fire ser­vices, am­bu­lance, SES, health work­ers and all those we de­pend upon in times of cri­sis.

The print ver­sion of the Tweed Daily may go but the cov­er­age of the Tweed in a dig­i­tal age will continue.

It’s an ad­just­ment we will have to make but I am sure it will be one which will continue to de­liver news that is important to the Tweed.

Good luck in the fu­ture.
