News­wor­thy cel­e­bra­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

IT’S been a year since the West­ern Sub­urbs Weekly moved in to Clare­mont.

Sales and edi­to­rial staff at the Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group pub­li­ca­tion moved to the re­fur­bished of­fice at 1 Leura Av­enue, Clare­mont to take ad­van­tage of the high foot traf­fic in the area.

The new lo­ca­tion has helped the team forge even stronger re­la­tion­ships with the west­ern sub­urbs com­mu­nity.

Editor Denise Cahill said read­ers and clients of­ten dropped in as they walked past to grab the pa­per and chat to staff.

“Peo­ple stop by to say hello or talk about a story idea rather than call­ing or email­ing,” she said. “A lot of peo­ple still like the face-to-face in­ter­ac­tion and it’s even eas­ier in this lo­ca­tion.”

The West­ern Sub­urbs Weekly has had another suc­cess­ful year, win­ning the Com­mu­nity News­pa­pers of Aus­tralia Best News­pa­per South­ern Di­vi­sion for the fifth con­sec­u­tive year.

Judges said the West­ern Sub­urbs Weekly was a “re­fresh­ing pa­per” and were par­tic­u­larly im­pressed by the Scene Out sec­tion and lo­cal edi­to­rial con­tent.
