Celebri­ties hail WSW

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

Rus­sell Gibbs, Hawai­ian Group direc­tor and chief ex­ec­u­tive

“Hav­ing pub­li­ca­tions ded­i­cated to lo­cal news is im­por­tant for our com­mu­ni­ties. Not only do they keep lo­cal res­i­dents in­formed of rel­e­vant is­sues and hap­pen­ings, they give op­por­tu­ni­ties to more grass root groups and small busi­nesses, which form the foun­da­tion of any lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group on the ser­vice that their pub­li­ca­tions pro­vide across the state.”

Greg Hire - Perth Wild­cats

“Com­mu­nity is at the very heart of what the Perth Wild­cats do, and noth­ing helps keep a com­mu­nity bet­ter in­formed then its lo­cal rag!

I truly value the role they play in so­ci­ety – even in the mod­ern world of dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tion.

Our train­ing fa­cil­i­ties are in Floreat so both my­self and my team­mates read the Western Sub­urbs Weekly reg­u­larly, and I’d just like to say con­grat­u­la­tions on 15 years of qual­ity lo­cal story telling.”

Jayne Smeul­ders - WA Bal­let

“I al­ways look for­ward to the WSW each week – its colour for­mat, lo­cal con­tent, and the Weekly Life sec­tion are all things I love about it.

The lo­cal arts scene al­ways receives great cov­er­age, and the What’s On Plan­ner is a handy way of quickly check­ing what’s com­ing up over the com­ing week or two.

Ros Wor­thing­ton - Phi­lan­thropist, West Aus­tralian of the Year, Au­thor

For the past 15 years that I have been in­volved in char­ity I have re­ceived noth­ing but won­der­ful sup­port from Western Sub­urbs Weekly (WSW). From Make-a-wish Foun­da­tion to Breast Can­cer Care WA WSW have shown such gen­eros­ity of spirit for the com­mu­nity and help­ing at ev­ery opportunity.

Thank you for the amaz­ing work you do in help­ing those less for­tu­nate by cre­at­ing aware­ness and get­ting the mes­sage to many Western Aus­tralians. Love your work.

Jes­sica Bratich-john­son - De­signer and karate cham­pion

I’ve al­ways en­joyed read­ing the Western Sub­urbs Weekly as they have al­ways been a great sup­porter of lo­cal fash­ion de­sign­ers and events.

I find lo­cal me­dia can of­ten be quite re­fresh­ing in a world where a lot of me­dia can be quite neg­a­tive.
