FROM THE NEWS DESK

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

Last week I at­tended a con­fer­ence with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the 50-odd Fair­fax-owned com­mu­nity news­pa­pers in New Zealand.

Reg­u­lar read­ers might re­mem­ber that we re­designed the lay­out of our pa­pers last year. This work was in­formed by a re­search project, which has gone on to win an in­ter­na­tional award.

It told us that the main thing you wanted from your com­mu­nity news­pa­per was lo­cal news. The kind you don’t get else­where. This week we bring you at least 10 pages from your neigh­bour­hood.

We also learned you wanted ‘‘Whats On’’ list­ings and to know what events are hap­pen­ing, see pages 2, 12 and 13.

Another key area was din­ing. We haven’t run our pop­u­lar Mir­ror restau­rant re­views for a while. Do you want to see them back?

We also want to hear any other ideas you have for the Mir­ror. Please get in touch and let us know.
