The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - - Lisa Hous­ton

I think the re­turn­ing suc­cess and eco­nomic growth of Broad­way has been ob­vi­ous.

I’m sure most of us re­call the num­ber of empty shop fronts and build­ings down this in­ner city street in re­cent years, but now there’s new eater­ies and re­tail­ers pop­ping up.

Though The Plaza serves a pur­pose and re­mains pop­u­lar, malls and the generic stores that fill them can’t cap­ture the char­ac­ter of a city the way a lively street can.

We’ve also had some ex­cit­ing suc­cess in the Manawatu news­room this week with some wins at the Canon Media Awards 2017. Our paper the Feild­ing-Ran­gi­tikei Herald was judged Com­mu­nity News­pa­per of the Year, re­porter Miri Schroeter was awarded Stu­dent Jour­nal­ist of the Year and chief news di­rec­tor Matthew Dal­las picked up the award for Best Head­line.

We are over the moon and thank you for your sup­port of our work.
