FROM THE EDITOR
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.
