Lo­cal news cover­age will con­tinue on­line

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

THIS will be the last printed edi­tion of the Gazette.

We thank you for your sup­port over the years and look for­ward to bring­ing you lo­cal news on our web­site, com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au, en­gag­ing with you on our so­cial me­dia plat­forms or in­clud­ing your news in neigh­bour­ing news­pa­pers which will be de­liv­ered to new pick-up points.

The East­ern Re­porter will be dis­trib­uted through the Mid­land-Guild­ford area. Kala­munda will be in­cor­po­rated into the South­ern

Gazette Bel­mont and Kala­munda edi­tion re­gion. Both of these pub­li­ca­tions can be col­lected at lo­cal shop­ping and com­mu­nity ar­eas.

The dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to cease print­ing the

Gazette fol­lowed an ex­haus­tive re­view of all our news­pa­pers and dig­i­tal pub­lish­ing chan­nels.

The re­view looked at how well we en­gage with our read­ers, the eco­nomic con­di­tions across Perth and in each com­mu­nity, and how we could en­sure we have a sus­tain­able busi­ness to bring news and in­for­ma­tion to Perth’s res­i­dents well into the fu­ture.

Un­for­tu­nately, eco­nomic con­di­tions and chang­ing me­dia buy­ing habits mean that in all the ar­eas the Gazette cov­ers, it is no longer vi­able to cre­ate, pro­duce and de­liver a lo­cal news­pa­per.

But we have also found we have an in­creas­ingly en­gaged au­di­ence on our dig­i­tal plat­forms so have pledged to con­tinue serv­ing our au­di­ence there.

We ap­pre­ci­ate all the sup­port of our great read­er­ship and the busi­nesses who have sup­ported us.

It has been a real joy to bring you the best lo­cal news each week and we look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing that re­la­tion­ship on­line into the fu­ture.
