FROM THE EDITOR
After consultation with staff and the wider readership, no buyer has been found for the Christchurch Mail and so the paper will cease publication next month. The last edition will be published on April 26.
This has not been an easy decision and staff have been affected, including our reporter, Monique Steele, who will head off to bigger and brighter things.
Personally, I edit three other community newspapers. One of those isn’t on the list but the other two, like me, are in a state of limbo until we get more information. So while it’s a hard time, it’s also a busy time for us all.
You will continue to find plenty of news and information from your community online at stuff.co.nz and press.co.nz. And of course The Press isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
You can also keep in touch with your local community through Neighbourly. We’ll share more information and some tips on how to get the best out of Neighbourly in coming weeks.
