Christchurch Mail - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

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 and 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.
