THE third issue of the print edition of New Norfolk and Derwent Valley News will be available tomorrow, Friday, September 11. The paper will be on sale at twice the number of outlets as last month, with orders being received from Longford in the north to Kingston in the south.
Tomorrow’s issue is another 28-page-paper, containing more than 50 individual news items, letters, historical articles, sport and more. There is a special two-page feature on the New Norfolk Fire Brigade (pictured) being recognised for its century-plus service to the town, including the names of nearly 30 members who have been awarded the Tasmania Fire Service Volunteer Jubilee Medal. There’s another great recipe from the Magra CWA, young people kicking goals, the Willow Court latest, and council news you won’t get anywhere else.
In the Derwent Valley, the shops stocking the paper include the New Norfolk Newsagency, Riteway New Norfolk, Eagle Snack Bar, New Norfolk IGA, Bushy Park Roadhouse, Westerway Roadhouse, Ellendale Post Office, and Hamilton Post Office. Mood Food New Norfolk, Claremont Newsagency, Bridgewater Newsagency, the Lagoon Store at Granton, and the Bothwell Supermarket are among the new sellers this month, while readers in any part of Tasmania can ask their preferred newsagency to order them a copy via the Mercury as the distribution agent.
Good sales were achieved by the New Norfolk Newsagent’s door-to-door sellers last month, and New Norfolk residents remain able to ask the newsagent to organise for a paper seller to visit within the town boundaries. More distant readers might prefer to download a copy from newnorfolknews.com.
