Here is the news: Your favourite newspaper is out tomorrow

THE fourth issue of the print edition of New Norfolk and Derwent Valley News will be available tomorrow, Friday, October 16. The wait has been a little longer since the September issue, due to there being five Fridays in October.

A growing number of Northern Suburbs newsagencies is now selling the paper, for those with an interest in the local news of the Derwent Valley and Central Highlands.

Tomorrow’s issue is another 28-page-paper, containing about 50 individual news items, plus your letters and two pages of puzzles.

There is a special two-page feature on the New Norfolk Ambulance Station’s 50th anniversary, including some great photos. There’s another recipe from the Magra CWA, local history, the Willow Court latest, and council news you won’t get anywhere else.

  1. “Here is the news: Your favOURite newspaper is out tomorrow”

    Let us think about the opportunity that has been created for folk to contact the paper.
    Please share with US…….The power of your story in writing which captures WHY this is “your fav*0UR*ite paper”

  2. Feedback on the idea WHY this paper can become a favorite. “Spotlight on books” has pointed me in the direction of a blast from the past. Some folk might remember a POTUS saying… “I’m not a crook”… That same man was to be a byproduct of the investigative journalism of the time.

    This brings me to page 20 of the paper & the book RAGE. Rage is a book by the American journalist Bob Woodward about the presidency of Donald Trump, published on September 15, 2020 by Simon & Schuster.

    “Trump insists to Woodward he will triumph over Covid-19 and the economic calamity. “Don’t worry about it, Bob. Okay?” Trump told the author in July. “Don’t worry about it. We’ll get to do another book. You’ll find I was right.”
