Publisher still believes in Santa Claus & his newspaper

its-a-wonderful-newspaper

Yep, it’s a wonderful newspaper. And while I may be still on the fence about Santa, I certainly believe in the Parliament Street News. This is the holiday edition and what a time for a festive edition of anything. This also happens to be the 50th issue in the 10th year of publishing. While print media is getting killed everywhere else, there is still a thirst for something from the community and by the community. It has been a good run and let’s keep it going. In fact, it may be time to take it to the next level. We have a few ideas.

 
With everything going on, at the time of writing this, we may not even be able to deliver. I have to thank all of our advertisers past and present (over 10 years) for their commitment to local. We depend on them as much as they rely on you and me. The paper is about letting people share with each other. If you don’t like the content please please please send us something better we will print and deliver it.

 
All the best luck to our readers, supporters, local businesses and contributors.

 
If you would like to support the paper next year with a targeted and multifaceted advertising campaign the Parliament Street News can literally deliver great local reach via the the paper and our ever-growing social channels.

 
Happy Holidays
Pete Lovering , Publisher, Parliament Street News
