Newsletters Produced by the Locals for the Locals
Just like the Gold Coast's iconic golden beaches and its green band of Hinterland, The Local Newsletters has cemented its place as a local identity keeping pace with the Gold Coast's rapid growth.
Established in 1989 with a single newsletter and 10000 distribution the company now averages 10 monthly newsletters with more than 140000 distribution. The majority of the newsletters are distributed to houses by council divisions from Beenleigh to Coolangatta.
Hundreds of locals provide the informative articles in the newsletters, many pertaining to that particular division. Included in these are the Council Updates, the Local Councillor, Members of State and Federal Parliament, along with many professions covering legal, financial , optical and medical to name a but a few.
The Local Newsletters prides itself on devoting much space to assist the community and the publications are widely used as a voice for community groups, service clubs, progress associations and many charities including The Animal Welfare League, Cancer Council, Unicef, and Red Cross. The newsletters were a key player in setting up neighbourhood watch in many suburbs and three years in a row received the Gold Coast Community Policing award presented by the mayor.
On a lighter side we receive hundreds of entries for our competitions for prizes including dining vouchers, books and DVDs. The competitions are sponsored by well known companies such as Mattel, Pan Macmillan and Road Show Entertainment. Our puzzles are ever popular and the founder's mother nonagenarian Mona Elliott has composed the crosswords since the first edition in 1989 and even our horoscopes are produced by a local astrologer.
We certainly are produced by the locals for the locals.
