“I would just like to say we were pleased to receive a copy of the Rangitoto Observer which is a huge improvement on the North Shore Times (which now must be near its demise). The Times now has minimal local news and the deliveries have almost ceased completely.”

Geoff Hawcridge, reader

“Really pleased with the double page spread – looked amazing and I am taking a steady stream of people signing up to attend our event.”

Alistair Helm,

“I would estimate that foot traffic to my business has increased by around 20% due to the feature of my business in this publication and customers have been reached in Hauraki, Belmont and Devonport districts”

Joanne Stretton, Owner Devonport Alterations

“Lively, parochial and sometimes a pain in the neck for officialdom. Just like a local paper should be.”
