Sedgefield and its surrounding Garden Route communities are a growing market, with many residents enjoying a good quality of life, enriched by a healthy environment, good amenities and friendly locals. Their main focus is the best for their families and friends.
The EDGE reflects these positive attributes.
We are also aware that there are many in the community who need upliftment and assistance. Part of our task as their newspaper is to be their voice. Highlighting their plight, championing their causes and connecting them with those who may be able to assist is a large part of what we are all about.
Local news content is key to our success. We pride ourselves on the depth, quality and accuracy of our stories.
The EDGE is proud to have its roots in the community it serves, with each edition packed with names and faces of local people.
Many contributors – from societies, schools and organisations – submit content on a regular basis. They feel part of the paper and we are delighted to have them on board. Our newspaper is rich in content and passionate about celebrating local life – with a touch of quirky humour that goes with it.. It is written and put together at our offices in the heart of the community. Our experienced team knows what makes the Garden Route tick because we all live and breathe this wonderful area.
The newspaper focuses on issues, people and places, and we are pleased our readers do not see it as pick-me-up, five-minute read, but rather something they enjoy at their leisure and return to during the course of the week.
We are not complacent and we strive to improve further. With the community’s support, we have proven over the last 18 years that there is a need for a local newspaper. Our aim is to continue to make The EDGE something that the community is proud of.

SWING INTO SPRING WITH A SONG IN YOUR HEART Winter is done and Spring is in the air so let music put a spring in your step. Let’s celebrate the arrival of greenery and blossoms in our beautiful natural surroundings with Carpe Musicam!, the Southern Cape’s favourite little orchestra, presenting their popular annual Spring/Swing is in the Air concert in the NGK Sedgefield (Hoepoe Street) on Saturday 14 October at 7pm. On the varied concert programme is an exciting miscellany of Spring and swing-themed musical treats ranging from Japanese traditional music played on a Chinese traditional instrument (!) to a brand new arrangement and orchestration of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, which explores rock, swing and Latin interpretations of Gershwin’s immortal theme, as well as allowing drummer Kevi Levin to show off his skills in an extended drum solo. Canadian-born soprano, Ashley Alt, will be making her debut, ably assisted and abetted by CMO!’s own soprano soloist, Ninette Smit, and we hope they will work together again later in the year. Sedgefield’s own child soprano, Leticia van As, will also be lifting her voice in song to welcome Spring with Linda Ronstadt’s beautiful song Winter Light. Tickets at R80, with scholars at R20, are available from Ann Carroll (083 275 7576) at the NGK office or at the door on the night. To add to your enjoyment, refreshments will be on sale during the interval in aid of The Living Cornerstone Alzheimer’s Residence. If you can’t make it to the Sedgefield concert (or would like to hear it again) don’t despair as the same programme will be performed at St Mark’s Cathedral in George on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 October at 19:00. Tickets on a reserved seat basis at the Cathedral Office from 08:00 to 13:00 on weekdays (044 873 3239) – or you can take pot luck at the door on the night. ... See MoreSee Less
