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.

Last night Slow Festival Programme Director Amanda Dixon was delighted to hear from the Miss South Africa offices that Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters will be returning to Sedgefield for the Slow Festival weekend, and leading the Parade on Easter Sunday.
At the suggestion of Demi's mother, Anne-Mari Steenkamp, Amanda had contacted the Miss SA Offices in Sun City asking what the chances would be of Demi being in the village over the Easter weekend. But understanding the newly crowned Miss South Africa's hectic schedule, she didn't for one moment think it would be possible.
Then last night an email came through from Lerato Kekana of the Miss SA offices saying that Demi would indeed be coming back to her home town on the weekend of 14 April, and would thus be able to take part in the festivities.
Said Amanda "It's been an incredibly positive week with all sorts of amazing news, additions & happenings for the Festival, so receiving the confirmation from Demi's PA and the Miss SA Offices was just too exciting for words! Now that the news is out and it's all official, we can all start preparing to make it the best Miss South Africa homecoming and welcome ever... Please join us on Sunday 16th April at 13h00 for the Slow Festival Easter Street Parade." ... See MoreSee Less
