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.
Drum roll...... Yes - the Christmas Edition of The EDGE (did I mention the World's favourite community newspaper?) is up and ready to read online - just visit www.edgecommunitynews.co.za. For those who (like me) prefer a 'hard copy' - the printed edition will be 'on the streets' from lunchtime onwards. It's a bumper edition (hence the rings under my eyes) and choc-a-block full of EVERYTHING local including, sadly, the tragic accident on the N2 in which two much-loved locals lost their lives, and a brief report about the elderly lady who was mugged in Groenvlei by an unknown woman. On the brighter side we catch-up chat with Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters' (that's Miss Universe, by the way) mother, who is back from Las Vegas, and share lot of details about our local charities.... Plus all the local news, views, blues and phew!s... Read on, and please enjoy! ... See MoreSee Less
