Editor and lifter of heavy things
Sales and Client Services: Joy Lambie ❶
082 389 2024 / (044) 343 2415
Joy has been with The EDGE for three years and certainly is an integral part of the team. Energetically handling advertising enquiries, chasing artwork, keeping clients happy and heading off to source new business from George to Knysna, her positivity and faith in humankind are more than admirable.
Proof Reader: Nikki Jones ❷
(No dialogue shall be entered into).
After more than ten years wielding her red pen at The EDGE, Nikki is not only passionate about making sure our ‘i’s are dotted and ‘t’s crossed- she also assists in assessing what is and isn’t suitable for reading consumption in a community newspaper.
Accounts and Classifieds: Margie Mather ❸
With 13 years at The EDGE Margie is the backbone of the business, and normally the voice of sanity that keeps it on track and viable as a newspaper. She not only handles all the figurework, billing and money collection, but also manages the office, keeps the rest of us in line (almost) and controls the classified advertising. When deadline day is on – she gets stuck in and assists with page make up too. (Possibly the only bookkeeper in the world who is proficient in Corel Draw!)
❹ Design and Layout: Kelly Webb
(044) 343 2415
Co-owner of The EDGE since its inception in 1998, Kel is responsible for advert design as well as the layout of the newspaper up to print stage. She stares seemingly impossible deadlines in the face without breaking a sweat, even when they whoosh past, and somehow always comes up trumps with a great looking paper.
❺ Editor and lifter of heavy things: Bomber Webb
072 516 4701 / (044) 343 2415
Having been the only man on the team since day one, Bomber has learnt to keep his head down when the pressure is on. He writes most of the leading news articles in The EDGE, and, where necessary, assists with the design. He tries to manage the company too, when the ladies let him.
The EDGE also has a large group of ‘unnofficial’ team players who are a huge part of the paper’s success and longevity. Without its regular columnists, photographic submissions and story-seekers from the community, The EDGE would certainly not be the paper it is today.

As a last minute and thrilling addition to the Slow Festival this year, festinos will have the amazing opportunity to see internationally acclaimed singer/ songwriter, Auriol Hays,...
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
