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.

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
