A new look at local news


November marks the third issue of Ōtaki Today, and already we're up to 28 pages. Ōtaki Today is a  completely new look at local news.

We now produce 5500 copies, and we're constantly reviewing numbers to ensure we're reaching everyone in the area. For anyone looking for extra copies, we have news stands at RiverStone Café, Gorge Café, Café SixtySix, Te Horo Café and Brown Acres Market in Manakau. If you have people overseas who you know want to keep up with local news, tell them to click on this website every month.

Ōtaki is clearly a town on the move. A growing population wants to know what this town is all about, and wants the news that matters to them. We think our November issue gives readers a good indication of how we look at local news.

There are lots of informative stories outlining what's happening here. Three men who've had enough of the P problem in our town are organising a hikoi on December 1. They feature on the front cover. There are also stories recognising the achievements of Ōtaki College's best and brightest, who were honoured at the recent college prize-giving.  Plus so much more news and views.

This is why we’ve begun a new newspaper – to tell the stories that matter.
