Limited Hard Copies of Home Hill News in the Future

THE Home Hill News will transition to a primarily digital publication by the end of this year

THE Home Hill News will transition to a primarily digital publication by the end of this year, with limited numbers of printed copies available each month from February 2023. 

In readiness for the change, readers who currently look forward to their printed copy of their favourite local publication
at the beginning of each month are encouraged to provide their email address to the Home Hill Chamber of Commerce.

This will ensure they are added to the electronic distribution list to have Home Hill News sent directly to their inbox each month. 

Chamber President David Jackson said hundreds of readers were already receiving an electronic version of Home Hill News, to read online or print their own hard copy.

The Home Hill News will also be available for readers to access through the Chamber’s web site, from where it is already available.

“For those who do not have a computer, the Chamber will be arranging for some hard copies to be printed each month at a minimal price of about one dollar per copy – but it will have to be ordered and paid for in advance,” the Chamber President said. “This will come into effect from February 2023.

“In the meantime, the number of printed copies of Home Hill News available each month will gradually reduce as our digital subscriptions increase.”

The Home Hill Chamber is grateful for the excellent support received 

from Wilmar Sugar for more than four years and has expressed its gratitude to the company for their ongoing sponsorship, which helped set the publication on its way to being the main source of local news for the local public. Mr Jackson said Wilmar management had offered their support with the printing of the news- letter in full colour after an original printing source was lost and it had been ongoing since that time. 

“The Home Hill News originally started with just two pages, and it has risen to 12 pages this week – and in that time, the printing has continued monthly with the excellent support of the management and administration staff of Inkerman Mill,” he said. 

“With printing costs increasing significantly, we knew that the sponsorship would not be able to continue forever. 

“The Chamber management 

committee had already started looking at alternatives, should Wilmar no longer be able to sustain the current print demands.” 

Mr Jackson said the Chamber was extremely grateful to Wilmar Inker- man Mill for the excellent support they had provided over many years, as their staff devoted many hours of their work time each month to the printing of the publication at a time when mainstream media organisations were totally ignoring the town and its activities – except when something disastrous occurred, such as serious accidents.
