We are very aware of our role as a local community newspaper but we require a regular monthly income to cover production and other costs.
The Herald depends on computers and software for processing emails, formatting stories and advertisements, and putting the paper together so that it is print-ready.
We start production 10 days before publication, starting on a Monday and working through the following weekend.
Those involved include the editor, graphic artist, office and advertising administrator, sub-editors, production staff who place articles and advertisements into newspaper templates and, proof readers.
The Herald makes a small annual profit to enable us when necessary to buy or replace equipment – especially computers and software – so that our volunteer production team can continue to produce your award-winning local communitynewspaper.
Articles received are considered for publication and are printed at no charge.
Flyers for forthcoming events are not printed free of charge, as they are deemed to be advertising.
