New editor for Seniors newspapers is Sunshine Coast local

WHILE Sunshine Coast Seniors Newspaper paper celebrates 18 years of publication, I am celebrating my first week as the new editor of Senior Newspapers.

Not that I am a new journalist/editor, I have worked for APN newspapers on the Sunshine Coast for more than 20 years and I have lived on the Coast for more than 30 years.

I am also a mother, grandmother and post-graduate uni student who loves books, body surfing and a stroll on the beach.

I see my appointment as an opportunity of building on the already strong foundation of this newspaper and with your ideas, news and views - adding to the well established reputation of this popular publication.

In my position I lead the editorial style of paper, however this is a community driven newspaper and I lead in partnership with all of our experienced writers, readers, contributors and staff who have shaped this successful paper into what it is today.

As always Gill MacDonald remains as your regular reporter: Email gill@seniorsnewspapers.com.au

But, don't be shy; I'm looking forward to hearing from you too.

I trust your will enjoy this month's read as you bath in the start of Spring on our superb Sunshine Coast.
