Seniors News expands into Coffs Coast, Clarence Valley

SENIORS Newspaper with its distinctive yellow banner will hit the news-stands in Coffs Harbour and Clarence Valley for the first time on May 16.

"For more than 19 years Seniors has been the recognised source of news and information for South East Queensland's over 55's," General Manager Geoff Crockett said.

"We are now the largest circulating senior's specific newspaper group in this area and are pleased to now be bringing the Coffs Coast and Clarence Valley communities their very own Seniors monthly print publication, daily online offerings and lively social media presence."

The success of Seniors has been the unique combination of news and information from both professional journalists and the local community's own columnists and travel writers.

The publication is filled with national features, local news and profiles together with hyper local community notes. To satisfy our reader's appetite for expert advice, we have gathered together a wide range of columnists including professionals in the fields of finance, health, travel and legal areas.

This coverage has proved to be a valuable community connection and source of information and entertainment for readers.

Naturally this environment is a great space for business people to present their products both in print and on

The longevity of Seniors Newspaper is testament to its ability to address the pace of current Over 55 lifestyle changes. "Our ethos is to respect the old and reflect the new," Editor Gail Forrer said. 

"We're profiling inspirational older people, discussing working longer in a variety of areas, considering alternative housing and health options and ensuring Government hears our voice on important issues."

Seniors Newspaper's goal is to make a positive contribution to everyday lives and we have found the best way to reach our readers is through a diverse distribution network that takes in bulk drops to shopping centers, local bowls, golf, sports and surf clubs, libraries, information centers, RSL, pharmacies, retirement village and hospitals.
