Seniors News team visits the sights of Lismore and Ballina

FROM Lismore's copper boat skeleton to Ballina's Big Prawn, the Seniors News team have seen it all on their trip down the east coast. 

Watch the video above to see a quick insight into the road trip and the launch of the Northern NSW Seniors Newspaper. 

Libraries, pharmacies, coffee shops, bowls clubs and RSL's in the Northern NSW region will now distribute the Seniors Newspaper and the support received by these organisations was fantastic for the editorial team to see first-hand. 

General manager Geoff Crockett, editor Gail Forrer and digital producer Taya Sweeney travelled down the Bruce Highway on Monday morning, from head office in Maroochydore, to be on the ground as the new paper hit the streets. 

Seniors Newspaper is now available to the residents of Murwillumbah, Lismore and Kyogle in the Northern NSW region, sweeping up the coastline to Evans and Tweed heads while taking in areas such as Byron Bay, Ballina, Lennox Heads and Nimbin, with unique local news from the regions also available online. 

The longevity of Seniors Newspaper is testament to its ability to address the pace of current Over 55 lifestyle changes.

 "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," Gail Forrer said.

From May 16, the news network will be distributing to the Clarence Valley and Coffs Harbour regions, across print, online and social platforms. 

ARM acquired the Seniors News Network in 2015 and has successfully refreshed and grown the network, expanding its print, online and social footprint across regional Queensland.
