A word from the Editor

Welcome to our new website. While our refurbished online home has been designed to be more attractive, its main purpose is to widen and deepen the interaction we have with our readers. Over the next few weeks, we plan to publish online versions of selected top stories, along with a space for readers to post comments. This is part of a longer-term plan to link our three main platforms – website, Facebook and print – to enable feedback, add content and generally improve our coverage of Golden Bay’s news. We hope that you like our refreshed format and look forward to getting the website fully up and running.
