Due to the lockdown arrangements which are to remain in effect across Victoria, The Local Paper and Melbourne Observer newspapers will not be published this week (Wed., July 21).
This decision is made out of an abundance of caution regarding the health and safety of our distribution team, who normally have more than 1000 personal contacts when they deliver our newspapers to outlets across Victoria.
We want to be on the streets regularly with weekly newspapers as soon as possible. The accounts of our advertisers will be adjusted accordingly so they receive the full value of their purchases. We apologise for any invconvenience caused by reasons beyond our control.
We will keep advertisers and readers advised of our return to our normal publishing arrangements.
