I would like to write to you personally and on behalf of the entire Phoenix Group of Newspapers to thank you for your continued support of our publications over the last few weeks during the Coronavirus crisis.
It has proven to be a very stressful period for many, and will no doubt continue to be over at least the next few weeks. While we have done it tough here at the Phoenix, there are many other local businesses doing it much tougher, and I would like to let them all know that our thoughts and best wishes are with them. We will continue to support the local community as best we can by providing all of the up to date local news, as well as continuing to offer our publishing space to all of our advertisers, past, present and future.
With that said, I would to take this opportunity to confirm to all of our readers and advertisers that we will continue to publish our weekly newspaper as we normally would. I understand that there is much uncertainty around community media at the moment, but we are here to stay. We have plans in place to ensure our future viability, and while our staff are all working remotely from home at the moment, they are all still contactable by phone, email and social media.
While there are still further challenges ahead, we will still be the local voice of the community, as we have been over the last few years. Our newspapers will continue to be free of charge, and while there are some outlets that we cannot distribute from at the moment, our newspapers will still be available from all others, we will also still be distributing our rural copies through Australia Post and uploading a digital edition each week on our website and Facebook.
Please let it be known that we are with everyone through this tough time, and will always be available to support the community wherever we can.
