ABOUT THE BLENHEIM SUN

Why Us?

Well, we’ve been your local trusted Blenheim Sun newspaper since 2002. Our stories inform our community about what matters. Our stories also entertain, enlighten and inspire, forming the fabric of our community.

Our employees are part of the community too. We are your friends and neighbours. The figures below show The Sun is a popular read. For some it’s the Text Talk page, for others it’s the crossword. For most it’s the grassroots 100% local content direct from our community. For us it’s a privilege to bring you a local community newspaper every Wednesday and Friday. Newspapers continue to reign supreme in the delivery of local news.

If you want to know what’s going on, there is no substitute for a trusted local newspaper that is doing its job. That’s our recipe – news about our community for our community.
