About us

RBudd_1606_Tumbulgum_COPY_6657-webSince 1992, the Tweed Valley Weekly has established itself as one of the region’s most respected local news sources. Produced in print every Thursday, The Weekly is a must have free local paper for local readers.

The Weekly is a must have for locals because our focus is the Tweed community. Our team of eight employees are committed to featuring the local news and events that shape the Tweed and achieving the best outcomes for our clients.

Our advertisers are provided a platform to reach almost 50,000 (online included) dedicated local readers per week. Our audiences have never been more engaged and The Weekly hopes to continue expanding with the growing landscape of the Tweed.

You can always find an honest and hardworking local operator in The Weekly and our print edition has the best Trades and Professional Services listings on the Tweed. We ensure our clients are given complete access to our latest website and social media platforms, which continue to grow.

Our new approach to advertorials for clients means we can provide tailored feature stories to local businesses with photography, which ensures their customers know they’re dealing with a local small business owner.

“Saw it in The Weekly,” is a common phase around the Tweed and while it can be difficult to find a copy in some areas, we have almost zero wastage meaning every copy is valued. Many of our local readers comment that they read each edition from front to back.

Our editorial approach is a commitment to excellence in journalism and a commitment to uphold the integrity of a person’s story. We receive an overwhelming amount of good and sometimes bad feedback every week. This is something The Weekly team embrace and encourage to ensure balance in reporting is maintained.

Editor and owner Jonathon Howard has an open door policy and encourages readers and advertisers to get in contact with The Weekly, drop by the office on Queen Street and make your next campaign, sale, or news story a reality.

Thank you for supporting your local newspaper.

Hope you’ve got your copy.
