Something we should know…
tell us about it
PakMag exists to help local families connect, learn and grow.
Our Community Noticeboard helps you share your message with our thriving community.
Whether you are a mum, dad, grandparent, student, community group, not-for-profit, sporting team, school, business or other local organisation with a good news story or event to share – tell us about it!
We are looking for:
- Good news stories
- Profile pieces on local people and little legends, who make our community a better place, have achieved something great, or have an interesting story to share.
- Information on fundraisers and other local events, to help spread awareness and support your cause
Maybe you’re a local sporting team who have won a State Championship, or you know a school teacher who has won an award and deserves acknowledgement, a local business who’ve secured the coveted ‘best pie’ award at the National titles or you’ve got a sign-on event, community day or fundraiser we should know about – we’d love to hear from you.
Basically… if there is something significant that has happened or is about to happen in the community – shout it from the pages of the PakMag Community Noticeboard for all to see!
