About Us

Founded in 1971 as Newsbrief by local notable Dianne Mason, it was originally a typewritten tabloid news sheet reflecting an area very much a part of a rural age.

Major changes have been and continue to swirl 38 years later as Auckland's growth rushes on.

Today, the Nor-west News publishes weekly on a Thursday with a circulation of 9944.

We cover mainly a rural readership which is ever-changing and growing.

The nor-west district still maintains and fights for its rural identity while many life-style blocks attract Aucklanders who now enjoy living and commuting from their picturesque country, farm, forest, beach and village views.

Readers enjoy their local newspaper as their voice away from the "doom and gloom" often portrayed in daily media.

Stories range from celebrating local success and quirky animal antics to standing for local issues or enduring both the physical and emotional storms of life.

A strong community spirit is evident with residents and businesses rallying around locals for fundraisers which range from families in need to rising sports stars and new school facilities.

There is also the popular tradition of attending agricultural and horticultural shows, Christmas parades, markets and festivals.

Our news aims to be relevant to our readers with interesting and balanced stories reflecting the diversity and talent of our community.

Our friendly and hospitable staff include a mixture of long-time residents and new neighbouring west Aucklanders who are always keen on finding out what's happening in our patch.

Like the winds of time, change is certain and at a faster rate - but together we can keep each other informed along the way.
