Editor Nick Unkovich and reporter Danica MacLean strive to bring a mix of stories to readers each week with particular emphasis on the positive things happening in the community.
The Whangarei Leader welcomes news from clubs and community groups. Don't worry about writing a story. Just tell us who, where, when, what and why.
The Whangarei Leader welcomes letters to the editor. Just bear in mind these rules. Letters should not exceed 250 words. All letters must have full name, residential address and phone number. Hard copy letters must have a legible signature. Only your name and suburb are published. We prefer letters about local issues. Open letters and poetry are seldom used. We discourage personal attacks - try to advance the debate.
We now have digital editions of all our suburban newspapers which are available on the day of publication.
