GEORGE | KNYSNA | PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - To our readers who have noticed more regional news in Knysna-Plett Herald and George Herald of late and miss getting a whole paper's worth of local news, we offer the following explanation.
As a result of the pandemic, advertising has dropped to the point where we have had to amalgamate Knysna-Plett Herald and George Herald into a regional newspaper with a larger footprint for the time being.
The result is that, at present, the hyper-local Knysna news is mixed with the dispatches from George - and vice versa. If you are inclined to log on for your news, however, the good news is that the focus of the online Knysna-Plett Herald and George Herald remains primarily news from each area.
As the Western Cape seems to be peaking in terms of its Covid-spread, we hope to see things back to normal in the not-too-distant future where we have our individual papers back with all the local news packaged in the fashion our readers are accustomed to.
