From the Editor’s Desk

The Lockyer & Somerset Independent general manager Bruce Horrocks.

WELCOME to your new look Lockyer and Somerset Independent.

If you are reading the print version of this newspaper you will have already noticed the changes.

We have moved to a bigger and cleaner format, and we hope you like our new look.

As the new owners of this newspaper take the reins, The Independent has been remodelled and we hope you enjoy the changes.

The same team you know and trust will still be compiling your weekly read with the same community based content and information you have come to love.

As Valetta Media bows out, we thank you the community for your support of this newspaper since its inception and we hope you are able to offer the same advertising and readership support to the new owners Ipswich Media Pty Ltd as they continue to keep the community in community newspapers.
