We want to hear your news

The Chronicle has introduced a new featured called The Last Word and is hoping to hear about your comings and goings.

We’re introducing a new feature today on Page 23 called The Last Word, and we’re hoping you’ll want to be part of it.

It’s a great way to get more faces and names into the paper, and we hope you’ll enjoy reading about your friends, family members and neighbours.

We have our Smile of the Week feature, which highlights one person off the street who answers a few fun questions for us, as well as a Talk on the Street feature where three people will share their opinions about a pressing issue in the community.

One thing we’re very excited about is “Heard around town…”, a collection of brief notes about the comings and goings in Ladysmith, Chemainus, Saltair and the Cedar-Yellow Point-Cassidy area. And this is where we especially need your help.

These are small notes that aren’t quite long enough for a full article but are still interesting, thought-provoking and noteworthy.

We want to share your stories, so please send us your news, your accomplishments and your highlights. If you’ve ever thought ‘I don’t know if this is something I should tell the paper,’ now is your chance to share those thoughts.

We want to hear from you.

If you have something you would like to share for “Heard around town…”, please send it to us at editor@ladysmithchronicle.com. Who knows, it could even turn into a feature article!
