Celebrate our birthday with us

Plainsman reports on the communitys cry to have Beacon Hill Dune removed.

For just about as long as Mitchell’s Plain has been in existence, the Plainsman has been the number one source of local news for its residents.

Week after week, for the past 40 years, we have been reporting on the stories that matter to our readers, sharing in their sadness and their joy, and challenging those who can, to help make a difference in the lives of others.

As a community newspaper, we believe that everyone has a story to tell and that every story is important.

And so, as we celebrate our 40th anniversary this year, we invite you to share those stories with us.

On Wednesday September 25 we are going to take a break from the norm and step back in time with the publication of a keepsake souvenir edition in which we celebrate Mitchell’s Plain, its people and the Plainsman’s role in recording the history of this, at times troubled, but always vibrant and dynamic community.

So, dig out those old letters and pictures. Call back the past and share your stories with us. We’d also love to hear from organisations, schools and other institutions turning 40 this year. And if you know a fabulous 40-year-old making a difference in his or her community, we’d love to hear about them too.
