Southlands Sun

The Southlands Sun boasts over twenty years’ experience in the community newspaper industry, and by all indications, we are set to move from strength to strength when looking to provide our local readers the highest quality and most relevant news items in the future.

Winning Caxton Media’s 2009 Newspaper of the Year award is but one example of recognition that we have reached the gold standard in publishing. Our distribution area is the South Durban Basin and its surrounds (the Bluff, Yellowwood Park and Montlands), and over the years we have striven to build a strong and trust based relationship with our valued audience. We are cognisant of the fact that our publication has been tasked by South Durban Basin residents to offer breaking news that is important and absolutely credible, and strive continuously to meet their expectations.

In terms of presenting a “mall between the covers”, our retailer inserts ensure that our community are well-informed about product prices and promotions on offer by the various stores in our region. From the retailers’ perspective, the Sun is a perfect channel through which they can keep their customers knowledgeable about their respective products.

On a final note, and in keeping with the times, our online platform provides our readers with another medium through which they can access the news they need to know. Our online presence guarantees that the Sun is never more than a few clicks away.
