Times of Ladysmith

The Times of Ladysmith is a sister publication to the ever popular and well-regarded Ladysmith Gazette, and its genesis lies in the recognition that the residents of the Ladysmith metropolitan area could benefit significantly from a free offering from the Gazette. Like the Gazette, the Times strives to reach the highest levels of journalistic excellence when it comes to reporting on local news, sports, school events, local personalities and entertainment. Furthermore, we view ourselves as a member of the community, and as such look for every opportunity to make positive contributions to the areas in which distribute the paper.

Whereas the Gazette can proudly boast a history that spans over a century, the Times is a much younger exploit; however, our core principles have been inherited from our sister publication, and we therefore look forward to a future in which we become synonymous with being a news source that is beyond reproach when the question of credibility arises.

Additionally, our retailers’ inserts ensure that our readers are well informed when making decisions concerning product purchases. This is to say that an informed shopper is a smart shopper and, in difficult times, it is imperative to make every cent count.
