Village Talk

The Village Talk envisages itself as one of the central hubs that connects the members of this small community together. We proudly call the small KZN town of Howick (situated just north of Pietermaritzburg) home, and are dedicated to providing residents with hyper-local news about events, sports, personalities and entertainment occurring within our area of distribution. Moreover, we publish notices, classifieds and directories of business’s operating in the area.

A large portion of Howick’s residents are wealthy retirees wanting to spend their golden years in a tranquil environment, and as a publication that aims to meet the needs of our target audience, we strive to reach high standards with regards to journalistic excellence and integrity by providing news that is pertinent and interesting.

Additionally, we view ourselves as a fully entrenched member of Howick’s thriving community, and as such, we look for every opportunity to make a positive contribution to our happy home.
