Middleburg Observer

The Middelburg Observer Newspaper has a long history and proven track record when it comes to delivering on its promise to publish news that is accurate and highly relevant to residents of Middelburg and its surrounds. Established in 1903, the paper produces award winning editorial content that cuts across the boundaries of race, gender and economic status. As a community publication, the Middelburg Observer reports on local news, local sports, issues concerning local governance, entertainment, school events, motoring news and shopping deals.

With a print order of 21 500 copies every Friday and 7 000 copies every Tuesday, the Observer is distributed to the residents of Middelburg, Belfast, Hendrina, Komati Kragstasie, Wonderfontein, Arnot, Pullenshope, Witbank, Groblersdal, Marble Hall, Loskop and Stofberg.

A property market supplement is published in every edition of the paper, and a motoring supplement (the Autodealer) is published during the final week of every month. Along with the Observer’s sister publications, the paper is printed locally on the premises of CTP Middelburg.
