Zoutpansberger

 

The Zoutpansberger will celebrate its 30th birthday in January 2015. Unlike other media, successful comunity newspapers do not "belong" to an individual. They cannot

be run successfully from a remote office in another town or city. The community needs to take ownership of the newspaper and to great extent dictate what the news of the week will be. The Zoutpansberger is one example where a community has taken ownership of a newspaper and ensured its continued growth for almost 30 years.
