Four years ago on 4th March 2016 the very first issue of The Parkes Phoenix appeared on the streets. Today we celebrate our 200th issue!
We’ve done our best to inspire you with all the positive and uplifting stories in our community, informed you about what is happening, entertained you with some lighter news and hopefully educated you on some issues.
In a time when newspapers are either closing down or cutting down drastically, we’ve had nothing but support and encouragement from our loyal readers, contributors and advertisers.
Thank you to everyone who picks up a copy every week, read us online, or follow us on Facebook. We really appreciate all your contributions of stories, photos, news tips, thumbs, letters and comments. A huge thank you to our advertisers for your ongoing support. It is wonderful to be part of this community and to share in the stories that spread kindness.
