Taranaki Community News is a volunteer run news website that exists to give a platform to real, positive community news in our region.

We are a very small (but incredibly passionate) team of volunteers and although we are qualified multi-media journalists, we all have full time jobs outside of this. That means we can’t do all the wonderful stories in Taranaki by ourselves. We simply don’t have the time.

But, what we do have is this wonderful platform.

So, we like to encourage community groups to supply us with quality content they have created themselves.

Then if your content is newsworthy and fits in with our ethos, we set about editing it and running our journalistic talents over it. Once it’s ready we share it out on our platform.

Then it’s up to you to share it with your networks! Please remember to tag us in your posts as it helps us to grow our reach – which is great for the whole community.

So, please feel free to send us stories or press releases, and we will see what we can do. We do also take suggestions for stories and features written by us, and we do Q&As – but we simply can’t do this for everyone. We’re also always on the look out for volunteer writers, with a flair for storytelling. If that’s you, then please get in touch.
